Happy début!

We welcomed several first-time performances during our Don Quixote show at the Mariinsky Theatre on 16 December. Yana Erkina made a début in the Grand Pas; Maria Astanina, in the Gypsy Dance and Fandango (along with Savely Kabzhan, who also appeared for the first time in the latter dance); and Rail Khunafin, in the bull fighter role.
