Débuts in Sleeping Beauty

On 26 May, the main venue of Alexandrinsky Theatre witnessed several first-time performances by our dancers. For instance, Yana Erkina made a début as the Fairy of Candour in the French choreographer Jean-Guillaume Bart’s rendition of Sleeping Beauty, while Alyona Grivnina made her first appearance as the Canary Fairy in the same show. Furthermore, Aydar Bikbulatov débuted as one of the Princess’s Suitors, and Anna Shamanova and Polina Zaytseva both joined the ‘Women Knitting’ scene for the first time.

We are delighted to see the dancers make their débuts, and are hoping that they have many more creative triumphs ahead of them!
