@RoyalOperaHouse another rechoreographed disaster. Have the Bolshoi forgotten how to act as well as dance.

Back @RoyalOperaHouse Bayadere with Olga Smirnova! There is a trumpeter playing Diamonds’ tune beneath my seat, it sounds like a tribute…

Hats off to Daria Bochkova who stepped in to complete Gamzatti’s variation in Act II of #Bolshoi La Bayadere after accident to Alexandrova

Smirnova verdict so far : exquisite & utterly beautiful. Exceeds all the hype no question. #bolshoi

Bolshoi #Bayadere – some nice moments from Obraztsova’s Nikiya, particularly during death solo but she’s still v much building her portrayal
