FAB #Mariinsky Balanchine bill. Don’t recall a better overall perf of Apollo w/ Shapran a playful Terpsichore to Shklyarov’s youthful God.

Balanchine's Dream is just magical, Tereshkina perfectly elfin with a tiny touch of malice. Loved every second #Mariinsky

Didn't think I would get confused by midsummer night's dream but I did. #Mariinsky 3 oberons & Sylvia in black tutu? was my thought in act1

Outstanding performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream.' Tereshkina was a glamorous Titania, dancing with plenty of ease & sweep. #Mariinsky

Apollo not my favourite production, but still enjoyable thanks to charismatic Shklyarov and the always beautiful Shapran #Mariinsky
