  1. Nothing wrong with her, but I do really want to know if Ms Salenko has already joined the company permanently and officially. Otherwise, I do not see the point why she is to dance in US as dancer of the RB. I believe that RB has a plenty of the talented dancers who have not played Kitri yet but who can show the brilliance as Kitri in US.

    I really do not understand the company's casting plan.

      Hi Koji,

      Iana Salenko hasn't joined The Royal Ballet and is performing as Guest Artist - these performances follow a number of acclaimed performances as a Guest Artist at Covent Garden and a desire to allow US audiences to see her perform with the Company.
