John Neumeier, Troisième Symphonie de Gustav Mahler
Nicolas Le Riche and Clairemarie Osta
Ph. Sébastien Mathé
She is seriously so amazing, her technique is so incredibly strong (THOSE FEET) and she’s so graceful and just such a joy to watch onstage in every role she does… another first soloist deserving of principal status at Mariinsky. She dances way more than a few of the current principals that should be gone, IMO.

Appreciation of Sylvie Guillem’s legs and feet in Evidentia (x)
Sylvie Guillem in Grand Pas Classique
this is not okay
When I met her and humbly confessed that of the 20 zillion views on Youtube of Yvette Chauviré rehearsing her for this piece, about half were me, she laughed and said how much she hated G.P. Classique for how sugary sweet it was. Kitch was the word she used, I believe. Oh, Sylvie..
I love her
I want to be her! I say this too much
Evgenia Obraztsova and Vladimir Shklyarov, Mariinsky Ballet
