They’re for Daria Klimentova’s LAST PERFORMANCE with the English National Ballet!
Are you swooning yet?
She’s dancing Juliet with Vadim Muntagirov as Romeo
At the Royal Albert Hall. In the round. Just casual, like.
Here comes the sad part…
It’s not til June!
I admire Daria so much. Have you seen the ENB three-part documentary? I found the first two on YouTube but the third part was so pixelly and rubbish I gave up. The first part followed the company as they rehearsed Swan Lake. Daria was only dancing Odette/Odile as a rehearsal stand-in before some flashy Russian was scheduled to fly in two seconds before the opening curtain or something and take over. She gets given so much outrageous crap by the director and just gets on with it, with grace and good humour. Of course we know now that she did open in that production of Swan Lake and her and Vadim’s performance sparked the renaissance of Daria’s career and drew comparisons with Fonteyn and Nureyev from the critics. HA!
Expect a lot of Daria love in the next few months.
