The Bolshoi artists successfully finished tour in Hong Kong. The Ballet company dazzled the audience with blazing "Flames of Paris" and radiant "Jewels".
The media noticed the supreme level of mastery of artists who managed to express themselves equally bright and seamless in these 2 ballets of totally different styles.
"The entire company dances with an energy, commitment and sheer physical power which sweep the audience away", South China Morning Post.
"A Pippi-Longstocking-on-speed, it is a hallmark of Bolshoi training that Krysanova brings the same style and temperament to her character dances that she does to her classical variations", Huffpost.
"Anastasia Stashkevich was exquisite in Emeralds and was partnered beautifully by Klim Efimov, a promising young dancer. Kristina Kretova and Igor Tsvirko in Rubies caught the Balanchine style in dazzling fashion, with Kretova personifying the glamour and wit of this ballet", South China Morning Post
"Delicate yet imperious, with gloriously expressive arms and back, Nina Kaptsova gave a commanding account of the central role. Artem Ovcharenko partnered her impeccably and danced superbly", Huffpost.
"Semyon Chudin's effortless jumps, immaculate finishing and partnering were a lesson in the art of the danseur noble", South China Morning Post.
