Today, on May 30, The Bolshoi ballet principal Maria Alexandrova performs the main part in "Curtain" one-act ballet premiere at Ekaterinburg Ballet and Opera Theatre. The staging by "Golden Mask" laureate Vyacheslav Samodurov to the music by Ottorino Respighi speaks of love to profession of ballerina.

"This is about us, about the artists. About our fears, skills, routine , horror. Because the audience can see only the beauty, the curtain call, the ovations and fame. And there is a lot of pain, blood and hard work behind all of this. But this is our happiness. This performance is my prayer to the dance", - said Alexandrova to TASS reporters.

We wish Maria a successful premiere!
