Bolshoi Theatre to Celebrate Jubilee of the Legendary Vladimir Vasiliev
In honor of the great dancer there will be a performance of Giselle, in his version. The title role will be danced by Marianna Ryzhkina and Myrtha by Galina Stepanenko (debut). Both ballerinas were pupils of the late Yekaterina Maximova. The Bolshoi Theatre congratulates Vladimir Vasiliev on the Liberty prize which has just been presented to him in New York. The prize is awarded for outstanding contributions to the development of Russian-American cultural relations. We also congratulate Mr Vasiliev on his forthcoming birthday (April 18).
