Something you don’t see everyday. Below is the link to part one and two of the ballet, The Lesson. Enjoy!
Performed by dancers of the Teatro Colon.
Tatiana Terekhova as Gamzatti and Redjen Abdyev as Solor in the grand pas de deux of Gamzatti and Solor from the second act of La Bayadere. Terekhova was a really wonderful dancer from the Kirov. Enjoy!
Below is the Coppelia pas de deux performed at the Bolshoi Ballet. Swanhilda is played by Maria Alexandrova and Franz by Artem Ovcharenko. Such a beautiful and loving pas de deux with expressive choreography and gorgeous music… One of my favorites… Enjoy!
Below is the full pas de deux from Don Quixote 3rd act (Wedding Pas De Deux) of Kitri and Basil. This is the Bolshoi Ballet version with Maria Alexandrova and Vladislav Lantratov.
This video is also the Don Quixote pas de deux, however it is with the Kirov Ballet, the dancers being Olesya Novikova and Leonid Sarafanov.
Both couples are some of my favorite dancers, and they are all wonderfully talented and different in their technical and artistic approach to this pas de deux, and I think it is very interesting when comparing the two. Enjoy!
Above is a video of Yulia Makhalina dancing Paquita. She is such a wonderful ballerina, in fact, I think this particular cast of Paquita was very talented. Igor Zelensky as Lucien is wonderful, so much talent on the stage! This is the end of the grand pas, I will probably post the rest later in the week. It is one of my favorite ballets and since it is not performed so often you should always watch it whenever you get the opportunity! 🙂 please enjoy!!
Romeo and Juliet pas de deux performed by Evgenia Obraztsova and Vladimir Shklyarov. Very beautiful dancing and acting
This pas de deux is also Romeo and Juliet performed by Anna Tikhomirova and Artem Ovcharenko. This is one of my favorite pas de deux, they both perform it so wonderfully in my opinion. It is so romantic, it takes my breath away. Enjoy.
The above link is to a video of the entire pas de deux of Festival en Genzano. This particular video is my absolute favorite, it stars Tatiana Pali and Vladimir Malakhov. Tatiana Pali is the most wonderful dancer, her technique is 110% and so is her artistry, everything is exactly as it is intended to be! Vladimir Malakhov is extraordinary as well, and not enough can be said for his amazing talents.
This piece is so bright, fun and happy! If your day isn’t brightened by it, then you haven’t watched it enough times! 🙂 Tatiana and Vladimir make a wonderful partnership in this extraordinary pas de deux! I hope you thoroughly enjoy every minute!
