Her dance is architecture in space. The leading light of Russian ballet, Diana Vishneva, has showed off her flight of fancy during the world premiere of her one-act performance at the Mariinsky Theater.
The star of Sleeping Beauty, Giselle and Swan Lake, just to name a few, the Mariinsky’s darling managed to engage the public into the Dialogue in no time, floating across one of the world’s best stages in St. Petersburg in her beautiful cherry dress.
Balancing on her toes, breaking conventions, striving for perfection on a high emotional pitch, one of Russia’s most versatile ballet dancers, Vishneva has demonstrated the flexibility of her body and soul, dancing her partner “to the end of love”.
In the Dialogue, Vishneva shared the stage with the soloist of the Hamburg Ballet, the charming 28-year-old Brazilian dancer Thiago Bordin.
