Vaganova Gala Hermitage Theatre Chopiniana Olga Smirnova Safin 7th Waltz (October 2009)

The Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet has several performances each year at the Hermitage Theatre, where the famous Hermitage Museum is. This video is the 7th Waltz from the music by Frederic Chopin, used in Chopiniana , also known as Les Sylphides. The dancers are Olga Smirnova, then an 8th year student and her partner is Kirill Safin, who was dancing with the Mariinsky Ballet and was used to partner her, due to his superiority as a partner over the male students. Olga Smirnova joined the Bolshoi Ballet this year and in her first month in the Bolshoi has danced Swan Lake pas de trois and the second variation in the Don Quixote grand pas. In November, she is scheduled to dance Myrtha in Giselle, Lilac Fairy and a Maid of Honor in Sleeping Beauty, plus the Queen of Dryads in Don Quixote. Most likely, no ballerina in history has ever done so many debuts in her first two months at either the Bolshoi or Kirov / Mariinsky.
