Prima Ballerina, Uliana Lopatkina, Performs at Yale

On October 14, 2015, NHB students had the privilege of attending a special event at Yale School of Music Morse Recital Hall in which Ukrainian prima ballerina, Uliana Lopatkina, performed. Upon graduating from the Vaganova Academy of Russian Ballet in St. Petersburg, Ms. Lopatkina enjoyed a wondrous career dancing with the company of the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, where she was named principal dancer in 1995. The performance celebrated three of Russia’s greatest ballet legends: Anna Pavlova, Galina Ulanova and Maya Plietskaya, and featured Ms. Lopatkina in pieces ranging from Swan Lake and Chopiniana to The Dying Swan. Also featured was Andrey Ermakov, who joined the Mariinsky Ballet in 20015 upon graduating from the Vaganova Academy. NHB thanks Yale University for generously sponsoring and making this event possible! Photos: (c) 2015 Michael Marsland.DSC_7579a-2DSC_7438a-2DSC_7340a-2
