Press Conference


On 21st April a press conference was held at the Bolshoi Theatre conference hall devoted to the 23rd Benois de la danse Festival. World ballet stars nominated for the 2015 Benois de la danse prize were named and the creation of a new joint prize was announced: The Benois de la danse and the Positano Léonide Massine. The Bolshoi received three nominations for the Benois prize as follows: Svetlana Zakharova (for her performance of the main role in the ballet La Dame aux Caméllias and of the part of Mekhmene Banu in Legend of Love), Jean-Christophe Maillot (for his production of The Taming of the Shrew for the Bolshoi Ballet) and Bolshoi Ballet premier dancer Denis Rodkin (for his Ferkhad in Legend of Love). Both Zakharova and Maillot have won the Benois de la danse prize in the past. As for Denis Rodkin, it was just last year that Ballet magazine picked him out as an Up-and-Coming star and here he is already a nominee of the so-called ballet Oscar!
