Fifth International Ballet Competition Vaganova-Prix Underway in St. Petersburg

The fifth international ballet competition Vaganova-Prix opened yesterday in the Museum of the Vaganova Russian Ballet Academy to continue until June 26. Founded in 1988 as a competition between ballet colleges of the former USSR, Vaganova-Prix received the status of an international competition in 1995. Many of its graduates have become famous dancers, including Irina Zhelonina, Igor Markov, Anna Polikarpova, Ulyana Lopatina, Maya Dumchenko, Andrian Fadyeyev, Svetlana Zakharova and Igor Kolb.

At this year's competition, participants include ballet school senior year students from various Russian cities, namely Moscow, St. Petersburg, Perm, Novosibirsk, Voronezh, Krasnoyarsk, Kazan, Saratov, and Ufa, and also from Armenia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Estonia, Brazil, Hungary, Italy, Poland, the US, South Korea, and Japan.

A year after the constitutional referendum of December 4th, 2016 that saw the victory of the NAY and the blatant defeat of the government front that had proposed the referendum, it can be said with certainty that the trauma for the defeated is now past. But there is still fear in them, not so hidden either...
