At the Bolshoi theatre, the incredible happened: the famous prima ballerina, the national actress of Russia Maria Aleksandrova wrote a statement about leaving the troupe. The external reasons for voluntary withdrawal of the best ballet troupe in the world was not. In my 38 years of Maria in top form. It has no special health issues (a few years ago, the ballerina got the most difficult trauma, after which she had to re-learn to walk, but Maria triumphantly returned to the stage). In addition, for several years now and her partner on stage and in life is a great Big Prime Minister Vlad Lantratov. Finally, we know from reliable sources that the ballerina is not currently pregnant.

So a bombshell for fans of the ballet was published by Maria in social networks in a statement: “Beloved,
dear audience and colleagues! I want to thank everyone and to say a big Human
THANK you for the way that we have done together in the walls of the Bolshoi Theatre! But it’s nice
the story is finished. I took a decision, turn this page. Place
artist on stage, everything else it’s the lyrics, the illusion and empty, a soul-destroying hassle.
THANK you! My teachers N. Semizorova L. and V. S. Lagunova for attention, talent, experience,
respect and love for the profession, which they taught me until the last minute and the last
the notes sounded today!!! THANK you, my beloved and unforgettable Tatiana Nikolaevna
Golikova, part of which is forever in me and with me! Life goes on, it will be even
many interesting and important! I wish You luck and patience! always Yours, Masha Alexandrova.”

Act prima puzzled everyone. Reaching a certain age (under 20 years of dance experience in ballet retire), actors usually continue to work at home or are moving to
a small simple party, or become Tutors. But Alexandrov is in brilliant form and it is obvious that she is ready to dance principal roles and more.

The theatre in which prima has worked for almost twenty years, through his press service explained the strange situation: “on 19 January this year, the prima ballerina of the Bolshoi
theater, people’s artist of Russia Maria Aleksandrova has submitted a letter of resignation
at his own request. It’s a personal decision
ballerina… the Manual
theatre and the leaders of the ballet have repeatedly met with her, offering
to continue working in theatre… However, Maria Alexandrova is not

This explanation cleared up a little this almost detective situation. And fans Alexandrova organized hashtag #furnitureluxury. Some colleagues in the theater, too, encouraged the artist to change the decision. But some of the dancers did not say anything…

Alexandrova started dancing at the children’s ensemble “Kalinka”, and then graduated from the Moscow Academy of choreography. At the graduation concert, she was dancing with
artist of the Bolshoi theatre Nikolay Tsiskaridze,
a partnership which has developed it in school (by the way, unlike Alexandrova, Tsiskaridze always said that will never willingly leave Big). In 1997, Alexandrov won the prestigious Moscow ballet competition (at the gala, she again danced with Nikolai Tsiskaridze, who also won the gold medal). After that, she took in the Large, where, eventually, Maria took the highest step in the ballet hierarchy — became a prima ballerina.

What will the Alexandrov after leaving the Bolshoi, she says. By the way, recently Maria has played Cesonio in plastic the play “Caligula” in the Provincial theatre. So maybe your future ballerina connects with a dramatic scene. And while Maria received hundreds of touching messages of support from around the world from his fans.
