Nina Ballerina

I haven’t had the chance to blog about this yet since I’ve been so busy with other writing projects, but I went to see ballet legend Nina Ananiashvili and her State Ballet of Georgia (as in the Republic) last weekend at Brooklyn Academy of Music. I loved it — especially a lovely piece combining ballet with traditional Georgian folk dance by Yuri Possokhov and Alexei Ratmansky’s “Dreams About Japan,” brilliantly combining traditional Japanese dance and Kabuki theater with classical ballet. This is the best Ratmansky I’ve ever seen.

I’m super busy, but plan to write more about it this weekend — and post more pictures!


  1. The Possohkov was my favorite too! Too bad she didn’t perform the “Dreams about Japan” in Berkeley with her company – Possohkov’s creating another piece for SF Ballet this year, it’ll be good to see what else he’ll pull out of the hat.

  2. Thanks Selly! I actually did this one before — I’ll have to dig it up!

  3. Darn, you did!? I thought you hadn’t lol. Sorry!
