The Vienna State Ballet. Principal Dancer: Ludmila Konovalova. / 2013-05-23
Unique technique, united with the nobility of classical ballet dancer, is, at first glance, a particular advantage of the ballerina Ludmila Konovalova’s, who was awarded the title of prima ballerina at the end of last season by Manuel Legris, at the festival "Nureyev Gala 2011".
If all performed roles by Knovalova, as a guest, in Vienna in September 2010 at the Vienna State Ballet were demonstrated, it would be clear that she is able to dance stylistically more complex roles than is generally characterized by purely classical ballerina. The range of her possibilities has vast variety of roles from the romantic heroine in "Giselle" that had been expressed by the excellent performance of the role of Kitri / Dulcinea the the majestic Queen of the Dryads in "Don Quixote", the drama of adolescence Olga in Cranko’s "Onegin", George Balanchine’s ballerina in the "Theme and Variations", romantically tinged with role in Robbins’s "In the Night". It is obvious that Konovalova perfumes a dancer, combining classical and modern in the Tharp’s "Variations on a Theme by Haydn", right up to modern ballet dancer in " The Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude" Forsythe or performing something contemporary in Bubenchik’s «LeSouffledelesprit». Dancer, who graduated from the Moscow State Ballet Academy, started her way to Vienna at first paved in the Russian State Ballet, where she played the main roles of the classical repertoire. In 2007, she was at the State Ballet of Berlin, where among others she performed in Malakhov’s "Sleeping Beauty" ,"Cinderella" and «LaPeri», Bart’s "Giselle" and also "Swan Lake", "Nutcracker" and "The Heart Flame " ," Sylvia "by Ashton and even in« GloriesoftheRomanticBallet ».
The first and most strong thread to Vienna she made in 2007, when she won the vÖTR-Contest. Subsequent awards she has achieved in the competition "Young Russian Ballet" in Krasnodar, at the International Ballet Competition in Seoul KIBC and competition «Premio Roma». Of all her many tours we note here perhaps the only tour in July 2011 in Japan, she gave thanks to Manuel Legris.
