San Francisco Ballet opens its 2012 season with the intensely dramatic Onegin, John Cranko’s masterful adaptation of Alexander Pushkin’s heartbreaking tale of unrequited love between Russian aristocrat Eugene and the beautiful Tatiana.

I’ll be performing in San Francisco Ballet’s Nutcracker on the following dates:

"The pinnacle of the evening, as it should be, was the grand pas de deux essayed by Maria Kochetkova and Gennadi Nedvigin. As the Nutcracker Prince, Nedvigin is superlative, delivering easy soaring jumps with pliant landings and neat, precise multiple pirouettes. Kochetkova, for her part, is both exquisitely refined and remarkably believable as a recently transformed woman-child dancing with wonderment in her eyes." San Francisco Chronicle
