Earlier this month I was fortunate to get press photography access to The Russian Ballet Icons Gala rehearsal at the London Coliseum. It was inspiring and will take me weeks to edit the hundreds of photos that I took. Below are just a few of the candid pictures snapped.
Iana Salenko, warming up for Diana and Acteon. Iana featured alongside Steven McRae and Thiago Soares in the Baileys Christmas commercial based on The Nutcracker.
Daria Klimentova and Vadim Muntagirov enjoying their pas de deux from Act III of Sleeping Beauty. Daria recently announced her intention to retire from ENB at the end of the current season. Vadim debuted as Principal with the Royal Ballet last month.
Sergei Polunin and Ksenia Ryzhkova rehearsing the pas de deux from Act III of Don Quixote. Both are at the Stanislavsky Theatre, Ksenia is Principal and Sergei is Senior Principal.
