If there’s something I really love, it’s the dancers who TRULY thanks the orchestra during curtain calls.

tsiskaridze:

Today, February the 18th, marks the 150th year since the birth of Joseph Kschessinsky (1868-1942), Mathilde Kschessinska’s brother.

Like his sister, Felix graduated from the Imperial Theatre School (now Vaganova Ballet Academy) and joined the Mariinsky Theatre company in 1886 as a coryphee. In 1905, during the pre-revolutionary rumblings in the Russian Empire, Kschessinsky, along with a few of his colleagues, was fired from the theatre, only to be re-hired in 1914. Kschessinsky was one of the few artists to remain in Russia after the revolution. He continued to work as both a dancer and a teacher for many years.

The moment when… well, you know. And before anyone of you ask – yes, I love Onegin. And I know it probably makes me a horrible person. I just don’t fucking care.
