Vladimir Malakhov and Diana Vishneva rehearsing and performing “Giselle”.
Vladimir and Diana are each others favourite partners. The two met by chance in 1995, during an international gala in Toronto. Malakhov was supposed to dance “Le Spectre de la rose”, but he didn’t have a partner. The then-seventeen year old Diana was offered a chance to be partnered by him. They have been inseparable ever since.
Malakhov on Diana: “Diana, for me, is a singular story. There isn’t and will never be another ballerina like her. She has been my partner for the duration of her entire career.”
Diana on Malakhov: “I adore dancing with Malakhov. We are like two halves of a whole”.
