Prima Ballerinas Olga Pavlova and Marina Goshko and Principal Dancers Yevgeni Anfinogenov and Andrey Prikhodko will star in ARTS San Antonios presentation of Tchaikovskys The Nutcracker. Set to Peter Ilych Tchaikovskys beloved score, The Nutcracker is, by far, the most widely attended ballet in America. Russian Prima Ballerina Olga Pavlova is hailed as The New Pavlova by Dance magazine, referring to the famous Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova. Born in Moscow, Russia, Olga Pavlova graduated from the famed Bolshoi Ballet Academy. Marina Goshko, Russian native, graduated from the Buryat State Choreographic School. She became a soloist with the Moscow Classical Ballet. This production of The Nutcracker is choreographed and directed by founder of Mejia Ballet International, Paul Mejia, a well-recognized name in ballet. Mejia is a former principal dancer under George Balanchine at New York City Ballet. He danced principal roles in many Balanchine ballets. Mejias production of The Nutcracker continues the holiday tradition of this very popular ballet.
