Feeling like I have been out of the ballet world for a while… I didn’t even know about it!
Queen Kristinka conquers the Mariinsky, guys! (even though just as a first soloist)

'Just as a first soloist'? What's the problem with being a first soloist? I'm so happy for Kristina that she was hired as a first soloist and not as second or coryphée. Being a first soloist in a company like Mariinsky is a huge accomplishment and Kristina is still very young. She's definitely principal material and will be promoted when she's ready. 

There’s no problem with being a first soloist. It’s just that she was a prima both with Stanislavsky and Mikhailovsky and I fear they won’t promote her even though she’ll deserve it (in other words; I hope she won’t end up like Olesya Novikova and other talented girls at the Mariinsky). But yeah you’re right, at least they didn’t put her in the coryphee category, that would’ve been such a shame! Anyway I am happy for her too, being hired by the Mariinsky surely is a great accomplishment :)
