The biggest applause and shouts of "bravo" endured by the prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre Svetlana Zakharova and her partner, the American dancer David Hallberg, first performed the role of the prince in "Sleeping Beauty" as a soloist of the Bolshoi Ballet.

Hallberg had previously confessed that she loves to dance princes and feels in this manner is quite natural. The appearance of an elegant, easy, rapid dancer immediately aroused admiration and applause of the audience. A Zakharov, a world-famous ballerina, has received perhaps more than any such epithets as "awesome, sweet, magical, elegant, first-class."

"The brilliant diva — so named Svetlana Zakharova director Yuri Lyubimov. — The impression I have from the show is very good, wonderful choreography, the careful work of a great master Yuri Grigorovich, which has a rare gift. We have long been familiar with Yuri Nikolayevich, he came to see me in the theater. Of course, I would very much like him to put the "Polovtsian Dances" in the opera "Prince Igor", which I will put on the stage. But while I was still with him did not mention it. As for Basil Sinai, then we had already worked together in the theaters of Europe. "
