Ballet critics and the public all over the world fully appreciated the “magnificent flights by the principal dancer of Astana Opera, which, in the most incredible jumps, keeps the exemplary academicism of shape”. The part of Zobeida will be danced by a young soloist of the theater, a sophisticated oriental beauty, Anastasia Zaklinskaya.
