Mariinsky star Uliana Lopatkina will visit Yale University for a residency October 13–15. While at Yale, Lopatkina will participate in a variety of events, including a lecture demonstration, question and answer sessions, a conversation with Emily Coates (the director of dance at Yale) and a culminating performance.
The unique performance is designed as a tribute to Anna Pavlova, Galina Ulanova and Maya Plietskaya—three Russian ballet legends. Lopatkina will perform excerpts from each ballerina’s repertoire, including the Seventh Waltz from Chopiniana and “Dying Swan,” among other highlights.
