Royal Opera House Summer guide
It's always amazing to see 2 fantastic primas in one ballet. Svetlana Zakharova performed Nikiya's role while Maria Alexandrova amazed as Princess Gamzatti. Unfortunately during this performance accident happen and Maria Alexandrova got injured on stage. We wish her very quick recovery and hope to see her in London soon again !
