In 2017, he was awarded the “Soul of Dance” Prize by the Ballet magazine. On May 23rd, the two dancers will perform Jeanne and Philippe in The Flame of Paris.

On May 19th, Conrad and Medora will be played by Vladislav Lantratov and Anna Nikulina. Vladislav joined the Bolshoi Ballet following his graduation in 2006 from the Moscow Choreographic Academy. In 2015, he received "The Golden Mask" National Theatre Award. Anna tours intensively in Russia and abroad. In 2004, she was a recipient of the “Triumph” Youth Grant Prize. She will also dance Adeline, a newly-added character in The Flames of Paris on May 23rd and 25th, while Vladislav takes his part as Philippe on May 22nd and 24th, on which Kristina Kretova plays Jeanne, who was named “Miss Virtuosity” at the “Dance Open” Festival in 2014.

She moved to the Stanislavsky Ballet in 2014, and in 2015 was invited to join the Bolshoi Ballet as Soloist. In 2014 she received the Taglioni Award nominated as “The Best Young Ballerina”.
