la-fille-du-pharaon

Maria Alexandrova dancing the role of the slave girl Ramze, May 2000.

La Fille du Pharaon is really Alexandrova’s ballet. She brings to it complete understanding of the style, and a fascinating range of emotional temperature. This is not to say she has a wildly emotive face, but she can be warm, gracious, porcelain in the sun, or go cold as champagne flutes in the freezer, bringing the feeling of frost to the stage.
