An interview with Uliana Lopatkina - part 1 of 2 (in Russian)
Uliana Lopatkina, Prima Ballerina of Mariinsky Ballet, is a true artist. She is elegant in both appearance and thought. She is not only an exquisite dancer, but also one of the most thoughtful, intelligent, soulful and seeking human beings I know. In this program, we talk about a fascinating dilemma faced by every artist: how does your art affect you? For example, in portraying Evil, how do you protect yourself from its influence in your life? And what is ballet, anyway? What is its purpose in our lives? Yes, we go deep. Original air date: April 22, 2015.
