Elagina-ustimov-nutcracker Sasha Elagina and Anatoli Ustimov in Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker. West Coast Principal Artists 

Alexandra Elagina made her North American debut as Masha in Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in 2010 to critical acclaim: “Alexandra Elagina exuded the essence of delicacy.” Charleston Today and “Elagina finds world enough and time to raise one leg slowly behind her until it’s the height of her shoulder. 

"This slow ascent of one leg, while the music swells, seems brimful with feeling.” Chief Dance Critic, New York Times. She hails from Kazan, the sixth largest city in Russia and called the "third capital of Russia." Elagina graduated from the Kazan Ballet Academy in 2006. Immediately after graduation she was accepted as a soloist to Tatar's Jalil State Academic Theater of Opera and Ballet which is considered to be home to one of the best troupes performing in Russia. Elagina has toured France, Germany, Switzerland, and Holland. Moscow Ballet is proud to premiere this talented, newcomer to the international ballet scene.
