Nina Ananiashvili (published 2013)

Description

As the only interviewee from the 1990s who is still dancing, Ananiashvili discusses the evolution of her signature role of Giselle and how life changes, including her new role as director, different dance partners, and new repertories, instinctively inform her interpretation. Despite the changes to her interpretation, she also mentions the critical response to her performance as reminiscent of the classic ballerinas'.

Biographical note:

Ananiashvili is a Georgian ballerina who started out in figure skating. She entered the Bolshoi in 1981 and later joined the American Ballet Theatre and Houston Ballet both with the rank of prima ballerina. She traveled in multiple dancing troupes including her own. Memorable performances include Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet and Coppelia. She is now the artistic director for the National Ballet Ensemble of Georgia.
