 Anna Antonicheva


Born:   October 8, 1973

Prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theatre, People's Artist of Russia (2008)

      

"At first sight the ballerina strikes with extraordinary, fantastic beauty of her legs and figure, but she never relies on her innate abilities only - being extremely self-disciplined, she always takes hundred percent efforts. Antonicheva is   a colossal hard worker with great willpower. She is a rare person, who needs to be refrained rather than impelled", - renowned prima and ballet teacher Yekaterina Maximova said about her student Anna.
Anna Antonicheva was born and grew up in Baku. She studied at the Baku Choreographic School, and then having won a gold medal and the Audience Award at the Transcaucasian Ballet Competition (1988) held in Baku, was admitted to the Moscow Ballet School. She graduated in 1991 and got employed to the corps de ballet of the Bolshoi Theater.
Anna Antonicheva danced her first leading role, that o Shirin in "The Legend of Love" by A. Melikov at the beginning of the fifth season of her  work at the Bolshoi Theatre.

The troupe's second leader at that time, Paul Mejia invited her to perform in the ballets staged by him: "Baudelaire" (her first "non-academic" experience, according to Anna), "Hamlet" and "Romeo and Juliet" to music by Tchaikovsky.
