“Kitri was Maria Alexandrova… She’s an all-rounder: The company’s 2011-12 broadcasts showed her in the dramatic title role of “Esmeralda,” as the heroine of “Swan Lake” and as the Ballerina in Alexei Ratmansky’s comedy “The Bright Stream.” Like no other Kitri I’ve seen, she seems to laugh her way through the whole ballet. This isn’t just surface ha-ha; there’s also an enchanting whiff of self-amusement about her playing, as well as a strong dose of eager bravado. At first, her characterization seems brassy, but once she starts to show her naughty grin, her immense good humor carries the day. Her great dance moment on Tuesday came at the start of her Act III solo variation. She entered in an amazingly rapid tacquetée (stage-biting) run on point, her sparkling footwork perfectly matching the twinkling scales of the harp.”
