But I was genuinely shocked when Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev took the stage. They were the only ones who in addition to amazing technique (a level higher than other dancers) had what is called in Russian - KURAZH! Oh God, they were dancing as if they is no gravity, no routine, no stress whatsoever. They were having fun!!! Which is pretty impressive since they are pretty young and joined Bolshoi only about 4 years ago. They received a standing ovation, and sometimes I could not hear the music because the audience would burst into applause during their performance. I could not help but say, "Viva Bolshoi!" In a second, a group of Italians sitting behind me where shouting VIVA BOLSHOI!
