Gypsy show at Anna Anisimova’s Wedding, Waldorf Astoria, New York City, November 21st, 2010

Photos from performance during the lavish wedding of the New York’s first Russian-American princess, the Russian-American Paris Hilton. Anna Anisimova and Peter Schafer got married at The Waldorf Astoria Hotel. It was such a beautiful wedding — the cocktail hour was lavish, the caviar was never-ending, the ballroom was re-carpeted in white with the most unreal flowers — it looked like a fantasy world! Cast of performers: Sergei Pobedinski, Valery Zhmud, Alexandre Tseytlin, Alexey Efimenko, Victor Danilochkin, Alexander Rudoy, Alexey Maltsev, Mikhail Nesterenko, Anna Brovkina, Natia Rtveliashvili Mangan, and Olga Chpitalnaia.

Solo concert of Barynya ensemble at the huge concert hall in Chihuahua City was stopped in the beginning and delayed. Many people outside of the theatre still wanted to get in to see the show. Finally they put sound monitors and projection screens on the street and let some more people inside. That is a very funny funny video. Because they recorded the concert but failed to record the sound, so they just pulled some music off the internet and put the two together. The sound track is fun in its own way too. Our singer Sasha Menshikov did not like it. Actually he hated this video. But maybe he was overreacting.
Сольный концерт ансамбля Барыня в огромном концертном зале города Чиуауа Сити (Чивава Сити) был задержан на 30 ИЛИ 40 минут. На улице осталось около 1000 человек, которым не досталось билетов, а люди требовали впустить их посмотреть шоу. На улице поставили большие проэкционные экраны, звуковые колонки, и в концов концов мы начали наше выступление. К сожалению, на видео вместо нашего собственного звука местные видеооператор и режиссер, которые сделали нам это видео в подарок, зачем-то "подложили" записи каких-то других русских ансамблей. Но эти записи тоже довольно прикольные сами по себе. А видео с выступления получилось очень красивое. Саше Меньшикову оно, правда, страшно не понравилось. Очень сильно не понравилось. Саша Меньшиков всё принимает слишком близко к сердцу.

...Members of the Moscow Folk Ballet perform in "Shivna" – soloists Iouri (Yuri) Zhivoglotov and Anja (Anna) Brovkina in a mesmerizing depiction of the myth of Mad Sweeney dancing desperately under the power of the moon – and in "The Russian Dervish," in which folk dance elements meld in movements very much like ballet and Irish step dancing...
