The fairytale story opened in balletic style. However, when the action moved to the forest it achieved greater impact by switching from sedate to sprightly skating as two enchanting, dancing ducks and seven woodcutters added another dimension to the entertainment.
The shining star was Olga Pershankova in the title role surrounded by two dozen highly-talented skaters. But this was not just a display of superlative skating, for the cast also featured Olympic rhythmic gymnastic gold medallist Ioulia Barsukova plus breathtaking aerial ballet.
