Refined, with perfect lines, with a feeling of pose- this is Alina Somova. The ballerina performs the leading parties not only in the Mariinsky Theater, where the spectators come especially to "Somov". They leave the poetic unfolded impressions of the performances of the beloved dancer. About "Swan Lake" with Somova create poems in prose, where they say that the heart of the play is a bird-girl, doomed and quivering, tender Odette. She is expressive. All of her ballet forms - a long neck, slender legs, light hands - create an image of a fascinated bird with wings, whose fingertips are feathers. But now, leaning against the prince's chest, bending his head to his shoulder, she turns into a girl. Becoming an Odile, she manifests other facets - temptation and cunning. The wings are no longer tender. It's the wings of a bird of prey. However, the charm remains, for in Odile there is no malice and meanness. The finale of the ballet, going to the sounds of a harp and a violin, makes the hall stop and watch the swans swim under the light of the moon.
