Viktoria Krasnokutskaya, who graduated from the Vaganova Academy in 2009, brought delicacy and freshness to the Lucine Grahn role in the Pas de Quatre, with a final entrechats series so light and joyous it prompted applause from the audience; her round face and blue eyes project far into the auditorium, and the hint of mystery in her expression works like a charm in Romantic roles.
