Konstantin Tkachuk in Saint Petersburg. By Alexei Kostromin

Saint Peterburg is a place that breathes with ballet. It can remain very “distant”, “official” and even “cold”. But if it opens up, you will discover priceless treasures that can surprise, strike and inspire.

Today we are publishing a series of photos of a talented Russia dancer Konstantin Tkachuk of Mikhailovsky Theatre made by a great portraitist Alexei Kostromin.

This time Alexey made us see the character and the magic of Saint Petersburg through the eyes and the moves of this wonderful and very expressive dancer.

The city is no more a location, it’s a protagonist….

Enjoy!
