"We have three different casts in Costa Mesa," Fateev said. "Opening night we have a very young girl. Her name is Oxana Skorik. She's very talented. She's an absolutely beautiful swan. If you think about the Queen of the Swans, she is absolutely the right person for doing that ballet, because she has beautiful long lines, long legs, long arms, a very long neck, and she looks like a real swan.
"For the third cast, we have a very nice, beautiful dancer, Danila Korsuntsev," he continued. "He looks like a prince. He's a very nice prince. He's absolutely perfect for the prince in 'Swan Lake,' in 'Sleeping Beauty' or in 'The Nutcracker.'"
The 66-piece Mariinsky Orchestra conducted by Mikhail Agrest will accompany the dance performance.
"Of course, the orchestra is well trained, because the head of the Mariinsky Theatre is Maestro Gergiev and he is one of the great musicians of the world and he cares about music," Morr said. "There is no company in the world like the Mariinsky."
