Maria Khoreva (Dancer)

Khoreva was born on 3 July 2000 in St. Petersburg, Russia. Before being accepted to the Vaganova Ballet Academy, Khoreva practised rhythmic gymnastics.

While at the Vaganova Academy, Khoreva was taught by celebrated professor Lyudmila Kovaleva, who is known for producing such talents as Diana Vishneva and Olga Smirnova. In her final year of study, Khoreva performed the following roles with the Academy both domestically and internationally:

  • Dance of the Hours: Night
  • Suite en Blanc: Flute, Adagio
  • Le Réveil de Flore: Flora, Aurora
  • The Fairy Doll: Fairy Doll
  • The Nutcracker: Masha

Khoreva joined the Mariinsky Ballet in 2018 after graduating from the Vaganova Academy. In the summer before the start of her first season with the company, she debuted as Terpsichore in George Balanchine's Apollo alongside Mariinsky principal Xander Parish in the title role and fellow 2018 Vaganova graduates Daria Ionova and Anastasia Nyukina dancing Calliope and Polyhymnia respectively. The four have performed the ballet together in St. Petersburg, Spoleto, and New York City.

In the fall of 2018, Khoreva debuted in Le Corsaire as one of the trio of Odalisques, again alongside Ionova and Nyukina, and as one of the Prince's friends in the Swan Lake pas de trois. In October, she danced the title role in Paquita, a rarity for such a recent graduate, and at the end of the month was promoted from the corps de ballet to the first soloist, a rank just one step below principal dancer.

Her repertoire with the Mariinsky thus far includes:

  • The Nutcracker: Masha
  • Paquita: Paquita
  • Sleeping Beauty: Princess Aurora (Rose Adagio)
  • Apollo: Terpsichore
  • Don Quixote: Queen of the Dryads
  • Jewels: Diamonds
  • Le Corsaire: Medora, Trio of Odalisques
  • Swan Lake: Friends of the Prince

Khoreva is coached by former Mariinsky soloist Elvira Tarasova.
