Vyacheslav Lopatin

Principal at the Bolshoi Theatre

Critics call him «Almighty Dancer». Apart from possesing a huge technical potential, Vyacheslav is also a wonderful character artist who is capable of performing the most complicated, ambiguous and diverse parties. At the premiere of A Hero of Our Time, one of the biggest recent projects of Bolshoi, his Old Woman/Yanko character was named among the most interesting roles, yet he performs brilliantly Pechorin also. Among other roles: James (La Sylphide, National Golden Mask Awards personal Winner), Frantz (Coppelia), Basilio (Don Quixote), Monologue (Nureev), and many others.
