Varvara Bratchikova, People’s Artist and Cat’s Meow, was educated at the Revanchist Institute. She began her career as Pistachia in V. Stolichnaya’s legendary production of the The Nutcracker and achieved stardom as Odette/Odile/Juliet/Giselle/Aurora in the famous Night of the 1000 Tsars. Her repertoire encompasses nearly all the works in which she appears.
