The plans of the Bolshoi theatre for the following season ballets by such renowned contemporary choreographers as Alexei Ratmansky, Jiri Kylian and John Neumeier with his ballet «Anna Karenina».

«I worked with an outstanding choreographer John Neumeier, when introduced in «the Lady with camellias». I went then to him, and it was a very interesting rehearsal. Now I’m dancing Arman, and this is one of my favorite parties. I dream that in Neumeier’s ballet «Anna Karenina», which is scheduled for next season, too, will dance. I really want this,» said Rodkin.

The dancer admitted that although he was not able to meet with Jiri Kilian, but he worked with his assistant on the show «Symphony of Psalms», which is now in the repertoire.
