By chance audiences in Amsterdam's Royal Carré Theater were able to attend two debuts in one of the Bolshoi Ballet's most legendary roles, Yuri Grigorovich's “Spartacus.” First came Ivan Vasiliev, the company's 19-year old wunderkind, who had so far only danced the 1st Act in a special performance in Moscow a few weeks earlier, followed the next day by the much lesser known corps de ballet artist Egor Khromushin, whose debut had to be advanced because of an injured Dmitry Belogolovtsev.
