Anton Bogov (RU)
Anton Bogov was born in Omsk (today’s Russian Federation). He completed his ballet training in Almaty (Kazakhstan). His prolific talent and stamina were quite notable already in his earliest performances for various school productions and occasional theatre projects. In 1993, just after attending an international ballet competition in Moscow, he became soloist at the International Ballet Theatre Ochi in Nagoya, where he still occasionally performs as a guest soloist. The following year (1994), he joined the Maribor Ballet Ensemble, where he gradually became soloist after two years. In 1998, he became a Slovenian citizen. As a first soloist and principal dancer of the Maribor Ballet, he regularly performs with other ensembles as well, for example with Ljubljana Ballet Ensemble (The Nutcracker, Giselle, Anna Karenina, Swan Lake), Graz Ballet (La Sylphide, La fille mal gardée), Croatian National Ballet in Zagreb (The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, Don Quixote, La Bayadère, Carmen) and the Czech National Ballet in Prague (Swan Lake). Anton often performs at several international ballet festivals, e.g. in Osaka (Don Quixote, La Sylphide), Bregenz (Don Quixote), he toured also with the Romanian National Ballet in various European countries, and attended the Kishinev Festival in Moldavia. At the Toulon Ballet, he danced two principal roles in The Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia. In Atlanta (federal state Georgia in the USA) he toured with Tchaikovsky’s ballet Swan Lake; he is a well-sought after partner and participant of ballet gala events (such as is Roberto Bollé and Friends), mostly in Italy (Bologna, Genova and Parma). In addition to his classical ballet training and performance, he often participated in neoclassical and contemporary choreographies (Balanchine, MacMillan, Massine, Clug, Turcu, etc.). Between 1995 and 2004, he won several prizes at international ballet competitions in Seoul, Ljubljana, Budapest, Varna, Nagoya, Luxemburg and Shanghai. In 2006, Anton was named as the most distinguished artist of the city of Maribor by journalists at the review Mariborčan. In the following year (2007), he won the Prešeren Foundation Award. Among Anton’s last performances, one should point out the title role from Prokofiev’s neoclassical ballet Romeo and Juliet (choreographed by Valentina Turcu), the role of Don José from Shchedrin’s Carmen (also choreographed by V. Turcu), as well as his rendered interpretations of Colin (La fille mal gardée), Viscount Valmont (Dangerous Liaisons), Prince Siegfried (Swan Lake), etc. His latest compelling creation, imbued with mature artistry and style, is the title role in Valentina Turcu’s narrative ballet Yevgeny Onegin.Anton Bogov was born in Omsk (today’s Russian Federation), whilst he completed his ballet training in Almaty (Kazakhstan).
