This is the video of Alina Somova’s Nikiya that I was talking about
For those who haven’t seen it, she is sad because she is made to dance at the engagement celebration of Solor, the man she loves, and his new fiance, Gamzatti (who is a total bitch, mind you). She becomes happy when she receives the basket of flowers because she is told that they are from Solor, though they are actually from Gamzatti and contain a poisonous snake. She is bitten and begins to die and realizes the trick that has been done, blaming Gamzatti. At the end when she drops the antidote, it was because she saw Solor leaving with Gamzatti and decided she would rather die.
Her expressions are so perfect in this, I just want to cry over the entire video ahh
is no one going to mention the guy in a bathrobe on stage right. just watching her
