Her classical ballet roles include Odeta in “Swan Lake”, Princess Aurora in “The Enchanted Princess”, Mary in “Bahchisara Fountain”, Niki in “Bajadera”, Gulnar in “Corsair”, Maria in “Nutcracker”. Admirers of modern and contemporary ballet have recognized Victoria Jansone’s performance in such roles as Carmen, Juliet, Anna Karenina, Guna in “Silver Liquid”, Girl in “Holy Spring” and many others.

Aivars Leimanis, the artistic director of the Latvian National Ballet, pointed out: “Victoria has always been strong in both classical and contemporary repertoire. The images she has created have always been emotionally nuanced, for which she wants to say thank you.

Thank you also for the fact that she shares her experience and will continue to share it with ballet soloists, with whom she started working very successfully in parallel with her ballerina career. ”

Ballet soloist Annija Kopštāle emphasized: “Victoria is a unique, charismatic, smart, beautiful ballerina. Each of her stage heroes surprises with diversity, femininity, elegance, beauty, plasticity, emotionality, uniqueness – Anna Karenina, Carmen, Juliet, Odette, Antonio. The love of the scene and art radiates from Victoria. Love of work and respect for it both as a ballerina and as a teacher. She inspires! I am proud that Victoria is my tutor! ”

Leading ballet soloist Raimonds Martinovs noted: “Victoria and I danced together for the first time in Krzysztof Pastor’s” Holy Spring “. I want to say a big thank you to Victoria for every role we have danced and survived on stage. It is not always the case that you are not confronted by a person you know outside the stage, but by an image. With Victoria, it always is. This is her best feature. Victoria takes with her what no diploma will replace – it’s an experience. The experience she will pass on to her colleagues, the younger generation and also to her daughter, who has started studying at the Riga Ballet School.

One phase is over and a new one is opening. ”

Ballet soloist Jūlija Brauere added: “We have been working with Victoria as a tutor for five years now, she brought me into the world of ballet, and I am her first“ ballet child ”. Victoria associates me with tenderness. Her hand movements and plasticity inspire me. Each of her roles is thought out, she has a soul, she tells her story. ”

Composer Juris Karlsons and choreographer Aivars Leimanis have created the ballet “Antonija # Silmači”, inspired by Rūdolfs Blaumanis ‘play “Tailors’ Days in Silmači”.
