2 principal Mariinsky Ballet dancers to miss Segerstrom engagement

Two of the Mariinsky Ballet’s principal ballerinas, Viktoria Tereshkina and Alina Somova, have canceled their upcoming appearances in “Swan Lake” at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts.

Both women withdrew from the performances because they are pregnant, center officials confirmed Monday.

They had been scheduled to dance the lead ballerina roles of Odette-Odile on Oct. 2 and 5 (Tereshkina) and Oct. 3 and 6 (Somova).
