Maria Khoreva joined the Mariinsky Ballet in September 2018 after graduating from the Vaganova Academy. In the summer before the start of her first season with the company, she debuted as Terpsichore in George Balanchine's Apollo.
In the fall of 2018, Maria Khoreva debuted in Le Corsaire as one of the trio of Odalisques and as one of the Prince's friends in the Swan Lake pas de trois. In October, she danced the title role in Paquita, a rarity for such a recent graduate, and at the end of the month was promoted from the corps de ballet to first soloist, a rank just one step below principal dancer.
