Her er nogle anmeldelserne St. Peterburg Ballet Theatres turne i 2018
Kolesnikova sports a stunning classical technique alone worth the price of a ticket. She has the dramatic power of a Maggie Smith or Judi Dench, effortlessly convincing a full house of devoted balletomanes that white is black and vice versa.

Prima Ballerina Assoluta Irina Kolesnikova is a force to recon with - there are few ballerinas with such technique and control. Her precision is exemplary.
Johnny Fox, Londonist 24 August 2018
Irina Kolesnikova, who is superb in this dual role, is technically flawless, expressing complex and layered emotions and states of mind through every fibre of her body, gesture and facial expression. Her serious, unaffected expression conveys the virginal Odette’s moral purity and her expression of the moment when her fear of Siegfried and his crossbow suddenly turns into love at first sight is unforgettable. With a sharp turn of the head she looks him straight in the eye with shocked recognition of their mutual destiny. It's a fast-moving and sumptuous spectacle, but seeing Kolesnikova is the unforgettable pleasure. Charismatic Kolesnikova delivers an unforgettable performance in Swan Lake.
