Madame Galina Korsakova

From stints entertaining the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, a private performance for Her Majesty The Queen, the Olivier Award winning show C'est Barbican, two series on Channel 4, Ruby Wax Does The Business on the BBC, a Channel 4 pilot at the request of Janet Street-Porter...

Madame Galina wows audiences wherever she goes with her extraordinary dancing and acid tongue. She has performed sell out shows at the Edinburgh Festival and nearly every major arts festival in Europe and has recently entertained the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan giving her the title ‘New Forces Sweetheart'.

Press Quotes

"A rare and perfect synthesis of art and larkiness...waspish, retro-Noel Cowardish wit laced with Nancy Mitford...the audience howled with laughter, stamped and cheered".  The Times, July 2004.

 "A fond farewell to the spectacular Madame Galina, who held us in thrall every night this week...eccentric and entertaining...More! More!" Chistopher Matthew, Daily Mail TV Critic

"An excrutiatingly funny cod ballet masterclass".  Swedish Daily Journal

 "It doesn't come any better than this" Ruby Wax

 "Bonkers diva brilliance...his jokes are spot on and the dancing not nearly as bad as you might expect from a flat-footed lard arse...he is essential viewing"  Evening Standard July 2004                                                                      

"Madame Galina is sensational...brilliantly written and fantastically funny".  ***** The Stage

"Amazing...the body movements of Natalia Makarova, the body type of Johnny Vegas...Madame Galina is a unique and fabulous creation". **** The Scotsman

"With aplomb in everything she does, the autocratic chubette serves up cunning double ententes and multiple pirouettes while chivvying the audience into hilarious onstage participation...More bolshy than Bolshoi!"  The Herald
