Kirov North American tour Oct 2003

7 posts in this topic

Kirov Ballet and Orchestra will perform 2 programs (including complete Jewels) in Berkeley Zellerbach Hall in October 2003. This is part their North American tour this fall.

Also, La Bayadere in LA. Don't have the complete schedule, but they are also scheduled for Wash DC.

Saw the Bayadere in NY last year - the most glorious Kingdom of the Shades imaginable. If ever one wanted an example of what makes Petipa special, and what makes Russian dancers something else - this will do it...
