Bolshoi in the US

8 posts in this topic

An interview by Maya Krylova (Nezavisimaya gazeta) with Mr. Anatoly Iksanov will be published tomorrow (http://www.ng.ru/culture/2003-12-25/6_iksanov.html). Besides the tours to Paris and London there will be a tour to the US in the fall 2004 organized by ICM company. They ask to bring Swan Lake by Grigorovitch, The Bright Stream by Ratmansky and Romeo & Juliet by Poklitaru. I wonder why Americans do not want to watch Pharaoh’s Daughter?

Thanks, Marc! Odd that they're skipping the Kennedy Center. We were supposed to get them every year for ten years (same as the Kirov).

I wonder why Americans do not want to watch Pharaoh’s Daughter?

Who says we don't want to see it? I certainly do.

But, they are skipping the entire east coast of the US, so.....

I am surprised about the Kennedy Center, however....

Any news on casting for the fall U.S. tour? I'm specifically interested in the Boston performances.

Thanks,

Susan

- Mikhail, you are joking! I wouldn't mind seeing it again. But I can tell you this much - I don't know of a single ballet goer who graves to see the latest and greatest R&J :-(
