An interview by Maya Krylova (Nezavisimaya gazeta) with Mr. Anatoly Iksanov will be published tomorrow (http://www.ng.ru/cul.../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?

Has there been any update on the Bolshoi's planned U.S. tour? I hope they stop in NY!

The Chicago performances don't seem to be finalised yet, as there is a chance Chicago might get Romeo and Juliet on Nov 12 and 13. More details nearer to the time.

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 :-(
