Citing its hectic touring and rehearsal schedule, the Maryinsky/Kirov Ballet has withdrawn from this year's Golden Mask festival.

Truth is that the ballet company is unable to compete at this moment for the reasons given. And, frankly, if you realize that they would have entered the competition with “Etudes”, “Les Noces” and “Rite of Spring”, ballets they can’t even do properly, they wouldn’t have stood a chance (unless the other competitors were even worse, of course).
The Mariinsky policy of relentless touring and simultaneous expansion of the repertory is now clearly turning against itself.

One reason for the cancellation might be that Fadeyev and Sarafanov are both indisposed at the moment. They have done almost every Etudes. Merkuriev did one performance, I think.

Yes, and it seems Zakharova who was their main ballerina for "Etudes" left for another company as well. :grinning:
