ABT will end its Met season on 7/16/05 while Bolshoi will end its OCPAC run on 7/17/05, so Bolshoi will most likely start its Met season a few days later.

Although I don't mind the usual suspects like SL or DQ, I'd like them to bring something that's seldom performed in the West. I hope they'll bring Pharaoh's Daughter and I'd like to see their Beauty.

What'd you like them to bring? May be they'll listen and grant our wishes. :rolleyes:

Were standing rooms available when Maryinski was here?

Not in a sense there's a press release. I got this from a friend in the Times so it's pretty accurate. Lincoln Center won't release any information regarding the 2005 Lincoln Center Festival until early next year. There's special 'New Season' section in the Sunday Times usually published the first weekend after the Labor Day long weekend, it'll list all the events in the up coming season: opera, dance, theater, B'way, museum exhibits, architecture, TV, movies....etc. If it's published in the Times, it's pretty much semi-official.

So, it hasn't been published. I'm only questioning because several years ago everybody was saying the Royal Ballet was going to be at Lincoln Center in 2002, then 2003. Finally, it was 2004. The same thing with the Kirov - they were supposed to come 2001, but it was really the next year. When the rumors about the Royal were circulating, everybody said this year (2004) was supposed to be the Bolshoi. That's why I'm questioning.

Anyway, Mikhail said the Bolshoi is touring the US in the fall (put together by ICM). They are doing Don Q. and Raymonda.

Not to add to the speculation too much, but evidence surrounding the Bolshoi's currently anounced summer engagement for 2005 does make it certainly look likely that the Bolshoi might be headed for the Metropolitan Opera House for the summer. They have an anounced engagement in Orange County in July, and after touring the US extensively in the fall, it would seem unlikely for them to return solely for Orange County next summer. So it must be Orange County plus something - and the Met certainly seems like a likely choice. But I guess we'll have to assume nothing until an anouncement comes...

I read in a Tsiskaridze interview that Bolshoi could take "Queen of Spades" of Roland Petit to allow to him to dance in next fall.

I would be careful about planning to see the Bolshoi at the Met w/ SR tickets. But, it is the Bolshoi!!!!!!! I work at the Met. As soon as I find out how the advanced ticket sales are going, I will let everyone know. Advanced ticket sales were very poor for the Ashton at the Met. The Ushers were not notified about the no standing rm. policy until opening nite on 7/6!!!!!! I will now start asking around earlier in 2005- since this was the 1st time in my time there, that no SR was sold for a Ballet
run. Of course, my memory could be faulty!!!!!!!! :blink: :wacko: :blushing:

Well, currently they're scheduled to perform their new Romeo and Juliet in Seattle October 27-28 (following up with Don Q for three nights). The dates seem firm right now, but it's certainly possible that the programming could change.

I realized I forgot something in my above post: The Bolshoi are doing Don Q. and Raymonda in Boston.

I'd love to see them in NY next summer, but let's hope they don't bring R&J!

Do you mean the latest version? Don't forget they currently have three Romeo and Juliet's at their disposal.
