Bolshoi on Tour 04-05
Posted 23 September 2004 - 08:06 AM
I have tickets for the Chicago 11/11 and 11/12 performances
and am delighted to see Alexandrova and Filin for the 11th DQ.
I can only hope there are no principal changes for that performance.

I'm also surprised that neither Zakharova nor Lunkina is on the roster. Perhaps Zakharova is guesting elsewhere and Lunkina is not quite back in shape following maternity leave?
No, it's not as if part of the 'A-list' company is being kept back home. This is a full-scale major tour, with the bulk of the company in the USA. No major ballets are scheduled at the Bolshoi during October. Instead, it's the usual 'Sylphides' and 'Chippolinos' that require much smaller corps, with the leading roles danced by guests from other Moscow troupes.

All casting is subject to change.
This last line makes me chuckle. Judging by the history of past Bolshoi (or Kirov-Mariinsky) tours, I would venture to guess that some casting is GUARANTEED to change. Hopefully not. This is a fine line-up of stars.

"7 Nov Raymonda-mat Stepanenko-Filin-Belogolovtsev" -- worth a trip from Seattle to Berkeley?
(I'm going to see the company perform Romeo and Juliet and Don Q in Seattle, and Stepanenko-Klevtsov are the intended cast in the latter.)

When part of the company will be in USA, in Moscow the Bolshoi will show “small” ballets, but there will not be any guests from other Moscow troupes as far as I know. Whom do you mean? The only guest will be POB’s etoile Laurent Hilaire who will dance Giselle with Zakharova.

A similar thing occurred last August in St Petersburg, when some friends of mine felt robbed when they paid to see the Kirov-Mariinsky in their home theater and ended up seeing the Yuri Grigorovich troupe -- which isn't even a Petersburg company -- instead.

I look forward to reading your report!
hockeyfan228 - I am going to see that cast in Boston 10/6 - I'll let you know what I think when I get back to NY the following week

The same with Grigorovitch Ballet in Mariinsky Theatre – the tour of Grigorovitch Company was advertised long before it take place, so it was clear what company will dance.
In the case of foreigners who cannot understand Russian the mistakes is quite possible of course.

I've asked the good folks at the Wang Center's press office for an update, which I'll share with you, if I get it before traveling to Boston.
