For those who aren't familiar with the company, it's directed by a former Kirov principal Eldar Aliev -- hope I spelled that right! -- and they've done several rarely performed ballets, including "The Creation of the World," a ballet done in the Soviet Union for Baryshnikov in the 1970s. It's a company I haven't seen yet, and would like to, so I hope there will be many reports here!

Carnival of Venice
Diana & Acteon
And I believe that will be the program and then Carmen follows.

Irina Komarenko (a graduate of Alma Ata) did the 'Carnival' and 'Diana'. She is a dancer who appears to make up for her shorter stature with large exaggerated movements and a tendency to mug. At times she seemed to be a parody of a ballerina. She was more successful in the "Diana'---she toned down a bit but she should know that she doesn't have to smile so broadly all the time. Ogulcan Borova as Actaeon did a step in the coda I would have a hard time naming. With his skirt encircling his body he threw himself into a shape that resembled a barrell and opened into a grand jete; and repeated it. A largely Russian crowd loved it.
Chieko Oiwa was most appealing in 'Corsaire' PDD. The opening tempo of the PDD was slower that what I have come to expect and Miss Oiwa (in a calf-length chiffon tunic) set a beautiful serene mood.
There were short bios of all the dancers in the program, but I searched in vain for information on the one dancer who most impressed me; Karen Scalzitti-Kennedy---a young Plisetskaya if there ever was one. She performed Messerer's 'Melody' and Alonso's 'Carmen'. This girl deserves a first rate choreographer, and while watching her Carmen I could not help thinking---she is a natural for 'Tzigane'.

Those jumps that Ogulcan Borova was exectuing across the floor are called 540's. Meaning he does a revolution and a half in the air.
Hope that clears some things up!
