Hi,

I am hoping someone familiar with the Bolshoi tours can answer these somewhat obscure questions for me. They are in regards to the current (American) tour, more specifically their performances in California at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.

First, I'd like to know if Nicolai Fedeyechev is coaching on this tour, or otherwise present in the company.

Second, I am wondering if anyone knows if conductor Alexander Kopylov is conducting the orchestra for any of the performances? If so, which performances?

I've tried getting this info directly from the folks at bolshoi.ru, but I have never gotten a reply (even to notices about a few factual errors on their site).

Any help/info is appreciated! :)

Their program listings in NYC are very detailed and "seem" tour-specific: Ballet Mistresses are Kontratieva, Krasina, Semenyaka; Ballet Masters are Nikonov, Sitnikov. Conductors are Klinichev, Sorokin (in four perfs I've seen, each has conducted twice. If Kopylov were here it is hard to imagine that he wouldn't have had opening night.).

The orchestra played sublimely for Klinichev in Don Q and Romeo and Juliet last year in Seattle. Raymonda sounded quite lovely under Sorokin in Berkeley.

Thanks for the replies, people.

Now that their visit to Orange County has begun, I'm wondering if anyone now knows if Nikolai Fadeyechev or Alexander Kopylov are with the company at these performances?

Or possibly if anyone would know how I could actually get the info. I'm not sure info down to the detail level of ballet master/coach is actually made generally public, though I would expect conductors to be relatively easy to find.

At any rate, I'm still looking for the info, so if anyone stumbles across it, please drop a note here.

Thanks. :)

all i know is that n.b.fadeyechev was not on the nyc leg of the current bolshoi ballet tour.
i think the nyc house program regularly gives the balletmasters on the tour's artistic staff.
fadeyechev's name was not there this july.
he was on a previous tour to washington d.c. when his son, alexei, was director, mostly i think to oversee the lavrovsky ROMEO & JULIET that he (n.f) helped restage.

Neither of these names appears on the company roster in my program from last night at OCPAC. Lewis Segal mentions in today's LATimes that the company was minus many of its top dancers.
