I was wondering if anyone had any information on this recent revival of this near extinct work by Lacotte......I see on the Mariinksy web page that it has yet to premiere (I was under the impression it has premiered already?)...isnt it also known as "The Naiad and the Fisherman"?

I was wondering about the ballet's history, and when it was last performed, and why it became lost. What of Lacotte's work on it.....is the ballet notated?

According to "Diaries of Marius Petipa" Petipa revived the work in 1892, and then in 1903, for none other than Anna Pavlova......is this revival based on the 1903 staging?

What of Pugni's score? Whats it like?

Most importantly - IS IT GOING TO BE FILMED?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? :beg:

I'll report (from St P) on the performance of Mar. 16th (Vishneva) and 17th (Obraztsova), if all goes well.
All I know now is what's in Beaumont's book of ballets.
