IIRC, the Mariinsky Theatre was to close for renovations starting 1 Jan 2007

We await an official schedule from the Mariinsky Theater and, of course, there will be the inevitable cancellations/shufflings even after that press announcement is made.
p.s. Festival-goers who are tired of DonQ can hop over to the Maly-Mussorgsky Theater on April 14 to see the smaller troupe's autumn-2006 reconstruction of the original Petipa/Glazunov Raymonda (assuming that the operaandballet site's schedules of all St Petersburg theaters will stick). Former Kirov prima, Gabriela Komleva, had a hand in this revival, which is said to resurrect some rarely-heard portions of the original Glazunov score, such as Raymonda's 'oriental solo' of Act II (which Nureyev used in a modernistic dance for Abderakhman, in the POB version). Another reason to contemplate a trip to St Petersburg in mid-April.

Casting is yet to be announced, although a French web site has unofficially reported that the POB's Matthieu Ganio will be Albrecht in Giselle.

I only just saw this now! So have they definitely been dropped?

Ostrich, my understanding is that the old theater will stay open (restoration will not be started) until the new second theater is completed.

On the 20th, instead of Swan Lake will be Don Quixote.
On the 14th, instead of Don Quixote will be Romeo and Juliette.
On the 19th, ballets of W. Forsythe, as originally planned.

Let's hope that 'Flora' does 'Awaken' on the 12th and 13th of April. 'Ondine' finally materialized last year after having originally been announced to open the 2003 Festival.

There's always the Mussorgsky/Mikhailovsky Raymonda...is it on the 14th?

Correct. I would skip the 'R&J' on the 14th -- especially if you saw the recent performances of that ballet at the Kennedy Center or in California -- & head for the Maly-Moussorgsky to see their supposedly-glorious 'Raymonda' that night. Komleva & Boyarchikov are said to have recreated a version that is even closer to Petipa than is the current Kirov staging by Konstantin Sergeev.
The website below mistakenly titles the M-M Raymonda as "ballet in two acts"; if you read the synopsis, it's the full three acts.
The above link is for only one of several St Petersburg ticket agencies but at least it gives a good idea of what's on. By the way, my experience with the M-M Theater is that they juggle their schedules less so that the Kirov-Mariinsky. I once bought a ticket for their 'Esmeralda' two months before the show and the schedule for the month in question never changed. Always a risk of switcheroo, though. But at least this is something.
