With the Bolshoi opening at London's Coliseum Theatre on the 30th, Alexei Ratmansky in an interesting interview in The Times, makes a comment on "Swan Lake" which certainly made me "prick up one's ears" in anticipation.

It will be interesting to see if Ratmansky presents his own vision for "Swan Lake," or revives the original 1895 production with the tragic ending :).

Perhaps Ratmansky should go to London to see the Royal Ballet's 'Swan Lake,' which is the 1895 Petipa-Ivanov, with the exception of David Bintley's Act I Waltz and Ashton's Act III Neopolitan Dance. It's not as if the Bolshoi would be the only company out there doing the 1895 Swan Lake.
