Ballet Russes 2009 Festival

I'm sure NY, Paris, Monte Carlo and St. Petersburg won't be without events, so let's add them to this thread (and come up with some wish lists of our own).

The Dansmuseet of Stockholm has schedualed its Ballets Russes exhibition for May 18 - Nov 1, 2009. They possess one of the larger collections of actual costumes used by the Diaghilev company.
The conference/exhibition at Boston University in conjunction with the Wadsworth Atheneum,
Hartford will be held May 16-21, 2009. Boston Ballet's Diaghilev program includes Le Fils prodigue, L'Apres-midi d'une faune, Spectre de la Rose, and Sacre du printemps.
The Joffrey will be recycling its Diaghilev recreations on a program Feb 19 - Mar 1, 2009. So far
Les noces and Sacre du printemps have been mentioned.
Ballet West follows shortly thereafter, Mar 27 - Apr 4, 2009 with a Diaghilev program including Les Biches, Le Fils prodigue, and Danses polovtsiennes.
The resurrected Oakland Ballet has promised a Diaghilev program. I have fond memories of their Ballets Russes restagings from the late '70s/early '80s.
It looks like the Victoria & Albert (London) exhibition may be pushed back from its target of Oct 2009 to early 2010. That's the problem with have too many possibilites at you hands for inclusion.
Major exhibitions are promised in Paris and Monaco. No details yet.
Time to cash in those travel awards.
