The posters in front of the theater show that another int'l guest will take part in the final gala - Isabel Ciaravola of POB.
Tonight: premiere of Farouk Ruzimatov's (yes, now it's his staging) of a new CORSAIRE at the theater that he directs, the Mikhailovsky. According to information in 'Chas-Pik' newspaper, the role of Ali will be danced by....Farouk himself!
EDITED to add:
Thank gooness, 'Chas Pik' was wrong about FR dancing Ali tonight. Instead, the Mikhailovsky web now lists:
Medora – Irina Perren
Gulnara – Sabina Yapparova
Conrad – Artyom Pykhachov
Ali – Aidos Zakan
Lankedem – Alexander Omar
Birbanto – Andrey Kasyanenko
Conductor: Anatoly Rybalko
The above also confirms that the Matvienkos are totally out of that theater...not even guest artists.

The cast changed somewhat from the above-announced - different Ali.
I sure hope that the Mariinsky's Humpbacked Horse, tomorrow night, is better than this.
