p.s. - Washington, DC, ballet-goers will want to pay close attention to the Tokyo Sleeping Beauty castings, as this provides a big clue as to who will be dancing the leads in that ballet at the Kennedy Center one month later.

As for The Little Humpbuck Horse, this might be regarded an adventurous programming, but the Fokine Programme was changed into an All Star Gala, what I hear is that the impresario did not expect good ticket sales from Fokine.
Perhaps The Little Humpbuck Horse was programmed because Ratmansky's The Bright Stream had a very high critical success in Japan, and also this time Valery Gergiyev is conducting on the first night. （He will be on a Japan tour with the Marrinsky Orchestra, but the Mariinsky Orchestra only performs with The Little Humpbuck Horse) Gergiev tickets sells very well in Japan.

p.s. after having read Naomikage's post - I would not be surprised that the Fokines were turned into the more 19th-C classical All-Star Galas as a further counter-balance to possible lower sales for Little Humpbacked Horse.

The tour is about halfway, with Little Humpbacked Horse and Gala Left.
There was the tragedy of Anastasia Kolegova but other things are going very well and every performance is so wonderful.
You can see some of the behind the scene pictures in the official blog.
and I will try to report about at least LHH and the two galas.
