There is an article in today's New York Times regarding Nacho Duato and this company. The article mentions that the company will come to New York (the Koch Theater) in June 2012.

I found it on the Ardani site - June 19 July 1st 2012 - Giselle, The Sleeping Beauty, and Duende/Prelude/Without Words - yep, Lincoln Center Koch Theater.
Added after reading Natalia's posting - I might just go to Giselle (since i live here), being not a big fan of "modernization" of true Petipa jewels by "contemporarily geniuses"
Truly said that they don't bring what you listed

Thanks, YID. I have mixed feelings. While a Sleeping Beauty from a top Russian troupe is always welcome -- assuming it's classical and not the long-promised "Nacho-modern" version! -- I am sorry to not see their recent full-length Laurencia (a big hit in London & St-P) among the offerings. Another Giselle , after POB's version tours the USA one month earlier? And an evening of Duatos for the mixed bill, instead of the evening of one-act Petipa rarities that the Mikahilovsky did in London (Cavalry's Halt included)? I'll pass and save my money unless the Sleeping Beauty is the classical version and the casting is great.

EDITED TO ADD: It WILL be the Nacho Duato Beauty, according to this article:
The same version that prompted the much-respected Nikita Dolgushin to opt "out of this project":

So I will indeed pass on the "Micky-Bananas Theater" tour.

The engagement at the you-know-who-theatre in New York is now on their web site:

If you click over to "purchase," it appears they are closing off the third and fourth tiers, and prices seem comparable to the NYCB season.
