According to the Mariinsky website, they will be coming to NYC in the summer of 2011 w/ the US premier of Ratmansky's Humpback Horse and Anna Karenina.It will be a Ratmansky Marathon from this winter till the summer.

Thank you, bingham. I was unable to find any mention of a US tour for 2011 on the Mariinsky's website. Even a google search for "mariinsky, new york, 2011, humpbacked" turned up nothing. Could you post a link please, or say which page you found it on? As you know, New Yorkers are eager for all available details.

Thanks.

I found a news release on the Mariinsky site which says they will be in New York at the Met next summer, but they don't include any dates:
http://www.mariinsky...liz_2010_09_14/

"Highlights of the Ballet Company’s touring schedule this year include the French premiere of the ballet The Little Humpbacked Horse at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, a tour to South Korea, the traditional series of winter performances in Baden-Baden (Germany) and Washington (USA), a spring tour to Canada, visiting Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa and summer performances at the world’s ballet capitals – New York and London. At the Metropolitan Opera in New York the programme will feature, among other works, ballets to music by Rodion Shchedrin with choreography by Alexei Ratmansky – The Little Humpbacked Horse and Anna Karenina."

As ABT's season closes July 9, presumably it's after that. Has anybody seen dates?

I tried searching the Lincoln Center site. Nothing about next summer, but I did turn up a one-time performance October 23 that looks interesting:

Best news I've heard in a long time! Especially curious about "other works" :)

Re: possible dates. The Stars of the White Nights festival runs until July 31 which leaves August as the most likely month for the NYC visit. Unless they're planning to split the corps and fly some major dancers back and forth.

It's also interesting to find out who's organizing the tour. I think in all the North-American cities, except for Washington D.C., the Mariinsky is being represented by Sergey Danilyan's company Ardani Artists. If they do indeed run the season at the Met we should expect exorbitant ticket prices and constant bait-and-switch casting changes.

Still, it's wonderful and very exciting news. I just hope they bring some classical works to compliment their Ratmansky galore and let Kondaurova do at least one Anna Karenina. I get to see it - I can die a happy man :)

"Anna Karenina" will be awesome with Kondaurova. So far, there are only three Annas: Vishneva, Lopatkina and Kondaurova; and the debuts were in that order. During the White Nights Festival Katya was reportedly the best of the bunch & the dancers' favorite. The company will also add Balanchine's "Agon" and "A Midsummer Night's Dream" to the rep this season.

Uh-oh, I just looked at the press release, and it seems like it's been modified! There's no mention of summer performances in New York at all! The new text reads:

Highlights of the Ballet Company’s touring schedule this year include the French premiere of the ballet The Little Humpbacked Horse at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, a tour to South Korea, the traditional series of winter performances in Baden-Baden (Germany) and Washington (USA), a spring tour to Canada, visiting Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa and summer performances in London.


Does that mean they're not coming to New York??! That's truly disappointing...

That's too bad, I would really have loved to see the new Little Humpbacked Horse. But I guess some other time....

In DC, they're putting on Giselle this winter, that's not too bad a trip for me but I don't think I can trek down to DC for their Giselle, I'm not all that happy with the overall performance level the company seems to be presenting. I'd go for a novelty but not one of their older productions. A bit too routine, if it was in NY , I might go, but not down to DC.

I suspect the NY ticket prices would have been Ardani Exorbitant so perhaps I can use the cash for other things.

Isn't the Danish Royal touring the US next year?

Despite the official silence I've continued to hear rumors swirling about a possible Mariinsky Ballet visit to NYC this summer. Finally, some official word from the Mariinsky via their Twitter feed. It seems that a 1 week visit in July is still planned, but not yet confirmed. Here's the link: http://www.formsprin...ign=shareanswer

Thanks. I saw and posted this yes'dy in the KennCen tours thread, too, since it was still iffy...but this is from the MT's own Twitter account. Details promised soon. A lot will be known next week, this + KennCen ballet series next year.

Has anyone seen the exact dates announced, other than "summer"? I can't find them on the Lincoln Center Festival site, although it looks like they might announce more information Tuesday: http://new.lincolnce...cf-10-cal-genre

The full schedule is supposed to be announced March 8. I just wonder if it will include the casts (doubtful) and if yes, will the announced casts hold (almost impossible).
