just came back from the ticket office, the cheapest was $50 (family circle) or partial views for $40. Orchestra is $125. But on the bright side - i've got good seats
There are ticket prices further down on the press release:
Tickets: $225, 125, 95, 80, 50, 40, 30, 20 ....

Me too...although I did mine online. We can see exact seat locations & I am very, very happy. Of course, the casting can and usually does change but, for now, I'm all-set for Obraztsova's LHH matinee, Kondaurova's Anna and the two mixed bills. (Yeah!!!)
For some reason, I couldn't see the exact seat location online and had to call the box office. Got the seats I wanted though and am practically bancrupt as a result

I'll be there Monday ("Anna Karenina") and Tuesday ("Little Humpbacked Horse"), and it will be great to see everyone who's there.
I wasn't able to select seats, but once I chose a section/price and the number of tickets -- beware: the system defaults to "2" -- I saw my exact seat locations. If you reject the seats and remove from the cart, I don't know if the system is smart enough to remember what you rejected, or like Ticket Monster's system, will keep offering the same seat until it's assigned to someone else.

Great idea about meeting (NYSusan & her ballet friends usually do that). I've tickets for every performance (call me crazy, but They are my MOST favorite) will be happy to meet any day. Happy St. Patric
Haha - yes, WEDNESDAY! Please post or pm if a meet-up point is arranged.

We are really lucky. I just realized that London will not be seeing Kondaurova's Anna Karenina - only NYC. Also, I don't believe that Obraztsova's Tsar Maiden (LHH) has been seen anywhere outside Russia. [LHH is not on the London schedule.] And the company rarely performs Symphony in C, even at home. We are truly blessed.

I can't wait until the New York spring ballet season starts up on May 3 with NYCB. We have an embarrassment of riches this season, with 6 weeks of NYCB, 8 weeks of ABT, one week of Royal Danish and one week of Kirov.

Also the Cubans (early June at BAM).

Perhaps you have done so already, but clips of both dancers in the ballets are available to view on youtube. Maybe that will help you make a selection between the ballets as you will get a feel for each dancer and the ballet itself. I don't think you can go wrong with either choice though--both dancers would be my personal first choices to see in their respective ballets.
Please let us know your impressions after.

My 2 cents (or rather $20-30:-)) Why not to do both? if money is the issue, you can get either a standing ticket or partial view one (I took one ticket like that for LHH for a matinee ;-)) You live only once ;-))
Hello -- I am a relative novice to ballet, and have seen the Kirov only once before (the Fokine Triple Bill, some years ago on tour in Boston). I'll be in New York for a few days next month when the Kirov will be in town. If I had to choose one performance to see, between Vishneva in Anna K and Obraztsova in LHH, which would you recommend? I know that's probably not much to go on (in terms of making a recommendation), but I am a fairly blank slate when it comes to ballet, with no strongly defined tastes -- yet. I'd appreciate your thoughts.
