Mariinsky premieres for 2011 in Saint Petersburg

3 posts in this topic

I've been informed that the plans from 2009 to perform Balanchine's "Agon" are again underway, and that this ballet along with "MidSummer Night's Dream" will be performed by the Mariinsky in 2011, presumably first on home turf. I am hopeful that especially the latter will be part of the festival in April. Currently Jiri Kilijan is on site rehearsing another work, but there are no new ballets between now and the end of 2010 on the calendar.

Thank you, Catherine. Will you be able to go and see these? The Balanchine sounds fascinating. I'd love to see them dance "Agon" and "Midsummer."

I'll bet the Petersburg audience will eat Midsummer up. And Agon will keep them buzzing for a couple of years! :wub:
