Time to begin to plan and save our pennies for the next great reconstruction of a Petipa work -- it's the 1898 RAYMONDA, to be staged by Sergei Vikharev, in Milan! Details below, from the La Scala web, but it appears that even the sets & costumes will be restored. Wow.

It appears that the Mariinsky's Olesya Novikova will be one of the ballerinas essaying the title role.

Great news. Yesterday I was watching Bessmertnova's, which I adore...(I especially LOVE the music of the last act's Grand Pas' Adagio, which is sublime). I'm very curious to finally see how the White Lady was initially designed, and its original weight on the story.
Can't wait for the clips to pop on Youtube... :thumbsup:

Thanks for posting this Natalia! Hope to see you there! I've never been to La Scala.

Every year I've been hoping to see Raymonda at the Mariinsky Festival.
It doesn't look like it's ever going to happen there. (Especially a reconstruction of it).

Indeed, chiapuris. Best of all: It's even easier to get to Italy than to Russia for a short vacation...Look Ma, NO VISAS! :clapping:

Now if the ballet deities can have the La Scala Raymonda filmed, that would be even better! :clapping:
(And considering La Scala ballet has released videos of Swan Lake, Giselle, Midsummer Night's Dream and La Bayadere in recent years, it's not out of the realm of possibility.)

This is still "on schedule." A small update to the La Scala Ballet web indicates that tickets go on sale July 27, 2011.

How ironic that the biggest Petipa event in 2011 will not happen in St. Petersburg or even in Russia. St P seems to prefer the likes of Nacho Duato as head of the Mikhailovsky and - to add insult to injury - Preljocaj's LE PARC (Vishneva vanity project?) as the centerpiece of the next Mariinsky Ballet Festival in April.

So it's Milan all the way for vacation plans.

A couple of things regarding the last post, Le Parc by Prelocaj is a work of genius, though I'll admit it may well be beyond the abilities of the Kirov.

Going to Milan? it won't be simple, a friend went to see Sylvie Guillem there last week and told me the tickets cost a fortune and when he booked he was expected to give his passport number as security. To me that is outrageous, what right has a *!*!ing theatre got to ask for someone's passport number just to book a ticket? I was seriously thinking of going to see this, but after being told about La Scala's methods I've changed my mind.

I've booked tix via internet before for both La Scala and La Fenice (Venice) and had no troubles. Sorry that you had problems.

There will be a pre-premiere conference about Raymonda on Oct 5, 5pm, in the Toscanini Hall of La Scala. Tickets are free but 'first come, first served.'

http://www.teatroall...e-raymonda.html

The opening is still set for the following Monday, Oct 11, starring Novikova, Cote and Murru. This will be Vikharev's reconstruction of the 1898 Petipa original, using the Sergeyev Notebooks of Harvard University. The 1898 Imperial Mariinsky sets & costumes are also being recreated.

Now that we know that La Scala Ballet's AD, Vaziyev, is staying put in Milan (not going to Moscow to take over the Bolshoi Ballet), everything should proceed as originally scheduled. Whew! :smilie_mondieu:

Ticket sales still begin on July 27.

Novikova still scheduled to dance 4 of 7 performances, including the premiere. Guillaume Cote no longer listed as a guest performer. Massimo Murru still on.
