Thanks for posting, California.

The Scottish Ballet bringing Song of the Earth is interesting. I'm also interested in seeing Preljocaj's Snow White. I've enjoyed a lot of video excerpts from it.

I'm confused by the Bolshoi bringing Swan Lake. Are the Bolshoi known for Swan Lake? No. I can see having them bring Swan Lake in addition to something else, but the Bolshoi with just Swan Lake alone is a weird tour. Hopefully Alexandrova comes along, I guess.

What's really strange about that tour is one ballet per city -- Coppelia at the Kennedy Center, Don Q in Toronto, Swan Lake in LA. It looks like a way to save money in shipping around sets and costumes, which makes sense, but a fan who wants to see all of them is going to wrack up a lot of expense in airfare and hotel!

Am I correct that they might come to New York but nothing has been announced? Has anybody heard of additional cities in summer 2012?
