The 2011-2012 season was just announced:

It includes the Bolshoi doing Swan Lake in June 2012. No ABT, but they'll be in Orange County next year with their new Firebird.

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?
