I don't think so.

Interesting question: The latter is highly unlikely and at one point it was made clear by the Bolshoi that they wouldn't be wanted back. Frankly I'm surprised they are dancing at all.

Cubanmiamiboy - the Maly/Mikhailovsky has been around and doing fine since the time of the Czars. Its offerings may have been humbler (less glitzy) before Kekhman came along but, IMHO, it was a more charming and high-quality (elegant) ballet company back then, pre-2006. Maybe the auditorium's classy muted colors and soft lighting will be restored to pre-Kekhman days, not to mention the purer repertoire?
re. Mashinka's thoughts on Osipova/Vasiliev and the Bolshoi connection - Frankly, 'Bolshoi-Kekhman Tensions' were the first thing that came to my mind when I heard about the Filin incident. Not Tsiskaridze or any other thing.
Is the Mikhailovsky still planning to appear in London next month/early April? I'll be in Paris at that time and was considering taking the Chunnel Train to London for a couple of days. I can't, in good conscience, buy a ticket for anything related to Kekhman and the Mik, sorry.

As the classical stuff coincides with the Easter weekend, I doubt if any places will be left on Eurostar by now.
Can I say that I'm disappointed that the lion's share of performances are going to O & V with Novikova, Matvienko and Sarafanov just getting one classical role each. There is footage of Ivan Vasiliev dancing in Giselle on the internet. He is not my idea of Albrecht at all.
