I haven't seen Duato's Sleeping Beauty or Romeo and Juliet (need to carve out time to watch above videos), but my hometown company does perform Jean-Christophe Maillot's R&J, and I've heard some people express reservations about it in terms of what they think of as the original productions (Lavrovsky and Macmillan) I think of the Maillot in much the same way I think of Matthew Bourne and his alternate versions of Swan Lake and other heritage works -- I don't expect them to follow the choreographic pathway of the original productions, but I'm curious to see what he does with such central works. Some of them have been more successful than others on their own terms, but I know that if I were hoping to see a restaging or reconstruction of the original choreography I would be confused and upset. I wish that the Mikhailovsky could have kept their earlier productions in play along with Duato's new versions -- that could have been a fascinating experience.

Why wasn't Perren listed for any lead roles in the Mik tour schedule for NYC in Nov 2014?

I don't know. I think she is much better Giselle than Vorontsova. Same for Soboleva, both wonderful.
Perren will dance the role of the Actress Diana Mireille in "Flames of Paris". It is a beautiful and very difficult role. She will alternate with Borchenko who is excellent. Borchenko will dance also Myrtha and The Queen of dryads. Sadly no "Swan Lake".

I know for sure Bondareva will dance as a guest performer.
Maybe the same for Shapran. Other possibilities are Soboleva - she danced the role two times with a great success - or Borchenko who is preparing for her debut as Giselle with her coach Yulia Makhalina.
