I have been trying hard to restrain my whining on the theory that it's an unbecoming trait and, on the internet, will of course live forever. But just in case anyone is keeping track, we have entered the second week of May and still the website offers no word on Mariinsky programing for the first week of June. In any of the theaters.
I underline the word programming. I'm not talking about cast information. They DO still say there is an "international" White Nights festival through all of June and through early July. Just don't say what it involves past May 31st.
Of course, one assumes they are dancing Swan Lake on June 6th based on the ads for the 3D live broadcast of it. But evidently they are not interested in selling seats to the live performance. Perhaps because it's so far off in the future...no ballet fan in their right mind could be trying to plan that far ahead.
So sorry about your predicament! It is unbelievable that they don't at least list the repetoire. I guess most people who planned to go to the White Nights will forget it this year unless they live in St. Petersburg and can decide at the last minute. All others have no clue when to travel so they can't get a visa or airfare or hotel at this point without risking a lot.
The only condolence is that you will already be there and hopefully some good things will finally appear on the playbill and they shouldn't be sold out since nobody knows what is playing. From what I can tell it seems like tons of tourists populate the audience, so I wonder if there will be lots of seats available, since most people will not bother to travel since they have no clue what will play.
