I hope they bring Laurencia!

I believe this is Angelina Vorontsova.



I would rather like to see her, despite all the things said about her during the recent Bolshoi tragedy, because in this video she looks quite lovely and deserving of an audience.

Laurencia is a very nice ballet, although very Soviet-like, in my personal opinion. It is a bit much at the end when they behead the commander and then break into joyous dance! LOL It actually made me laugh out loud! Subtle it is not!!!! 

 

But it is a lot of fun. The Mikhailovsky's Flames of Paris is also GREAT! I personally think it is MUCH better than the Bolshoi's version. Much more exciting.

Very glad to have opportunity to see the new ballet stars at Mikhailovsky Ballet: Kristina Shapran, Angelina Vorontsova, Oksana Bondareva and others.

 
See? She is indeed very talented. I feel happy for her to get out from cocoon with chance of flying and shining.

Probably So Cal since Ardani has a long established relationship with OCPAC. When does OCPAC usually announce its new season?

Should be soon--I don't remember them ever announcing after the beginning of March, but I suppose it depends on signing the dotted lines for the contracts.  I am assuming it's SCFTA/ex-OCPAC as well due to the Ardani connection. Usually the Mariinsky (Ardani also runs their tours) goes to Berkeley as well on their West Coast runs, so maybe the Mik will do the same, though they may not have quite the drawing power.

Announced yesterday, they will be at SCFTA in November 2014--I think 11-28-11/30--with Flames of Paris. Whether or not that means Flames for NYC, I don't know. I'm just glad it's not Don Quixote (though I would like to see Laurencia too)!!!

Here's the LA Times story, with the rest of the season at Segerstrom: 

 

http://www.latimes.c...y#axzz2uTG3pWiz

 

Nov. 28-30 is Thanksgiving weekend, an odd time for a major show like Mikhailovsky. Given the airport chaos that weekend, it won't be encouraging for out-of-towners.

 

The rest of the season:

*ABT: March 3-8, 2015 - The Sleeping Beauty (Ratmansky)

*National Ballet of Spain: April 24-26, 2015

*Eifman Ballet: June 5-7, 2015

 

The Times story notes that the Koch gift of $2.5 million for SB is a matching grant. I don't recall that his previous gifts were matching gifts that would require a huge fund-raising effort by ABT in addition to their regular fund-raising.

Alas, the LA Times article is subscription-only access -- did they mention anything about repertory for these events?

That's odd -- I'm not a subscriber. You might try again.

 

Eifman: West Coast premiere of an American story, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “Tender Is the Night,” choreographed by artistic director Boris Eifman

 

Mikhailovsky: Flames of Paris (but the original, not the Ratmansky version)

 

Spain: no information

Is Shapran at Mikhailovsky now? I thought she went to the Stanislavsky (Polunin's new home) after graduating from VBA

Yes, she moved to St. Petersburg to join Mikhailovsky. She is with Altynay Asylmuratova now.

The Mik is bringing Giselle, Don Q, Flames and a mixed bill to the Koch in Nov.  Supposedly Osipova and Vasiliev are on the roster.

Since the Mik engagement is immediately after ABT's fall season, I hope there's no non-compete clause to prevent Vasiliev from performing with the Mik.

Casting has been announced already! http://davidhkochthe...moreinfoMB.html

 

I'm not sure I would bet the farm on those Don Qs with Osipova and Vasiliev!
