I predict the company will bring Beauty to Canada, Raymonda and/or MSND to California.

The National Ballet of Canada is doing Sleeping Beauty in June 2015, it would be nice to see something different from the Mariinsky, that we never see here. But the promoters in Toronto are notoriously unadventurous. When the Sony Centre reopened, we got the Mariinsky doing... Swan Lake, and the next year we got the Bolshoi doing... Swan Lake. Don't get me wrong, the Mariinsky Swan is beautiful, but we NEVER see a full-length Bayadere or Raymonda etc.

Speculating without knowledge, but I imagine that part of the repertory choices depends on what the company is good at touring with.  They travel with the usual suspects (Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle) fairly often -- do they take Bayadere or Raymonda on the road as often?

When Bolshoi was announced for Segerstrom (Orange County Performing Arts Center) in February 2010, they were going to do a week of La Bayadere, which I thought was quite courageous for that audience. Without explanation, a few months before the engagement, they substituted Don Quixote. Did Bolshoi decide they couldn't tour Bayadere because of sets or lack of appropriate principals or did the Segerstrom management get cold feet? I never saw an explanation, but my guess would be the latter.

they took Bayadere to Ottawa the week before they brought Swan Lake to Toronto.

Good to know -- thanks!  Any idea how the performances did compared to other cities/rep?
