I know others don't feel similarly, but I bought tickets today for the Maryinsky for their performances on January 30 & 31. Really, I saw Marguerite & Armand in London in August (twice, once with Vishneva, the other Lopatkina) and it was dull. Even the Londoners didn't like it. I'm hoping to see both Shklyarov & Kimin Kim in Spectre. I'd love to see Tereshkina in anything and frankly, despite Russian grumbling, Skorik (who probably will come) is pretty good. In fact, the whole company is fantastic. Sergeyev, Stepin, Novikova, Shirinkina, are all VERY good. I guess I'm not alone because tickets just opened to the general public Oct. 1 and already for both Friday and Saturday the orchestra is more than 50% sold & first ring sold out!

Canada is now doubtful. Berkeley will get Cinderella while OCPAC will get Raymonda. When will OCPAC announce the new season? Who are the current crops of Raymonda at MB? It may worth a trip if they bring Lopatkina to SoCal.

Currently: Lopatkina, Tereshkina, Kondaurova, Skorik, Kolegova.   Also, Novikova has danced it, but I cannot remember how recently.  (Shirinkina also dances it, but she is on maternity leave.)

To see Lopatkina in the full length Raymonda would be heaven but truthfully, whoever is cast this is a can't miss for me. They tour Raymonda so rarely and we haven't seen any full length Raymonda here in NY for something like 10 years. I'm hoping for Lopatkina, Kondaurova & Tereshkina, but I'll go whoever is cast. Gonna start saving my pennies now!

I wonder if they will bring Raymonda to the Kennedy Center? That is much closer and much cheaper for me to fly to. I am hoping. Raymonda is wonderful. Lopatkina, Tereshkina, Novikova, and Kolegova are all great Raymondas to see! Each one has her own unique way.

Here's hoping to a KC Raymond run in 2016.  If so, I'm definitely there.  KC announces next season in early March.
