I bought a ticket to only the opening night long ago, assuming that it would be the best cast. Now I feel as if I've won the lottery, with the only Lopatkina appearance & in two ballets. Now let's hope that it sticks.

Couldn't help but notice that DC will once again be a "Somova No-Fly Zone"...at least for the time being.

Somova has also been removed from the BAM casting.  Apparently she will not be coming on the US mini tour to Brooklyn and DC.

Another reason to celebrate: Shapran & Kimin in Spectre de la Rose!

On the other hand... Pavlenko relegated to Sacre, stomping in clown makeup? Not even a solo in Paquita to show off her gorgeous classicism, fit physique, and the most beautiful face in the company. That is cruel.
