Yes to all the INs and OUTs on this list, and especially OUT to the truly DIRE Le Parc, Anna Karenina and Cinderella. Also Infra and all the other modern rubbish currently infiltrating the MT repertoire. I am British, and have to say I just feel ashamed that Russian audiences see so little of our best choreographers and get saddled with so much pretentious twaddle.- in my opinion. And I would also like to say that if cost/time is used as an excuse, there are many great Ashton and MacMillan ballets that are one act and wonderful for inclusion on a triple bill playbill.
My favourite MacMillan ballet is actually the beautiful short ballet, Winter Dreams, which is so apt for a Russian company and contains the most wonderful pas de deux at its heart, but Requiem and Gloria also are perfect short ballets that would be wonderful for MT dancers.
Ashton - there is a huge wealth of ballets, all of which would be perfect for MT. I have long wished to see the Mariinsky dancers with their fluidity and perfection of physique and line in the sublime simplicity of Monotones. And Symphonic Variations and Scenes de BAllet also would be great.
And, to bring in family audiences, Jazz Calendar is amusing and Les Patineurs is also comedic and lovely choreography. Even Tales of Beatrix Potter. THESE are family ballets and not the truly awful Ratmansky Cinderella.
I truly despair when I look at some of the awful choices that are served up on the MT playbill - and not just once but over and over again. Little Humpbacked Horse - WHY so many times in the season? Same goes for Carmen Suite.
Does NO-ONE at Mariinsky Theatre ever listen to public opinion? The answer is a Resounding NO.
