According to Igor Stupnikov in the June issue of Dancing Times, Makhar Vaziev "is no longer called Director of the Ballet Company but company manager." Valery Gergiev has formed a new artistic board for the Kirov Ballet including a number of principals including Asymuratova and Zelensky, coaches, and ballet masters.
So I suppose that Gergiev is effectively the head of the Kirov Ballet.

Strange that this is mentioned, since Gergiev already formed an artistic board for the ballet way back in January 1997, consisting of among others Asylmuratova, Zelensky, Belsky, Makarov, and headed by Gergiev himself.

The question is perhaps will it function this time?

Vaziev last year agreed to bring the Kirov company to Macau this December to give several performances of Sleeping Beauty. But according to the Macau Cultural Centre, Gergiev has abruptly cancelled this Macau tour recently, and the Kirov's repertory for the Japanese tour this autumn has been changed as well.
