Also in a fortnight's time, the Kirov will premiere Balanchine's "Prodigal Son" in an all-Balanchine programme which also includes "Theme and Variatioins" and "Serenade"

The Kirov is touring Spain this week doing Lavrovsky's Romeo and Juliet.

"In all, the production makes one wonder whether, after half a century, the native city of Georgy Melitonovich Balanchivadze - the city in which he grew up, where he studied at the conservatory and where he first appeared on stage - might soon become known as "the home of Balanchine."

For now, that road leading to the 'house' still has to go through New York/Harlem, Seattle, San Francisco, and Miami. I'm not saying it can't happen in St. Petersburg, but it's going to take time and an attitude adjustment on the Mariinsky's part.
It's amusing that PRODIGAL is included within this thread for 'young choreographers.'

I am personally very excited about the way Balanchine is growing, albeit slowly, on Russian ballet audiences (they truly do not know what a treat they have in store). I now have similar hopes for Ashton's introduction to the Russians - the Bolshoi are doing his 'Fille mal Gardee' shortly. Another treat in store for those luckily ignorant Russian ballet fans!

However, I don't want this to be interpreted as slight to the Kirov. The company performs well in Balanchine and I can see how they would be very successul in Prodigal Son. I would love to see it.
