President Bush, Kirov, and PBS special

8 posts in this topic

Just heard that the President and Mrs. Bush attended ballet in St Petersburg. I assume they saw the Kirov Company perform. Does anyone know what they saw?

Also just heard that PBS will air a special next thursday evening on the New York Ballet Company. I'm sure you all have heard of it by now, but I thought I should mention it. Maybe you have more details.

Apparently Putin requested that Shemyakin's "Nutcracker" be presented during Bush's visit, so that's what they saw.

OK, thanks. That would have been nice for them since they are probably familiar with the nutcracker. Wouldn't mind seeing that myself!

Apparently KQED, the SF PBS affiliate, has decided not to air the Diamond Project Gala...:mad:
