All of our UK-based Kirov Balletomanes won't have to travel too, too far to enjoy the Kirov-Mariinsky Ballet next summer, as the Austrian-based Gerhard Rieder Promotions have announced the following tours for the year 2003:

May 12 - 17 - 6 productions, at the Edinburgh Festival Theater. Exact ballet(s) to be announced but the new-old 'Bayadere' has been mentioned in the corridors of the Mariinsky theater.

June 2003 - 12 shows in Graz...exact dates & ballet(s) to be announced.

At least you can circle the calendars & save the dates.

Related note...and a 'bummer' --

The full Kirov Ballet troupe will not -- repeat, NOT -- be at the Kennedy Center in Wash,DC during the 2002/03 season. A handful of Kirov stars will perform in a potpourri concert being billed as 'Kennedy Center Int'l Ballet Festival' during the season. A bit of false advertising, perhaps?....hmmmmm...what happened to the highly-touted "TEN STRAIGHT YEARS OF THE FULL KIROV COMPANY IN RESIDENCE!!!" :)

On the other hand...

Plans are afoot to bring the entire Kirov Ballet & Opera troupes back to the KennCen in December 2003 (the 2003/04 season) with its luxurious-but-radically-revised 'Nutcracker'. Operas will be 'Eugene Onegin' & 'Mazeppa' I've heard. The December 2003 KennCen-Kirov mini-season will be a Tribute to Tchaikovsky. Again...save the dates/timeframe way in advance!

Thanks for your news of the Kirov's tours for next year, Jeannie. I heard that the Kirov is also due to return to Covent Garden next July for a season.
