There wasn't anything about it on the Bolshoi website when I searched it, but maybe you can look for the different locations they will be performing at on ticketmaster.com
I was ecstatic to learn they would be in Chicago the same time I'm visiting it (my school's dance team and I are going to Indianapolis for Nationals, and we plan on staying in Chicago for an afternoon). I was hoping to get to see them perform La Baydere (because Swan Lake is just NOT one of my favorite ballets), but they're only doing SL that day. Oh well, guess I can't have everything.:rolleyes:

You should definitely try to catch the Swan Lake. Its not my favorite ballet either, but I got to see it in Moscow this fall and it was definitely done quite well.

Not being a Bayadere fan, I would have preferred to see them in Swan Lake - however it was wonderful to see them at all.

In school the floors are mostly wood. The shoes do indeed clang around on the wood. Dancers were however always corrected for not using their feet correctly if the noise was really too loud!;) The dancers even made too much noise in soft ballet slippers, and not only the girls!:eek:
Not having seen Kirov or Bolshoi in the US recently, I cannot comment on the possible reasons for the noisy pointe shoes. Most of my students where Grishco or Russian Pointes but they are not clanging around? Maybe it is just the theatre.

In Russia, if I'm not mistaken, one rises onto pointe with a tiny spring. In France, and most Western countries, one learns the roll-through. Orthopaedists tend to favour the roll-through, though wouldn't they, the old dears ?
Perhaps people who know Cecchetti could enlighten us - did he not teach the spring as well ?
