The Kirov is also due to tour Hong Kong this winter.

For the casting, I guess the leading roles won't be anyone else but (the same old) Zakharova/Gumerova/Korsuntsev and Kolb.
I wish I could go to Beijing to see Siegfried and his Swan queen make their adventure to the Great Wall of China.

In the second gala programme in Macau next Friday, Anton Korsakov will make his debut in "Tchaikovsky pas de deux", dancing with Ayupova. This pair will dance Sleeping Beauty pas de deux on the first gala.

It will be interesting to see the Hong Kong audience's reaction to "Jewels" today.
The cast list for the two galas in Macau this coming week is as follows.
Rubies - Tarasova, Fadeyev, Dumchenko.
Swan Lake pdd Act 2- Gumerova, Korsuntsev
Chopiniana 7th Waltz - Dumchenko, Baranov
Fairy of Dolls - Sheshina, Khrebtov, Scherbakov
Sleeping Beauty pdd - Ayupova, Korsakov
Romeo and Juliet pdd- Dumchenko, Baranov
Dying Swan - Gumerova
Le Corsaire pdd - Tarasova, Batalov
Almost the same programme, except that Ayupova and Korsakov will dance Tchaikovsky pdd instead. Don Q pdd replaces Le Corsaire pdd, with Tarasova and Batalov

And I look forward to seeing the performance of Sarafanov in the near future. Hope to see him in Kirov's north UK tour next year.

The Hong Kong audience loved the Kirov's two performances of "Jewels" yesterday even more than "Giselle". Both performances, especially the evening, were gloriously danced. Sofia Gumerova was superb as the "Diamonds" ballerina and the second woman in "Emeralds". (I miss Veronika Part in this role in Emeralds though.) Andrian Fadeyev was a dazzling "Rubies" soloist, full of charisma, dancing with Elvira Tarasova. There were loud ovations at the end of both Jewels performances from the appreciative audiences who are 'starved' of Balanchine choreography. It's not possible unfortunately to see Balanchine ballets often in Hong Kong.
The last time Balanchine choreography was performed here was in 2000 when the ABT danced "Theme and Variations", and the Pacific Northwest Ballet danced "Midsummer". I am deeply grateful to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre for asking the Kirov to bring "Jewels" here.

Svetlana Zakharova is rehearsing at the Mariinsky now for the Swan Lake performance on the 7th of December which will be a tribute to the late Viktor Andreyevich Fedotov.

I found out that a part of the Kirov which left Hong Kong on Monday then flew to Moscow to give a single performance of the Fokine programme earlier this week before finally returning to St. Petersburg.

So ended the Kirov's memorable two-week tour to Hong Kong and Macau, on a high note. The good news is that they are due to return in the 2005/6 season. But meanwhile I look forward to the Kirov's Mariinsky Festival in St. Petersburg next Feb.
