From the St. Petersburg Times, Russia:<P><B>LIBRARY OF CONGRESS LENDS MARIINSKY A HELPING HAND</B><P><BR> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Western scholars have long had an inkling that there must be a musicological gold mine hidden in the chaotic archives of the St. Petersburg's Mariinsky Opera. But for a Russian opera company struggling to reinvent itself in a new, capitalist society, maintaining a historic music library hasn't been an immediate priority. Now, as the Mariinsky prepares to increase its presence in this country - including a 10-year commitment to perform at the Kennedy Center beginning next year - it has decided to put its musical closet in order.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><BR><A HREF="http://www.sptimes.ru/current/features/a_2577.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>MORE...</B></A><P>(This is mostly opera music - however, there is ballet music incorporated within operatic music.)<P>

Interesting. Thanks for the link, Basheva. I hope that the Kirov's annual residency in Washington DC won't lead to less performances elsewhere like London.
