Just a quick post to say that my friend who is attending Swan Lake's opening night is very impressed with Zelensky (needless to say!) and Pavlenko... apparently they place the first intermission after the second act (white swan) which isn't always the case in the States. I'm living vicariously through cell phone calls at intermission!!

Hello Everyone --
I am going to miss the Kirov's Swan Lake in Washington, DC (Dec/Jan); does anyone know where they're headed next? I couldn't find any information on the Internet. Thanks so much.

Hi Maya,

Actually the DC stint concludes the Kirov's US Tour for this year. At that point they head home to St Petersburg. I haven't heard yet about future touring plans to the US but rest assured as soon as someone hears, that will be posted to this site!

The first intermission has always been after the white act in this Kirov production, and other productions which I've seen.

Most productions I've seen (starting with old Bolshoi, Kirov, and Royal Ballet productions) have the first intermission before the (first) white act.

From the Kirov, A Glisteningly Classical 'Swan Lake'

There is no psychodrama, no juiced-up plot, no speck of contemporary pollutant in the Kirov Ballet's "Swan Lake," other than its sun-drenched Hollywood ending. This production is so marvelously pure and direct, and, on Tuesday night at the Kennedy Center Opera House, was so movingly danced and musically sound, that the timeworn story seemed to gain a whole new logic.

Tobi Tobias, Arts Journal

Kirov Ballet of the Maryinsky Theatre / Kennedy Center Opera House, Washington DC / December 30, 2003 – January 4, 2004

Daria Pavlenko, dancing Odette-Odile, was far and away the best thing about the three performances I saw (all three casts) of the Swan Lake the Kirov Ballet brought to Kennedy Center. <a href=http://www.artsjournal.com/tobias/archives20040101.shtml#64624 target=_blank>more</a>
