I have some cast lists- let me know if that would be helpful except that we all know that the cast lists are changed beyond recognition normally!

Appears that Zelensky IS scheduled to dance in NY though.

Thanks Emma. Before the French tour, the Kirov will also tour Beijing, China from 1-4 October, with "Swan Lake" and "Le Corsaire". A tour to Hong Kong is also being planned for this autumn.<P>Igor Zelensky is actually not cast in the New Yorks season, according to the latest casting information which I've got.<P><p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited June 24, 2002).]

Daria Pavlenko and Adrian Fadeev must dance in France in Carcassonne in South of the France july 17th. It must be with Manuel Legris, Robert Tewsley and Simona Noja too. Against I don't know the programm. At beginning Aurelie Dupont must dance with Manuel Legris but she is injuried and will not dance for several months.

Cathy, no, unfortunately. Andrian Fadeyev is due to dance Don Q in New York on 17 July, and Daria Pavlenko is due to dance Diamonds later that week as well.<P>I think they were invited to dance in France that week, but had to turn down the offer due to the Kirov's New York season.<P>As a matter of fact, Fadeyev and Pavlenko will dance in the Nijinsky gala in Hamburg on 30 June - a pas de deux from Neumeier's Sounds of Empty Pages.<P><p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited June 24, 2002).]

Thanks Kevin for this information. <P>Carcassonne Press Office girl will become "crazy" if she learns that the two Kirov dancer are not dancing too. I already learnt to her that Aurélie Dupont was injuried and won't dance, and she was angry after Show producer Image !

Cathy, I think that the Carcasonne gala is organised by Manuel Legris. Surely he must be aware that the two Kirov dancers are not coming. <P>By the way, I am sorry to hear about Aurelie Dupont's injury. So does it mean that she can't tour Brazil with the Paris Opera Ballet?<p>[This message has been edited by Kevin Ng (edited June 24, 2002).]

Yes, as well as Legris, look on the Brasil topic, and you will see the list of all the injuried dancers Image !

<B>Kirov Ballet Creating A Stir At New York Summer Festival</B><BR>By Nikola Krastev for Radio Free Europe<P><BR>The Kirov Ballet of St. Petersburg opened Lincoln Center's Summer Festival 2002 in New York this week with three classics in the Petipa tradition: "Swan Lake," "Don Quixote," and a revival of "La Bayadere." Expectations run high for a company of this caliber, and if the first reviews and attendance are any indication, the Kirov has little to worry about. The Kirov is also performing "Jewels," regarded as one of choreographer George Balanchine's masterpieces. The Kirov dancers not only breathe fresh air into a technically formidable performance but also confirm Balanchine's connection to St. Petersburg, where he was educated. <P>New York, 12 July 2002 (RFE/RL) -- This year's Lincoln Center Festival marks the Kirov Ballet and Opera's first visit to New York in three years, and begins a two-year collaboration between the Kirov and the Metropolitan Opera.<P>The festival features the North American premiere of Kirov's new production of Leon Minkus's "La Bayadere," as well as productions of Tchaikovsky's "Swan Lake," Minkus's "Don Quixote," and the New York premiere of George Balanchine's "Jewels." The works also feature the Kirov Orchestra, under the direction of Valerii Gergiev. <P><A HREF="http://www.rferl.org/nca/features/2002/07/12072002171017.asp" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><P>*************************************<P><B>Kirov Ballet recreates historic 'Bayadere'</B> <BR>By Frederick M. Winship for UPI<P><BR>NEW YORK, July 12 (UPI) -- St. Petersburg's Kirov Ballet company opened the 2002 Lincoln Center Festival this week with a recreation of a 102-year-old production of Marius Petipa's "La Bayadere" that marked the tentative beginning of modern ballet.<P>Prior to the 1900 pantomime tended to dominate Russian ballet as a means of telling a story, and this was true of the original 'La Bayadere' when it premiered at St. Petersburg's Maryinsky Theater in 1877. When Petipa reworked it 23 years later, pantomime dominated only the first two acts and classical dance took over the rest of the four-act, four-hour work.<P>Since then, patomime has diminished in most 20th century ballets until choreography alone tells the story, if there is a story to be told.<P>Thus Kirov's performances of "La Bayadere" during its engagement at the Metropolitan Opera house through July 20 makes it possible for audiences to witness an historic moment in dance history that eventually led to the plotless ballet form created by George Balanchine, a Russian émigré to the United States, in the 1930s.<P><A HREF="http://www.upi.com/view.cfm?StoryID=12072002-100629-4775r" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

And unlike ballet directors of the Soviet era, he does not seek to modernize the 19th-century classics, the Kirov's signature pieces. Instead, he has stirred controversy at home and abroad by presenting reconstructions of these ballets in virtually original versions, based on turn-of-the-century choreographic notation.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/14/arts/dance/14KISS.html" TARGET=_blank><B>Click for More</B></A>
