Nancy Reynolds of the Balanchine Trust talks about the process of taking 'Jewels' to the Kirov. It provides fascinating insights into the way that the Trust works and the challenges that the piece presented for the Company. We also learn that the Kirov would like to have work by Robbins and also MacMillan's 'Manon'. It could be an interesting decade in the glorious history of the Kirov. Now if only the Bolshoi could get some decent new rep.

I think the Kirov did "Scotch Symphony" several years ago,or was is "Tzigane"? I can't remember... all I know is that I saw a PBS-produced video about the life of Suzanne Farrell which showed her re-staging, at the Kirov ballet, one of the ballets which she has the rights to. If anybody's interested, I can find out the name of the video--they have it here in the public library here--the video's really good, because it actually covers the whole life and career of Farrell, which is also about Balanchine, of course, since their lives were inextricably bound.

Yes, trina, I would be interested in getting my hand on that video. Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
