Akimova, this sounds wonderful! I wonder which ballets they'll
perform, and with whom?

In fact, there is no announcement on the Mariinsky’s website.
I got my information from the leaflet received by “Friends of the Mariinsky Theatre”.
The Mariinsky Theatre Trust organized a special tour, which covers only a few days of the festival, from 22-27 March 2006.

These two pages above describe the "Four Kings of Dance" programme.
I could see and read them but, unfortunately, :roll: they don't work now when copied from the website. Could they have special protection? :roll:

May be this one will work:

Some reviews and photographs of “The Kings of Dance” in OC can be found here:

However, at the beginning you will see two portraits: on the left is one of the poet Anna Akhmatova,
and on the right is Tsiskaridze impersonating Akhmatova’s portrait.

I'm curious: why is he impersonating Akhmatova? Is this part of a dance piece?

There is a photographer in Moscow – Ekaterina Rozhdestvenskaya who had a project where celebritiers impersonated for her characters from famous portraits of the past. It was quite popular in Russia. This is how she invited Tsiskaridze to impersonate Akhmatova. You can see some of her photographs here:

Undoubtedly you will recognaze the paintings used although you probably will not recognize the Russian impersonators.
