I took a quick look at the major Bolshoi discussion forum (in russian), sometimes referred to in english as "Ballet Friends," and there are 15 internet pages(!) of discussion already, starting back in April with 21,000(!) views. The interest is certainly there.http://forum.balletfriends.ru/viewtopic ... &start=210
If I have time I will try and see what I can find out.
According to the Bolshoi's own site there will be four performances, starting Thursday night and running through Sunday.http://www.bolshoi.ru/en/poster/index.p ... 1&y26=2011
Thanks, Francis, for the introductory article, which is a preview article.
