The Kirov Ballet is planning an international tour this upcoming season – Austria, Italy, Britain, the U.S., California, Japan, … and many yummy treats … “Chopiniana,” “Jewels,” “La Bayadere,” etc…

From the Kirov Ballet's website

Kirov Ballet at the Aladdin Theater, Las Vegas September 5-6 6

This is what got me started on this thread … my boss has banished me to Las Vegas for a weekend in August and some performances featuring dance would go a long way towards making the whole thing less painful… Las Vegas suggestions, CD Friends, now is the time to come to the aid of the party!

It's interesting that the Kirov's overseas tours are never listed in the Kirov/Mariinsky's official website.

Tonight is the night....

Once upon a time there was a man called Enrico Cecchetti whose parents were from Civitanova Marche, a nice village in the region of Marche situated in the middle east of Italy.

Cecchetti taught his ballet technique at the Kirov in St. Petersburg and now the Kirov comes to Civitanova to perform an amazing gala which includes several pas de deux from Don Quixote, Le Corsaire, Harlequinade, Tchaikovsky's pas de deux by Balanchine, the Dying Swan solo from Swan Lake, Chopiniana etc...

Civitanova Danza is a summer dance festival in the name of Enrico Cecchetti this year arrived at its tenth birthday.

The Kirov's performance tonight is expected to be the best birthday present for this exciting event.

I'm looking forward to Jewels, even though I've seen it a lot recently. I love to see how different companies treat the same choreography. I wish I could see Serenade, too.

Has Lopatkina ever appeared in London? I have seen her in St Petersburg and I understand she is one of the Peterburgians' favourites.

She certainly has Emma, the last time I saw her here was in Jewels and she danced the Diamonds section with Igor Zelensky.

Cassandra - what year was that? I'm surprised she didn't come this year? She is a favourite for Swan Lake and we were short on female principals.

She was last here in 2001, though of course, without advance casting you can miss seeing certain dancers completely and I would guess that’s why you didn't see her.

Lopatkina is sorely missed this time around, she isn't just the company's prima ballerina (and she should be styled assoluta) but a dancer for whom a category simply doesn't exist, her dancing belongs to a higher plane and comparisons with other dancers become pointless: watching her dance is actually a spiritual experience.

After the birth of her baby it was doubtful if she would return to ballet at all, but she appears to have changed her mind. It's no secret that she has been plagued by injuries throughout her career and I imagine injury my well be the cause of her absence from London.

Do you know, that brings up a good point. I can't see how they're going to manage this entire tour with such a seemingly small number of female leads. It's not that the number is small per se, it just strikes me that for the travails of touring, you'd want about double or triple the number needed, for injury/illness coverage, as the touring is more taxing than staying on their home stage would be. I'm somewhat anxious to see that everything goes okay (I hope it does).

p.s. edited to say, that at least they have a month off between the UK/US rounds. That should help a bit.
