Yes, the company left for Madrid yesterday and will be there until Sept. 11th. They're performing only "Le Corsaire" each day -- and each day with different casting.
Yes and there are no tickets left and it seems that everybody is more than happy with their performances.
As far as casting is concerned I can tell you that for the premiere Vaziev has chosen the youngest members of Mariinsky. Renewed artist such as Uliana Lopatkina, Ilya Kuznetsov o Igor Zelensky will dance in other sessions. The three young dancers to whom the director has given the opportunity to dance the premiere are: Viktoria Tereshkina, Mikhail Lobukhin y Leonid Sarafanov.
I'm not going to see them as I live in Barcelona and we have the ENB with Giselle (Tamara Rojo & José Manuel Carreño performing today and I will not miss them) so maybe one day I'll have the opportunity to see this so great Russian Company.
If you know a bit of Spanish or if you want to see one beautiful photo of Viktoria Tereshkina as Medora (more photos will be posted there later on), you can visit:
I hope you enjoy
