Laurencia Pas d'Action would be a significant revival to the Mariinsky's repertoire. I am delighted that they are once again performing this treasure from the past!

Indeed - Laurencia is not one they have done locally in the past 4 1/2 yrs (at the minimum, maybe longer).

I think it's easy to guess at casting -- Tchai Pas and Diana/Acteon tend to always be one of Osmolkina/Novikova/Tereshkina; Carnaval uses quite a few corps members and Obratsova or Osmolkina as Columbine... I presume Contradictions would be Lopatkina's territory... and so on.

By the way, does anyone know what Contradictions is ? I have never heard of this piece before.

If this was the cast at the Mariinsky Theatre the tickets would sell out in no time flat and overflow seating would be needed. :)

I'm glad that Lopatkina is performing a pretty busy schedule now.
