  1. The full version of the recent production of Mariinsky, 'The Four Seasons', from Mariinsky TV is available on youtube channel. This starring the amazing Ekaterina Kondaurova and the Vivaldi score re orchestrated by Max Richter.
  2. Absolutely loved the Mariinsky Ballet's Giselle, top quality dancing by Diana Vishneva, Mathieu Ganio and the entire company, my join favourite production of the ballet along with Sir Peter Wright's for The Royal Ballet, so glad they put up a 2016 performance of it on their YouTube channel - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XJZTf4zHlA It was nice to see it in HD quality as I only have on DVD a 1980s performance (with the amazing Galina Mezentseva, Konstantin Zaklinsky and Tatyana Terekhova) so like the costumes looked faded but in the 2016 version you could see all the pretty detai
  3. Signalling the arrival of Yevgeny Konovalov. He (Second Soloist) debuted Thursday at the Mariinsky as Count Albrecht in Giselle. From video clips, in my opinion, he’d be perfect on the Shakespearean Stage. Not a bad dancer either. Keep an eye on him.
  4. Yesterday's matinee was the last performance on the Mariinsky tour of California, La Bayadere at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall with Novikova, Kim and Batoeva. It was magnificent! Rarely do we see such dancing in the Bay Area, and the audience was over the moon. The scenery and dancers competed for space on the small Zellerbach stage but they made it work to create an escapist fantasy set in a mythical past. The elephant, the tiger, the parrots! Oh my! They even managed to get 32 shades on the stage. Kudos to the corps! The same cast (except for the principals) had performed th
  5. I have anticipated attending this performance since it was announced and I am sorry to report that overall, I was disappointed. Here's the review I wrote about last night's experience. Anyone else there?

  7. Here's my thoughts about my first time seeing Mariinsky Ballet live. I went in without any judgement or concrete expectations and left looking forward to seeing them again in the fall when they will perform Paquita

  10. The Mariinsky Ballet was back in Baden Baden over the holidays for its annual visit and with a variety of works – Swan Lake, two mixed bills and a gala performance. I attended the matinee performance on Boxing Day of one of the mixed bills, comprising two small-scale works that were premiered in 2017. The Cat on the Tree is by Anton Pimonov, a former dancer with the company, to songs by Nico Muhly and Teitur Lassen. When I saw the title of the work, I thought it’d be a narrative piece – actually it isn’t. The lyrics are based on comments made below videos on YouTube, and I understa
  11. Sorry to start this topic on a sad note. GALINA RAKHMANOVA There are some special dancers whose names never (or almost never) appear in the first lines of castlists but, nevertheless, not only their performance impresses as much as the principals’ but on some occasions is even more memorable. For me Galina Rakhmanova at Mariinsky Ballet was one of those special dancers. She graduated as a classical dancer from Natalya Dudunskaya’s class at Vaganova Academy and, as tradition required, joined the Kirov’s corps de ballet. Gradually she started getting some coryphee and solo parts, like K

  13. I would much appreciate some advice. I can afford two visits so have decided on Swan Lake and Bayadere, mainly because I've seen Anna Karenina and don't enjoy DQ. I know it is hard to be exact about casting, but any recommendations as to whom I should look out for? I like my ballet lyrical, Cojocaru and Asylmuratova being my absolute favourites.
  14. I was at the rehearsal for 'Don Q' the afternoon (NB - Act One only) before the opening night. Here are some photos: Viktoria Tereshkina, Kimin Kim © Dave Morgan.

  18. Does anyone have any idea when the Bolshoi or the Mariinsky Ballet companies issue their programmes for the later half of the year? My dd is lucky enough to be going to both Moscow and St Petersburg in October and would love to go to the ballet, but when I have looked online it just says to be advised later in the year. Because she is going with college we will need to request that she be allowed to go in advance and I don't want to find out too late and her miss the opportunity. If I had some idea I could talk to college staff and at least broach the subject. Can anyone help?
  19. The January edition of the Dancing Times says that the Mariinsky Season next year will be from July 24 to August 12. They open with Don Q and follow this with Swan Lake, Anna Karenina (Ratmansky), and a Triple Bill (Carmen Suite; Infra and the Paquita Grand Pas), closing with La Bayadere.
  20. I am lucky enough to find myself in St Petersburg for a few days next month and should be able to make time for a visit to the Mariinsky. I am fine with practicalities (booking through the .ru and not the .com site etc) but would appreciate advice from all the knowledgeable Russian ballet followers here on what would be best to see. Available options during our stay are The Nutcracker in the new Mariinsky II or a programme (details as yet unpublished) called Michel Fokine's ballets in the Mariinsky itself. Casting is not yet available for either. I would happily do both but my partner
