Apart from the La Sylphide recently mentioned there has been added to the Coliseum dance calendar the following: (1) 10th Anniversary programme for the Russian Icons Gala - 8th March 2015 (2) Birmingham Royal Ballet in Carmina Burana and Serenade, March 2015 (3) Irina Kolesnikova and St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre, Swan Lake / La Bayadere, August 2015 Perhaps given that - as we have been told by a BcoF poster - the Hochhausers are not next year to bring over one of the two major Russian ballet companies, the St. Petersburg Ballet Theatre - who regularly tour regionally throughout the UK - felt brave enough to cover the vast expense of the London venue's hire knowing of the local audience's passion for all things balletically Russian when at the ROH during summer sojourns. I pray their investment proves to be a prudent one and not ruinous. Odds are I fear not particularly stacked in their favour in terms of a commercial return given the capacities rendered by the Russian Seasons programmes during Summer 2014 and knowing that their presentation of Swan Lake with noted principals from the Mikhailovsky Ballet was ultimately cancelled due to lack of advance sales. Sadly the balcony is currently closed from sales for ALL of these presentations. Source
