"Russian National Ballet"
 
   Does anyone have any information on this company, touring the UK soon? They're performing Nutcracker in Cambridge in mid-Jan, other than that, I have no information, so any reviews / comments would be most welcome

Thanks

Mike

   Mike, I haven't seen this company, but I think it's Moscow-based. I gathered that this company is touring Dublin first later this month.

   I think (please, someone, confirm this, as if I'm wrong I shall just go around purveying the same misinformation!) that they're what used to be Moscow Festival Ballet, in which case they are a distinct notch above Moscow City Ballet. Probably worth seeing, but I can't remember whether I've seen them lately - I tend to mix up all the touring Russian companies, as you might have gathered .

Have you checked the Reviews database?

   Thanks for the suggestion Alison - found a couple of reviews of last year's tour, plus a quick web search reveals that they are what used to be the Moscow Fewstival Ballet, as you state

Also a few details on Cambridge Corn Exchange website

http://www.cambridge.gov.uk/cornex/info/january/jan13.html

Not an ideal venue, but, after recent dire experiences travelling to London by train, somewhere closer to home would make a welcome change

Anybody have any information on the rest of their tour?

I just spotted a review of this company which is touring Dublin this week. Kirov principals Maya Dumchenko and Evgeny Ivanchenko are guests.
