ballet in July

I'm visiting St. Petersburg in mid-July and the ballet company that was formerly known as the Kirov is on hiatus. I'm a former dancer and I don't want to end up in a performance that's watered down for tourists. Can anyone tell me which of the companies performing all summer are appropriate for serious fans of the art?

I'd recommend to check out Eifman Ballet http://www.eifmanballet.ru/ (wait till it uploads and press "English") the shows are on 29th, 30th and 31st.

There's http://www.balletspb.ru/ but I personally haven't seen them. Here's the schedule for July www.balletspb.ru/index.php?p=calendar&area=1, unfortunately in Russian only :( But I can tell you this: the title with 2 words is "Swan's Lake", the title with one word - "Gizelle" ....

and this www.balletandopera.com/index.html…

Bellow is a list of main ballet theatres:

The Mussorgsky (Mikhailovsky) Opera and Ballet Theatre


The Mariinsky (Kirov Ballet) Theatre


The Alexandrinsky Theatre


and then The Hermitage Theatre


You can see the performance of Eifman Ballet that Svetakoshka recommended when they come to NYC (almost every year Apr – May at City Center). It’s a mix of contemporary and classic. I personally like the production of Red Giselle.
