I thought I would post this in case anyone else is going to be playing with the Kirov (Mariinsky Theatre) Ballet while they are touring this season. The Swan Lake cadenza they use is completely different than the one we have all played before! I had done a lot of online searching for it and found no mention of an alternate cadenza until a colleague sent me this you tube link:
I spoke to the conductor, via translator, after one of our performances and he told me Tchaikovsky wrote it and Petipa chose this version to choreograph over 100 years ago.
I just had a run of shows in Toronto at the Sony Centre.
Good luck to anyone else who may encounter it!
