“ Montreal dance fans who are still lamenting the demise of the Stars of ballet a few years ago might find solace in a star-filled performance next Friday… If the Russian Gala program is a bit too predictable, it is still a chance to see classic works performed by artists from companies whose traditions date back to the very creation of those works. “
