Dancers had to wait longer than usual: "polovtsian dances" (choreographer Alexander Tikhomirov) was put at the very end of the play. Such was the condition of Lazareva. He decided to solve the long-standing problem: after standing at dances by Borodin in the second Act, the theatres are always empty. The relative legitimacy of rewiring, alas, is the wine of the Borodin: in the 18 years of work on the Opera, he never managed to finish his masterpiece.
