Battle Of The Ballet

Russia's Bolshoi Ballet will perform next year at the Saratoga Springs Performing Arts Center, where the New York City Ballet has seen its annual summer residency reduced from three weeks to one week.

Tthe Moscow-based dance troupe will stage four performances of ``Don Quixote'' from July 30 to Aug. 1.

SPAC is one of three U.S. locations on Bolshoi's 2014 schedule. One of the others is the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. The third hasn't been announced.

The New York City Ballet's Saratoga residency was only one week this past summer, down from the traditional three-week stay, because of rising costs. It's also performing for one week next summer.
