Theatrum mundiRecently on the western scenes of a steel with frightening frequency to appear the dancing collectives naming “ stars such - that of ballet “ - ballet of the Bolshoi theatre or, as on tours which have just passed on British isles, - the American ballet. Certainly, poster every time, for the purpose of attraction of experts and fans of art simply greedy to celebrities, are supplied with the loud names which owners at times even do not know that go on tour in the structures specified on posters of troupes.
some of the well-known dancers nevertheless sometimes appear in such collectives. “ stars of the American ballet “ visited Great Britain, really had the present star of the first magnitude Robert Lafossom (Robert LaFosse); However Darsi Kistler mentioned in the tour poster (Darci Kistler), representing New York City Ballet, simply did not gather in any trip, and injured Lesli Brown (Leslie Browne) from American Ballet Theater and has not stepped on the stage for all time of tours.
thus, a star it was necessary to consider Sjuzen Dzheff (Susan Jaffe) which, of course, not bad dances, is pretty, charming, but in any way does not pull on a star rank.
nevertheless some parts of the program (it consisted of a collection of separate ballet numbers) have impressed critics quite favourably. The miniature " is noted, for example; Apollo “ directed by George Balanchina, representing a pas - de - de Terpsihory (Sjuzen Dzheff) and Apollo (Robert Lafoss): the muse explains to young god sense of dance and, its means, the Universe system. Soloists managed to show brightly to the spectator love passion which inflames between the teacher and the pupil.
And here a scene on a balcony from “ Romeo and Juliette “ “ to Stars of the American ballet “ absolutely not daringly. Sjuzen Dzheff looked, according to critics, it is unpersuasive: unnaturally and unduly solemnly. Its partner, rather known dancer Jeremiah Collins (Jeremy Collins) has received so flatter estimation also.
the Worst critics unanimously recognised a final turn of the programme - “ Come to me “ created by the choreographer - fan Bruce Pedzhetom (Bruce Padgett) on own music in style fate. Does not rescue a miniature even Robert Lafossa`s remarkable choreographic skill - all number strongly looks like a drunk teenage disco where a disk - the jockey (its role nevertheless successfully enough executes Lafoss) unsuccessfully tries to bring to reason the ungirdled youths.
in general, does a conclusion weekly journal THE OBSERVER, even amateurish experiences of the Russian dancers in the field of a modern choreography look much more convincingly.
the Italian critics as the standard also have addressed to Russian ballet - as an occasion statement on scene Arena di Verona well-known " has for this purpose served; Spartaka “ on music of Aram Hachaturjana. “ Ballet - a dinosaur “ as names magazine L ` ESPRESSO “ Spartak “ this time goes in modern statement of Hungarian choreographer Juri Vamosha (Youri Vamos).
Ballet the Italian troupe Balletto di Basilea, not incorporating how many - nibud represents known dancers. The better, confirms magazine. It is quite possible to consider statement next (though also a little overdue) as a gravestone monument to communistic art. The standard “ Spartaka “ the Soviet statements always were considered is there was one of demonstrations of advantage of a socialist realism; moreover, ballet has been shown for the first time in 1956 when the Soviet armies developed victorious approach to independent Hungary.
Juri Vamosh has transformed bulky chetyrehaktnoe product, undoubtedly outstanding on the influence on public, but nevertheless mortally boring, into easy enough two-act show in which does not become so habitual accent on struggle of oppressed slaves against Rome which has wallowed in defects. In the statement centre, according to critics from L ` ESPRESSO, there is a problem of mutual relations of the leader and crowd; the main thing - not class struggle, and an intrigue which is finding out an inconsistency of the leader of revolt.
however, the Italian criticism, a new view on a choreography " considers; Spartaka “ - perhaps, the only thing that it is possible to put down to credit Vamoshu.
