Sheetsthe Big successes of the big style
In the USA proceed Bolshoi theatre tours. So high-grade trip for ocean (thirty five days, two “ full-length “ the ballet, five big cities) the Moscow theatre waited for the whole ten years. In 90 - m to America there went absolutely other troupe. As big in those days with good reason could be called as Grigorovich`s theatre: the repertoire was made exclusively by performances of the main ballet master, and the cohort of soloists was headed by his wife. Despite raznogolositsu in estimations of experts, tours made spectator success. However new invitations to America has not followed. It is clear that present tours have special value for theatre: Last summer Big not unsuccessfully tried to strengthen reeled prestige in an eurogroin (tours in London), the turn now has come to restore reputation behind ocean. The repertoire for tours has been chosen cleverly: the theatre has realised that in quality “ the card “ Grigorovich`s repertoire of thirty-year prescription any more does not pass, and more actual the Moscow ballet cannot brag of anything. Therefore Big has counted on older, still “ dogrigorovichevskie times “.
In the USA have carried the main dramatic ballet of an epoch of a socialist realism - “ Romeo and Juliette “ Leonid Lavrovsky and svezheotdelannyj “ Quixote “ applying for returning to the primary source Mountain. This nachalovekovsky the ballet master was too the great admirer “ realism “ therefore Moscow “ Quixote “ considerably differs from the western colleagues. Those look like usual classical divertissements, we tries to tell a certain story and besides to fill more densely “ ispanshchiny “. For what characteristic dances which in the West were not able to dance for ever are used.
Moscow arhaika has made due impression upon the American reviewers. Performances amicably praise both Washington Post, and New York Times, noticing that “ returning Big in ten years has filled a gap which so painfully was felt by the American public “. “ Romeo and Juliette “ passes in quality “ the museum value of unusual scale based on a principle of drama realism which with such work is reproduced by modern actors “. The elder nju - jorkskih baletovedov Anna Kiselgof along with Peter Williams`s scenery seriously and in detail assorts actor`s works in performance. Its colleague Saru Kaufman to original ecstasy was finished by tonic Nina Ananiashvili: “ In flying jumps of her foot cut space as scissors that became tremendous expression of its desire “. America has seen in the Moscow troupe of change to the best. The verdict which has been taken out in Washington by leading newspapers of the USA, for certain will define success of tours Big and in other cities - Chicago, Seattle, Los - Andzhelese, Orandzh - Kaunti. But in July it is necessary to theatre one more examination: in nju - jorkskom the Lincoln - the centre before the American intellectual elite Big will present “ Giselle “ in Vladimir Vasileva`s interpretations and the extensive concert program.
