In a continuous effort to bring to South Florida the most iconic ballets of the Russian repertoire, Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida presents a Tribute to Diaghilev, the art critic, patron, ballet impresario and founder of the Ballets Russes, with three splendid works that translate the spirit of the era.
Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida joins the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky’s controversial piece The Rite of Spring, with a new version choreographed by the company’s Artistic Director, Vladimir Issaev and performed by their magnificent dancers. The production utilizes diverse and unique special effects as moving projections by DMD Studios, with costumes decorated by artist Maria Rivas.
The program also includes Le Spectre de la Rose, a beautiful short ballet about a young woman who dreams of dancing with the spirit of a souvenir rose from her first ball, based on a poem by Théophile Gautier. The dances were designed by Michel Fokine and the music is Hector Berlioz’s 1841 orchestration of Carl Maria von Weber’s piano music called “Invitation to the Dance”. Léon Bakst designed the original sets and costumes, which are the basis for Arts Ballet’s designs that have already been recreated at the ateliers of the Mariinsky Theater in Russia.
Finally, the show includes the ballet Petrouchka. Audiences will enjoy this very unique production with music of Stravinsky, costume designs by Jorge Gallardo, and choreography by Issaev himself. The Ballet in one act is set in the middle of a Russian Fair and tells the story of three puppets: Petrouchka, the clown, the Ballerina and, the Moor. All three puppets are commanded by the Charlatan, a sinister, bearded puppeteer and magician, who gives the puppets human emotions.
With this programs Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida will introduce dancers Hirofumi Ikeuchi y Saori Morioka y Takayuki Asai and Lilian Hill performing the leading roles, accompanied by local and international dancers.
