"Swan Lake", the legendary classical ballet to music by Tchaikovsky, is in the repertoire of the Natalia Sats Theater for a reason.
After all, this theater has long been not only for children. He has developed a huge, full-fledged and varied evening repertoire: "Carmen" by G. Bizet, "The Love for Three Oranges" by S. Prokofiev, "Diaghilev" ballets - the choreographic masterpieces of the legendary "Russian Seasons" restored by the theater together with Andris Liepa.
Аll these evening performances are for adults. Performances about love, about passion, about loneliness, joy, happiness and despair, about the fullness of life, as it is shown in the top creations of the world opera and ballet repertoire.
A fantastic ballet based on a legend retold by Heinrich Heine.
On the eve of the opening of the Big Stage, the Natalia Sats Children's Musical Theater presents the first big ballet premiere of the season - Giselle by Adolphe Adam, a great classic of choreographic art, an immortal legend of love, an imperishable masterpiece of academic dance.
This performance will continue the theatre’s line of introducing young audiences to the pinnacle of classical ballet and will complement the academic choreographic repertoire, which already includes such performances as The Nutcracker, Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
"Giselle" will be a gift not only for young spectators who are just entering the world of big ballet, but also for sophisticated connoisseurs who are able to appreciate the purity and virtuosity of the performance of this most complex classical choreographic text, which will be presented in the Natalia Sats Children's Musical Theater in the version of Kirill Simonov.
"Sleeping Beauty" at the Theater. N. Sats became the crown of the choreographic repertoire, thanks to which the constellation of classical historical ballets was almost complete in the theater playbill.
Theatre. N. Sats presents the masterpieces of the world-famous choreographer Mikhail Fokin: the ballets Scheherazade, Chopiniana and Polovtsian Dances, first shown to the world a hundred years ago at Sergei Diaghilev's Russian Seasons in Paris, and restored in the 21st century by choreographer Andris Liepa.
The artists who recreated the costumes and scenery for this project were Anna and Anatoly Nezhny: “This is a landmark work for us,” says Anna Nezhnaya. - But it would be wrong to say that this is only a restoration - despite the abundance of sketches,
materials on scenery and costumes for Mikhail Fokine's ballets are far from being completely preserved.
For us, this is more of an acting job and a reconstruction not of old performances, but of the ideas of legendary artists who, like all innovators, were ahead of their time.”
