performance presentation

The choreographerToer van Schayk: The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, which will be premiered by the Polish National Ballet in 2011, is a highly successful version of the tale created by me and Wayne Eagling. It was first performed by Het Nationale Ballet in Amsterdam in 1996. I had originally set the action in Amsterdam. However, for this production in Poland I adapted the setting to 19th century Warsaw. Although the ballet is usually known as The Nutcracker, we wished to honour E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original tale and used the original title The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. I was delighted to find out that Hoffmann had lived in Warsaw, and in all likelihood had conceived the tale there around 1806. Therefore, I felt justified in including Hoffmann, with his famous tomcat Murr, among the guests at the St. Nicholas party, at the home of Hoffmann’s friend Julius Eduard Hitzig, another historical Varsovian figure. Not only the decor, but also parts of the choreography have been adapted or newly created for the Polish production. The Russian ballet scholar and composer Boris Asafiev wrote about The Nutcracker: “It is a rare artistic phenomenon, a symphony of childhood, or rather of the transition period, when the yearnings of a yet unknown adolescence make one restless, but the habits of childhood have not yet been left behind.”

“I have never attempted to explore what makes a marriage truly happy. However, I think that two people should match each other like a pair of horses having: an even gait, an even turn, equal fire - then the journey together is pleasant and far less of a drag. But when one is swift, and the other lazy, one is soft, and the other hardy, when one is pulling while the other is jumping – then the devil may take it!”

         

Here is Count Fredro at his best! Love affairs were one of his favourite themes. The lightness and zest with which he presented them, inspired choreographers of the oncoming premiere Fredriana at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera. Fredro's comedies, combined with Moniuszko's humorous yet mysterious, lyrical yet dramatic, music, turn out to be a perfect duo. The audience will have a chance to see this duo in both parts of the ballet evening at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera.

performance presentation

A copy of La Dame aux Camellias by Alexandre Dumas, fils, was among the objects displayed at the Splendour and Misery. Pictures of Prostitution, 1850-1910 exhibition held at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. The exhibition was designed by the opera director Robert Carsen. In the rooms lined with expensive fabrics – such as had lined courtesans’ boudoirs – one could admire, for instance, a ‘pleasure chair’ constructed for Queen Victoria’s son, or Henri Gervex’s naked Rolla spread out on her bed. Tarts, demi mondainesgrandes horizontals of the second half of the nineteenth century inspired the artists – they embodied the dream of freedom, as well as its price. As Kees van Dongen said, ‘they knew life in all its expressions.’ The Lady of the Camellias is one of John Neumeier’s most famous ballets. It was Neumeier who associated the romantic love of Marguerite and Armand with the musical quintessence of Romanticism: the music of Fryderyk Chopin.
