Last week, the boys and I went to the ballet "Thumbelina" from Ballet Moscow. I want to teach children to beautiful art now. I strongly recommend everyone to study the libretto before the ballet (they give out free programs at the entrance), so it will be much easier and more interesting for the kids to watch. I liked the scene design very much. Huge multimedia screens, the animation for which was prepared by Studio 7BIOZ, helped to create a fabulous atmosphere. The ballet is modern, not classic. Almost all the characters dance without pointe shoes, in pointe we see only Thumbelina and elves, perhaps this is done in order to show their exaltation. The choreographers of Anastasia Kadruleva and Artyom Ignatiev managed to create a dance that is understandable for both children and adults. The costumes are very interesting. Thumbelina looks like a flower: it was dressed in a pink short flying board, reminiscent of a rose bud and bright green tights. Very effects costumes leaves, mole, mice. Of the characters I liked the mole most of all - Azamat Ishkin. He has some kind of incredible plastic, his every movement enchants. The children really liked the Thumbelina dance (Alexandra Kirschina) with the Swallow (with Semyon Ilyin) and the Thumbelina dance with the elf (Mikhail Kirshin). My boys took the girl Sonya (Eric Asai) for Thumbelina’s mother, before the first act we didn’t read the program) The children appreciated that there is a sound in this ballet, a cry, minimal, but the words ... The presentation does not last long. Just over an hour, and even with an intermission. During the break, the children rushed in, rested, and looked at the fairy tale with pleasure. We liked the ballet!) We’ll definitely come back!) The next shows will take place: 01/26/19, 02/24/19, 03/23/19 To keep the kids from getting bored while waiting for the performance on the Ballet Moscow website, you can download the coloring)
Yesterday were on viewing this performance. In the big hall of the theater was the first time. Before the performance, I read reviews both about the theater itself and about the performance. As always happens, you see not exactly what you expect. There were a lot of complaints about the chairs, but it was convenient for me. Seats were in the stalls 7 row. Yes, harshly. But, for me the main thing is that it is wide enough between rows. Now about the play. Modern staging. Nice to watch, the game is good actors. Liked everything. I want to mention Igor Gordin. Sergey Chonishvili could not play badly. Like this actor. In the assessment she said it would be good. I expected a little more from the theater and the production. Thank you!
I really like poetic evenings, I listen with great pleasure to both Pushkin and Brodsky, and modern poets. But the concert “The Magic of Music, the Magic of the Word” exceeded all my expectations. There were many poems that I either did not hear, or very rarely come across the Internet. I was amazed by the team of Alexey Aigi - the ensemble “4:33”, especially the solo parts of the cello and trumpet. I have never seen such an emotional game on the Conservatory scene. The final of the first part of the concert just won. I am very sorry that I did not buy the program, I can not imagine how to find what they were playing. The music was an excellent accompaniment to the verses sounding from the stage - both what was played in separate pieces and what sounded like a photon to the verses. The organ followed by Konstantin Volostnov sounded great too. Poems sounded from the scene different - from the lyrics to the passion. The actors are different in character - open and cheerful Yevgeny Strakhov, caustic and caustic Sergey Chonishvili and severe and strict Sergey Shnyrev. Yevgeny Strakhov performed poems by Boris Ryzhy, Alexander Kushner, Gennady Shpalikov. Very soft verses were chosen for the program. Sergey Shnyrev read poems of Joseph Brodsky, Bakhyt Kenzheev, Vladimir Gandelsman. The familiar lines of Brodsky sounded new. The brightest impression of the evening is the voice of Sergey Chonishvili, his manner of reading. And his dancers on the musical inserts - it was so soulful. But the choice of poems is the most provocative, especially “The Effect of Eroticism on Organisms”. In general, it was a wonderful evening, for me it is a great pleasure to plunge into the magical world of poetry and music.
BALLET, WHEN YOU WANT MORE MORE Delight, admire the beauty and elegance of the dance, its design, performance, like admiring a porcelain figurine or elegantly carved cameo. You are not only waiting for the magic, plunging into what is happening, when you don’t select patterns and details, are absorbed in his emotions, phrases, breathe and hear the dance without experiencing language barriers. At such moments, the libretto is not necessary, as you understand and speak in one language, the language of image and emotion. Coming to the Russian ballet, whether modern, classical, filled with expectations of beauty and perfection. Russian ballet, as well as Russian, is poetic, melodic and perfect. Like the Russian language, Russian ballet has such a magnificence of means of expression and description of images that no other language in the world has. As in Russian, in Russian ballet, changing sometimes “insignificant” signs, phrases acquire different meanings. See the music. Hear the breath of dance. Revel in poetics. Expectations of magic. I waited for this and enjoyed it on a succession of one-act ballets, built on the evening of modern ballets “The Architecture of Sound” of the “Ballet Moscow” Theater. A pleasant surprise was the intermission, which made it possible to comprehend what was seen in the first part with a cigarette and switch from the former to the future. I admire the skill and courage of the production team. Sometimes poised peaks seem to be unattainable, to which the director's vision should be lifted. People, their feelings and emotions, being an instrument for expressing the director's idea, are not always permanent, disrupting the artistic intent and reducing the fruits of painstaking work to nothing ... The first interlude that reminded gymnastic exercises didn’t fall in love with itself. You should not rely on modern dance, the rhythm and sequence of movements is not yet a dance, but only a drawing, maybe just a sketch of an image ... But then, according to the laws of drama, it became all addictive and fascinating. Music, detached from images, became a continuation of the movement. Not forming the beginning of the dance, but its reflection. Continuing the bends of the hips and plexus hands. Forming a special language, its melody, its sound. Sometimes you think about erotica, what should it be, how to express it? How to be reflected in the dance, not going to symbolism or gender monotony? How should express feelings penetrated by eroticism? Stage eroticism, which is formed not by tight-fitting costumes and muscular bodies, not by hints and movements, but by choreographic images. One global picture, consisting of plastics of many bodies and large emotional images. Kirill Radev bowed to classical ballet, synthetically weaving into it the irregularity of his vision. Lighting solutions that enhance the perception of the drawn images, created by artists Luis Perdigero and Rebecca Vicente Arnaldos. Slawna Martinovic, costume designer, succinctly added the finishing touches to this magnificence.
All, all, all - this is who do you think? Maybe Cova, Donkey Eeyore and Piglet? Or maybe it's Robin's family and friends?

Maybe the fact is that the mother and father are not tired of waiting for the eldest son, who is missing. They still believe and hope that he will return.
Or maybe his father secretly gnaws at the wine: did not he, the owner of the plant, produce defective parts for aircraft engines? But the missing son could suffer from this: he was a pilot ...

Or I will not forgive. This is not forgiven. Is it possible to leave the house and disappear for three years? I did not even write three words. And then come forward, as if nothing had happened?

Is not the world crazy? If he does not see that the daughter general's weakness for him has a soul, to him - just a titular counselor.
