1. Wagner: Der Ring des Nibelungen - Symphonic Excerpts
2. Alexander Ekman & Mikael Karlsson: Play
DescriptionA sparkling personality on the contemporary dance scene, Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman has been invited for the first time to work with the dancers of the Paris Opera Ballet. His language, both visceral and tinged with humor, combining theatricality, and classical and contemporary vocabulary alike, perfectly resonates with the incredible versatility and stage presence of the Ballet: the result is Play, a piece that evokes the world of childhood and its careless pleasures. But beyond pure entertainment, this performance contemplates the meaning and the importance of play when we become adults. Best known for the spectacular quality of his pieces and their dreamlike imagery, like for instance his Midsummer Nights Dream, the Swedish choreographer fills the stage of the Palais Garnier with an entrancing energy. The metallic structures, dancers suspended in space, and the elevations are but a few of the powerful images that will strike the audiences imagination! For this new creation, Alexander Ekman worked with his acolyte composer Mikael Karlsson, but also with a talented team of instrumentalists not often seen on the stage of the Palais Garnier, among which gospel singer Callie Day, or the incredible percussionist Adelade Ferriere. An unexpected performance, carried along by enticing rhythms and communicative energy!
3. Paris Opera Ballet Box Set
Bringing together four seminal works, this attractive collection offers a perfect introduction to the world's oldest national ballet company.
Jewels This alluring, abstract ballet, a triptych in which each piece sparkles with the brilliance of a precious stone, is a lyric tribute to women and to the cities of the great dance schools.
La Dame aux camlias Based on the novel that also inspired the stories of Verdi's La Traviata and Hollywood's Moulin Rouge, Neumeier has created a riveting dance drama which unfolds ingeniously through love, passion and danger. Chopin's ravishing music combines with the lavish production, filmed live at the Palais Garnier.
Prokofiev: Cinderella Rudolf Nureyev's colourful, movie-star production retains the classic Perrault story but sets it in America during the difficult years of the Great Depression in the 1930s and 1940s. Agns Letestu stars as Cinderella who, living with her alcoholic father, tyrannical stepmother and two spiteful stepsisters, dreams of escape and stardom in Hollywood.
Tchaikovsky: Swan Lake Agns Letestu, a feminine and warm Odette, and Jos Martinez, a convincing, pale, vulnerable prince Siegfried, are the stars of this deeply passionate, dream version of Swan Lake. Rudolf Nureyev's interpretation of Tchaikovsky's lyrical ballet, far from being a clichd stereotype of this celebrated masterpiece, is an expos of astonishingly powerful and recognisable human emotions.
Balanchine: Jewels; Neumeier: La dame aux camlias; Nureyev: Cinderella; Swan Lake
"A gem of dazzling brilliance." (The Independent - Jewels)
"It is open to doubt whether even Balanchine has ever created a work in which the inspiration was so sustained, the invention so imaginative, or the concept so magnificent." (The New York Times - Jewels)
"... a glorious achievement, beautifully captured on DVD under the expert direction of Thomas Grimm. It is also a traditional narrative ballet at its best: the romantic, tragic love story is eloquently told, the costumes are gorgeous, the dancers excellent, Chopin's music is luminous and Neumeier's choreography is as ever beautifully original yet purely classical in its discreet but stylish elegance. If you like the great classical ballets of the past, like Giselle or Swan Lake ... then you will adore John Neumeier's La Dame aux Camlias. I simply loved it and would recommend it whether one is a hopeless romantic or not!" (Musicweb International - La Dame aux Camlias)
"... a musical fantasy overflowing with vitality." (Le Figaro - Cinderella)
"Readers used to traditional views of the ballet should see this gripping newcomer." (The Penguin Guide - Swan Lake)Cast
