The Spirit of Dance: The Boston Ballet Production of "Sleeping Beauty" [electronic resource]

Loading...
Discussion of the Boston Ballet's production of The Sleeping Beauty, staged by Anna Marie Holmes. Parts of the discussion refer to Holmes's first staging of the ballet for the company in 1993. Holmes summarizes her own experience in the role of Princess Aurora, gives a synopsis of the ballet, and describes how her staging differs from Petipa's original. Philip Jordan and Amy Persky Gross describe the company's purchase and refurbishing of the scenery, costumes, and wigs designed by David Walker for the Royal Ballet's 1977 production. Video excerpts recorded on location depict the Boston Ballet's costume shop ; its wig room (with Paula Kelly as guide), scenes of dancers in studio rehearsals, and performance footage.

Ballet Boyz [electronic resource]: Rise and Fall

Loading...
A great quartet in residence at a packed Sadler's Wells - three dancers (Sylvie Guillem, Michael Nunn, William Trevitt) and a choreographer, all at the top of their world-class game. Russell Maliphant's choreography is a dense mixture of influences from ballet to martial forms. As the dance builds, the thread of the choreography binds the trio tighter and the high, precious balances that toss Sylvie Guillem to further and further extremes create a mesmerising scenario of combat and trust.
