"Visually rich"
The Washington Post
 
Jewels is "a marvelously entertaining compilation… thought provoking and crowd pleasing, deeply traditional and utterly modern."
The New York Times
 
For five performances as part of its spring 2014 engagement, New York City Ballet performs Balanchine's 1967 Jewels–a full-evening masterpiece in three acts showcasing the range of styles that Balanchine commanded. Emeralds recalls the 19th-century dances of the French Romantics with music from Gabriel Fauré's Pelléas et Mélisande and Shylock. Rubies sends its dancers racing across the stage like lightning to Igor Stravinsky's jazz-inflected Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra. And Diamonds, performed to Tchaikovsky's majestic Symphony No. 3, venerates the regality of Balanchine's classical Russian heritage.
 
For two performances, the company also brings a thrilling program of works by contemporary choreographers. Christopher Wheeldon's Soirée Musicale's youthful cast entices you to dance the night away under a blanket of stars. Justin Peck's acclaimed Year of the Rabbit highlights its corps de ballet as it forms intricate and architectural patterns to a classical orchestration of Sufjan Stevens's electronica. Alexei Ratmansky's Namouna, A Grand Divertissement, with seven featured performers and more than 20 supporting cast members, abstracts a comical 19th-century story ballet into a highly stylized series of animated and athletic dances full of dramatic texture.

RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE – Warrnambool The Lighthouse Theatre

RUSSIAN NATIONAL BALLET THEATRE – Warrnambool The Lighthouse Theatre
Event on 2013-10-27 19:30:00
The Russian National Ballet Theatre returns for a tour of full-length classical performance of The Nutcracker in over 20 cities across Australia from September.

With more than 50 ballet dancers, the Russian National Ballet Theatre has toured the USA, China, Italy, France, Belgium, Spain, Portugal, Guatemala, Poland, South Korea and Japan transforming Russian Ballet.

One of the most extravagant theatrical events of all time, the original St Petersburg staging of The Nutcracker in 1890 was a remarkable illustration of the Russian Imperial style at its peak. It is known as one of the superior Russian National Ballet Theatre’s productions in the modern era. Joined by a huge cast in a fairytale setting, the, current staging is also directed by Evgeny Amosov and accompanied by a glorious Tchaikovsky score. This version of The Nutcracker has all the elements of an enduring fairy tale: adventure, fantasy, good versus evil, and of course, love.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre was founded with support of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation. The basis for the creation of the theatre was the necessity of promising young theatre with high creative potential, both classical and contemporary. The theatre’s repertoire includes not only classical performances such as Sleeping Beauty, Scotland Suite, Don Quixote and Gala Concert, but also modern ballets set to the music of Mozart, Bach, Ravel and others.

Artistic Director Evgeny Amosov, graduated from the Perm Academy of choreography and then joined the Ekaterinburg Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet as a principal dancer. He is also a prize-winner of Russian and International choreography contests of ballet-masters and ballet dancers. In 1988 Amosov was awarded the title Honored artist of Russia and in 1990 was the leading solo dancer of the state theatre Russian ballet.From 1993 till 1998 he studied at the Russian Academy of theatrical arts. In 2001 Amosov co-founded the company Russian National Ballet Theatre.

The Russian National Ballet Theatre is a cut above many of its rivals.

Their gracefulness, perfect edges and lines demonstrate why the ballet, like opera, is such a powerful art form. You can feel the emotion in your seat without anyone saying a word that you can understand.
