A program commemorating Pablo Picasso as an artistic collaborator with Serge Diaghilev's Ballets Russes. The first part of the program, The story of a marriage uses Picasso's portrait of his ballerina wife Olga Koklova as a departure point for discussions of his designs for the ballets Parade, Le tricorne, Pulcinella, Mercure, and Le train bleu. The second part consists of reconstructions of two ballets, recorded in performance by the Paris Opéra Ballet at the Palais Garnier. Between 1917 and 1962, Picasso was involved in creating the designs for nine ballets. Le Train Bleu (The Blue Train) dates from 1924 and Le Tricorne (The Three-Cornered Hat) from 1919. These two historic ballets, created originally by Sergei Diaghilev, have been revived by the Paris Opera Ballet. Le Train Bleu is an operetta dansé of a chic and flippant society. Jean Cocteau, who wrote the scenario, mockingly celebrates the cult of open air life, fine bodies and sport. The dances are inspired by golf, tennis, swimming and acrobatics. Le Tricorne is Spanish from start to finish. Picasso, a native of Andalusia, created sets, costumes, and a stage curtain, which evokes the atmosphere of the ballet by means of a typically Spanish scene. The story, told with humour and warmth, is of a miller's wife, her jealous husband and a senile magistrate by whom she is pursued

The Sleeping beauty by Peter Ilich Tchaikovsky( Visual )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Sleeping Beauty remains, as Rudolf Nureyev often called it, the 'ballet of ballets'. It is the most accomplished and the most brilliant, as well as one of the most spectacular of the 19th century, and the most representative of the 'noble' style of classical dancing. Rudolf Nureyev's version, which he created for the Opéra Ballet in 1989, was recorded at the Opéra Bastille in 1999, in a new production (sets and costumes) created by his faithful collaborators, Ezio Frigerio and Franca Squarciapino, who had already produced Swan Lake, Romeo and Juliet and La Bayadère"--Container

Le songe de Médée( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in French and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A creation by the choreographer Angelin Preljocaj for the Opera national de Paris Ballet in 2004. The most horrible crimes, fratricide and infanticide, are embodied by the Medee interpreted by the étoile Marie-Agnès Gillot. For his third creation at the Opéra de Paris, Preljocaj was inspired by Médée: not the one we find in the mythological stories, but the ones who make the contemporary headlines. How could we possibly understand this woman's sacrilege if we don't interpret it as the terrible willing of stopping belonging to the human kind? The score was written by the Venitian composer Mauro Lanza, born in 1975. It was ordered by the Paris Opera and the Ircam-Centre Pompidou, where the composer is in residence

Balanchine in Paris( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in French and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Balanchine in Paris is the most recent film in the collection, Etoiles pour l'example, by the distinguished French film maker, Dominique Delouche. Throughout his life, the Russian-born choreographer, more usually associated with New York City Ballet which he founded with Lincoln Kirstein in 1934, kept close contact with France, the country where his first creations were staged and where he so nearly became the artistic director of the Paris Opera Ballet. He would even choose French perfumes for each of his ballerinas and always insisted upon having a French ballerina in his company. In his film, two of these almost legendary figures, Violette Verdy and Ghislaine Thesmar, are shown coaching younger dancers at the Palais Garnier in Paris the roles that they themselves were taught by the great master, for nearly 30 of his works, including ballets created especially for the company, or re-staged for the French dancers, form part of the repertory of the Paris Opera Ballet today. Indeed, the film opens with shots of Thesmar and Michael Denard interpreting the grand adage from the second movement of Le Palais de Cristal, created for the company in 1947, and now danced as Symphony in C, before superimposing shots of Isabelle Ciaravola and Hervé Moreau being coached in the same pas de deux by Ghislaine Thesmar herself."--Review by Patricia Boccadoro, http://www.culturekiosque.com
