Don Quixote (Kitri's wedding) : a ballet in three acts by L Minkus( Visual )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Set in sunny Spain, Don Quixote has always been popular in icy Russia. Choreographed by Mikhail Baryshnikov after Petipa and Gorsky for American Ballet Theatre, it is again a pretext for marvelous dancing. The plot is simple: in Barcelona, young Kitri and her lover Basilio must outwit her father, who wants her to marry the rich Gamache. Kitri's incidental protector is Don Quixote, who sees the feminine ideal in all the women he meets. The path of the plotting lovers travels through a tavern, a gypsy camp, a windmill attack, a fake suicide, and finally a festive wedding. Baryshnikov both pays homage to and revitalizes one of the most popular and joyful ballets in the surviving Russian imperial ballet's repertory

Nederlands Dans Theater celebrates Jiří Kylián by Jiri Kylian( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video presents three early ballets by of one of the most important choreographers of the late 20th century, Prague born Jirí Kylián. The first two pieces are set to music by Igor Stravinsky. "Svadebka" is Kylián's version of "Les Noces," wherein a young bride and groom become betrothed through the workings of matchmakers, bid farewell to their parents, and are married in an ecstatic wedding ceremony. "Symphony of Psalms" is an ensemble piece, turning grim impersonality into a celebration of the spirituality of being, the glory of humanity and love. "Torso," set to music by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu, is a sexy, steamy look at two lost lovers--a sultry ambivalent woman, and an anguished man. It is unclear whether she is real or a figment of his imagination, or what role she plays in his distress
