Aleko by Sergei Rachmaninoff( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in Russian and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A double bill of two Russian operatic masterpieces. Legendary bass Evgeny Nesterenko stars in the title role of Aleko (1892), an early work of Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943), written when the composer was still a student at the Moscow Conservatory. By contrast, Kaschey the Immortal (sometimes called Kaschey the Deathless) is very much a mature work of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov (1844-1908). It was the composer's 12th opera, and premiered in 1902

Toute la magie du Ballet Kirov dans le plus féérique des ballets de Prokofiev! Entre inclusions d'images à la Disney ou à la Jean-Christophe Averty, grand ballet à la russe, persiflage et autodérision, sans oublier une bonne dose d'humour, voilà une vision fort alléchante de ce Cendrillon de Prokofiev selon le Ballet Kirov (aussi connu sous son ancien nom de Ballet du Théâtre Mariinsky), qui commanda le ballet à Prokofiev. Curieusement, c'est le Ballet du Bolchoï qui en fit la création en 1945. La version du Kirov ne vit le jour qu'en 1946 à Leningrad : c'est cette chorégraphie d'origine qui vous est présentée dans ce très beau film de 1985. Le chorégraphe Constantin Sergueïev signe lui-même cette joyeuse réalisation cinématographique, et en profite pour s'en donner à cœur joie en laissant libre cours à toutes les fantaisies et effets visuels : ballet de douze lutins pour les douze coups de minuit, balayés par un gigantesque balancier, jeux de miroirs, maquillages grotesques pour la vilaine marâtre, jeux-de-mains jeux-de-vilains de la part de ses deux méchantes filles, étoiles brillant au firmament duquel descend la bonne fée, décors somptueux, costumes à tomber à la renverse, rien ne manque à ce festival d'images et de couleurs. Au plan danse pure, il nous faut naturellement mentionner le principal rôle, Cendrillon, tenu par la grande ballerine russe Gabriella Komleva - retirée depuis la fin des années 80 - qui apporta beaucoup de vie à la chorégraphie. Un petit bémol : la bande-son est correcte, sans plus. Avec les interprètes M. Daunaev, A. Kashirina, V. Onoshko, L. Galinskaya
