A major element of the production is the 32-person chorus under Andrew Whitfield. Not only did they sing with gusto, they also danced and set the tone for the second act, in Lillas Pastias’ tavern with a sequence of clapping and foot-stomping. This was choreographed by Raphael Boumaila. He also created a ballet sequence featuring Gabriel Mata and April Shippen in front of the curtain during the overture, which evoked the story of the opera red shoe dance contact. The 27-voice children’s choir vocalized excellently in the first act’s busy public square in front of the cigarette factory..
The 44-piece orchestra produced symphonic soundscapes that conveyed the characters and the narrative. Maestro Joseph Marcheso succeeded in pairing his instrumentalists with his signers through a wide range of tempi red shoe dance contact. Carmen owes much of its worldwide success to the naturalism and humanity inherent in the music as well as the libretto by Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halevy. It was really the first opera to deal with modern life and working people. It used a vernacular music of everyday with direct dramatic expression. It also brought out raw emotion, violence and sexuality more than romantic love. Small wonder that it has never been very long between performances since that fateful opening night in 1875..
In 1940, San Francisco Ballet became the first U.S. company to have the complete “Swan Lake” in its repertory, one of the gems handed down from 19th-century tsarist Russia red shoe dance contact. In 1988 the company’s new artistic director, Helgi Tomasson, introduced his own interpretation by resurrecting much of the venerated 1895 version by Marius Petipa/Lev Ivanov. In 2009 Tomasson overhauled the classic with the assistance of Broadway designer Jonathan Fensom and “modernized” the fairy tale..
For this latest version, Tomasson felt it necessary to add back story in the form of a prologue, with the intention of making the tale intelligible, and ensuring that it belonged to the swan-woman Odette. The prologue, however, almost entirely cements this as a contest between two men — the evil sorcerer Von Rothbart, who molests Odette and transforms her into a swan, and Prince Siegfried, who steals her heart red shoe dance contact. These two guys (Von Rothbart resembles Lord Byron crossed with a vampire from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) battle each other through the woman, who is a prisoner of them both. Add in the production’s visual brashness, which injects endless distractions and unintentional humor, and it’s a wonder the ballet has survived..
But survive it does. Despite being bleached of mystery, despite the disturbing gender politics and the camp elements in costume and decor — — including Busby Berkeley-style feather caps, a gold staircase reminiscent of Liberace and a sci-fi moon — — this remains Odette/Odile’s story. On Friday, it was Yuan Yuan Tan playing Odette, with Tiit Helimets as Prince Siegfried, who was entrusted with communicating the trapped young woman’s plight red shoe dance contact. Tan, who has been with the company since 1995, is a physically glorious dancer with arms like tendrils, feet like railroad spikes and hips that are both supple and steely. No one can extend a leg as high and then tuck it in with such pristine geometry as she. Although she is foremost a legato dancer, Tan can also jolt into action when given roles such as the devilish Odile, Odette’s destructive alter ego..
