performance presentation

The ballet audiences are perfectly familiar with this German ballet fairy tale to music by Tchaikovsky, about Prince Siegfried torn between his love for Odette turned into a swan and her fiery opposite Odile, who is thrown into his arms by a devious wizard. After many productions of the traditional version of Swan Lake in Warsaw, Krzysztof Pastor and librettist Paweł Chynowski decided to move the story to the reality of the tsarist court in the final years of Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s life. Respecting the spirit of the Romantic original, they drew on a Polish theme, a true story that happened to the Russian heir to the throne, Nicholas. For years, the tsarevich was faithful to his youthful love for Princess Alix of Hesse, but Tsar Alexander III did not approve. Through his father, Nicholas met and fell in love with Polish ballerina Matylda Krzesińska (Mathilde Kschessinska). He was possessed by his passion, leading to a well-known social scandal at the court in St. Petersburg on the eve of Nicholas II’s ascension to the throne. Despite the changed libretto, the show retains the most precious ‘swan’ sequences from the academic choreography by Lev Ivanov and Marius Petipa.

performance presentation

“I have never attempted to explore what makes a marriage truly happy. However, I think that two people should match each other like a pair of horses having: an even gait, an even turn, equal fire - then the journey together is pleasant and far less of a drag. But when one is swift, and the other lazy, one is soft, and the other hardy, when one is pulling while the other is jumping – then the devil may take it!”

         

Here is Count Fredro at his best! Love affairs were one of his favourite themes. The lightness and zest with which he presented them, inspired choreographers of the oncoming premiere Fredriana at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera. Fredro's comedies, combined with Moniuszko's humorous yet mysterious, lyrical yet dramatic, music, turn out to be a perfect duo. The audience will have a chance to see this duo in both parts of the ballet evening at the Teatr Wielki - National Opera.

performance presentation

The choreographerToer van Schayk: The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, which will be premiered by the Polish National Ballet in 2011, is a highly successful version of the tale created by me and Wayne Eagling. It was first performed by Het Nationale Ballet in Amsterdam in 1996. I had originally set the action in Amsterdam. However, for this production in Poland I adapted the setting to 19th century Warsaw. Although the ballet is usually known as The Nutcracker, we wished to honour E.T.A. Hoffmann’s original tale and used the original title The Nutcracker and the Mouse King. I was delighted to find out that Hoffmann had lived in Warsaw, and in all likelihood had conceived the tale there around 1806. Therefore, I felt justified in including Hoffmann, with his famous tomcat Murr, among the guests at the St. Nicholas party, at the home of Hoffmann’s friend Julius Eduard Hitzig, another historical Varsovian figure. Not only the decor, but also parts of the choreography have been adapted or newly created for the Polish production. The Russian ballet scholar and composer Boris Asafiev wrote about The Nutcracker: “It is a rare artistic phenomenon, a symphony of childhood, or rather of the transition period, when the yearnings of a yet unknown adolescence make one restless, but the habits of childhood have not yet been left behind.”
