MOSCOW. The premiere of the ballet "Aelita" was held at the Natalia Sats Theater.
The centenary of the revolution made its corrections to the network of broadcasting of television channels, plans for museums and exhibition plans, repertoires of different theaters. Phantasmagoria "The light way. 19. 17 "at the Moscow Art Theater," Eight "in Gubernskiy, Maxim Didenko’s project and Brusnikin’s Workshop" 10 Days That Shook the World "at the exhibition" Lyubimov and Time "in the Museum of Moscow," The Lesson of History "in Mariinsky," The Governor "in BDT, the action "The poet and revolution" in the puppet theater "Firebird". The musical theater of Natalia Sats did not stay aside. In early December, there were premieres of the futuristic ballet "Aelita".
Many dreamed about the space in the 1920s. Nikolai Tasin’s "catastrophe" in 1923 warned of the invasion of Martian zootaurs, the American Ralf Farley, the author of "Earthman on Venus", seconded his hero to the second planet from the Sun in 1924.
Whether the collective unconscious is to blame for that, whether the information about the future great confrontation between the two planets or the plot of the "Heavenly Ship" by the Dane Sophus Michaelis, who delegated Mars Cosmopolis to the international crew, was too contagious, but Alexei Tolstoy also decided to tell about the space odyssey. Engineer Mstislav Los and demobilized Red Army man Alexei Gusev went to the red planet right from the barn in the yard of the house № 11 on the Zhdanovskaya embankment. The prototype of the engineer was Jozef Dominikovich Los, a pilot, an aircraft designer, shot in 1937.
The playwright was written by the playwright Olga Pogodina-Kuzmina, the great-niece of the poet Mikhail Kuzmin. Music - Rheingold Glier, many of whose ancestors were masters in the making of strings and wind instruments. Aram Khachaturian called his teacher "a great worker". Glier taught the composition at the Moscow Conservatory, taught students of the Communist University of the Working People of the East and sponsored from the children’s colony to sing in chorus, conducted an active concert activity, and studied with pupils. Prokofiev sneered at the fact that many of the Soviet composers he knew were "direct or grandchildren" by his students.
In "Aelita" all the contradictions, misconceptions and grandiose dreams of people who found themselves in the fall of 1917 by the citizens of the new country are concentrated. Gliere’s rarely performed music, Alexei Tolstoy’s controversial novel, the spectacular scenography of Ernst Heidebrecht, the futuristic fantasies of the choreographer-director Kirill Simonov found each other. The result was a witty, bright and very modern creation.
