Conversation with Bogdan Korolk "Hoffman’s Tales" Automatic translate
Большая Конюшенная ул., 21-23
April 23, 17:30
In the space of DLT, the main fashion department store in St. Petersburg and the official partner of the 18th Dance Open season, a conversation will be held that is interesting for everyone who loves mystical and not very plots.
This year’s Dance Open playbill contains two ballets at once, connected with the name of Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann, a writer and composer, best known for twilight tales in which cozy life is continually torn with mystical horror. However, Hoffmann’s tales were often and happily retold in a more sweet spirit - and in two “Hoffmann” ballets, “Coppelia” by Leo Delibes and especially in “The Nutcracker” by Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, there are quite a few Hoffmannian.
Throughout the twentieth century, choreographers tried to return the depth and duality of the literary source to these two ballets, which both scores often resisted: they were arranged in a completely different way, and the authors pursued completely different goals when they undertook to retell famous fairy tales.
Bogdan Korolyok, a ballet critic and assistant art director of the Ural Ballet (Yekaterinburg), offers his comment on this subject.
