上海后花园The one thing that always strikes me about science fiction in those days

is that they got the space flight part wrong. For example, even in 2001: A Space Odyssey, the

The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra

pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s

hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园

It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa

上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per

formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.

The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on

e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp

ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap

abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.

Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio

n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc

ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to

the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di

mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.

In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef

ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w

hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.

Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre

ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”
