RAYMONDA GRAND PAS CLASSIQUE HONGROIS
Choreography: Marius Petipa
Music: Alexander Glazunov
Raymonda was created by Marius Petipa in 1898. It contains some of his most spectacular choreography and a magnificent score by Alexander Glazunov, full of spirited rhythms and lilting waltzes.
Raymonda Grand Pas Classique opens with a celebratory Waltz followed by the knightly Entree and Grand Adage (Pas De Dix). The excerpts consist of a lively female Pas De Quatre and a strong Mens’ Dance, a variety of female and male variations followed by Raymonda’s and Jean de Brienne’s variation to celebrate the couple’s wedding.
The act concludes with a Grand Coda Finale.
Choreography: Choong Wan Chin
Music: Georges Bizet, Rodion Shchedrin
This interpretation of ‘Carmen’ not only retells the story we are familiar with but is overlaid with another, more symbolic level. It can be seen as a struggle of opposites where each attempts to impose its will on the other with love as the tool. Carmen is the free spirit, fatally attractive with devil-may-care callousness while Jose is the upright officer who goes by the book. Jose, as Shakespeare said of another love-struck hero, ‘loved not wisely but too well’ so that his demand for complete devotion chokes Carmen’s exuberance. In the end, both attain their goals in an ironic twist - she can belong to no one else ever again except Jose even as her spirit is set free.
