Arts Calendar / October 19 / Ballet
12:00, 19:00. Ballet by John Cranko in three acts to music by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. 155 min. Sets and Costumes: Jürgen Rose. Choreographic supervision: Reid Anderson. Ballet Masters: Agneta Valcu, Victor Valcu. Lighting Designer: Steen Bjarke. Music Director: Pavel Sorokin. Rights owner: Dieter Graefe. Arrangement and Orchestration: Kurt-Heinz Stolze. The score has been made available by Adrian Thome Musikverlag, Munich. John Cranko's interpretation of Pushkin's verse-novel contains some of ballet's most emotionally charged moments, set to stirring music by Tchaikovsky. Onegin displays all of Cranko's genius as a narrative choreographer - within a tight dramatic structure, Cranko creates finely drawn characters who are changed by the conflicts that they face. Cranko first discovered Alexander Pushkin's verse-novel Eugene Onegin when he choreographed the dances for Tchaikovsky's opera of the same name in 1952. He first proposed a ballet based on Pushkin's story to the Royal Opera House board in the 1960s, but it was turned down, and he pursued the idea when he moved to Stuttgart. The Stuttgart Ballet premiered the work in 1965. The Royal Ballet did not present the work until 2001. The choreography for his ballet includes a wide range of styles, including folk, modern, ballroom and acrobatic.
