19:00 Ivan the Terrible
Ballet in two acts to music by Sergei Prokofiev. 140 min. Libretto by Yuri Grigorovich. Music Director: Vassily Sinaisky. Music: excerpts from music to the film Ivan the Terrible, Russian Overture, cantata Alexander Nevsky, The Third Symphony Mikhail Chulaki’s version and additional music excerpts. Yuri Grigorovich about his ballet: "The ballet world believe that Prokofiev belongs to ballet. And my production was being brought into existence quite naturally, despite seeming contradictions between the central character and the essence of ballet itself. There were no doubts whatsoever that this music can bring the stage dance to life. My conception was based primarily on music, not on something else — stories from Russian history, characters’ biographies, their psychological characteristics, folk “background” and the like, assigned to or even imposed on me by numerous ballet analysts. No — and I will repeat again and again — it was only Prokofiev’s music. My concept started with it forty years ago and it is still confined to music now".
