19:00 The Flames of Paris
Boris Asafiev's ballet in two acts. 135 min. with interval. Book by Alexander Belinsky and Alexei Ratmansky on the basis of the original libretto by Nikolai Volkov and Vladimir Dmitriev. Choreographer - Alexei Ratmansky with use of the original choreography by Vasily Vainonen. Conductor: Pavel Sorokin. Costume Designer - Elena Markovskaya, Lighting Designer - Damir Ismagilov. Music dramaturgy conception - Yuri Burlaka. The Flames of Paris is a so-called "revolutionary" ballet which takes as its subject the French Revolution, including in its scenario the storming of the Tuileries Palace by the Marceliers and their victorious march on Paris. The plot is taken from the book of Felix Gras Les Marceliers. Although its setting is eighteenth-century France, it is a perfect illustration of Soviet ballet in the 1920s and 1930s, during which time there was a determined effort to find subjects in world history which reflected the more immediate situation in the Soviet Union, and to show that the October Revolution was part of more universal movements and historical events.
