The Bolshoi Theater of Russia on Thursday will show its last premiere
The Bolshoi Theater of Russia on Thursday will show its last premiere of the season and the last premiere on its main stage before the closing of the Theater. That will be an evening of one-act ballets by outstanding choreographer Leonid Myasin. These ballets by a graduate of the Moscow Ballet School, Leonid Myasin, who left Russia in 1914, have been staged for the first time by the Bolshoi. The reporters were told about it at the presentation ceremony of the coming premiere on Wednesday. For the first time Myasin's ballets, which are shown in the theaters all over the world, will be performed by Russian dancers, and for the first time the Russian spectators will have a chance to enjoy the ballets by the outstanding choreographer who determined the development of the world's ballet art in the 20th century. According to the art director of the Bolshoi ballet, Alexei Ratmansky, Leonid Myasin used folklore and comedy elements in his ballets, a feature very typical of the Moscow school. At the opening night the spectators will see three ballets of different styles and made in different years: "The Cocked Hat" to the music of de Falla (design by world famous Picasso), "The Omens" to the music of Tchaikovsky's 5th Symphony, and "Paris Mary-Making" to the music of Offenbach. In the Bolshoi the ballets were restored by Myasin's son, Lorca Myasin, who also took part in the presentation ceremony of the coming premiere. "It is a great joy for me to come to Russia and a great privilege to stage the ballets in Bolshoi," he said. "In restoring the ballets of my father I tried not to miss any nuance or detail of what he had taught me."
