BWW Reviews: Ballet Hispanico Transforms Story BalletBWW Reviews: Ballet Hispanico Transforms Story Ballet
by Lauren Wingenroth - November 25, 2014

Ballet Hispanico ventured into full length story ballet making for the first time last Saturday at the Apollo with Gustavo Ramirez Sansano's Carmen.maquia. The sold-out, one night only event retold the story of Carmen, the free spirited and irresistible gypsy who captures the love of the army corporal Don Jose. Ramirez's minimalist retelling transformed the genre of the full-length narrative ballet, using extreme abstraction and masked movement to attempt what is usually achieved by more elaborate means.

BWW Reviews: The Mikhailovsky Ballet's THE FLAMES OF PARISBWW Reviews: The Mikhailovsky Ballet's THE FLAMES OF PARIS
by Barnett Serchuk - November 24, 2014

Remember high school history. Some of us loved it; others hated it. Best of all, there were the teachers. They tried to educate us about British royalty, Swedish neutrality, or crumbling Hapsburg empires. How I wish they had known The Flames of Paris back then. Just think, in less than two hours we'd have known all about the French Revolution. While there were plenty of Civil War movies-just in case we needed some brain reinforcement for our exams-the French Revolution was a very deep ocean away. I know we had all seen Norma Shearer in Marie Antoinette or some version of A Tale of Two Cities. But that's as far as most of us got to a real understanding of French history. Besides, they spoke a strange language, and in those days you didn't want to be caught being bi-lingual. (more...)
