The famous ballet "Marco Spada" will be broadcast on August 26th as a part of the Summer Theatre Festival!
The ballet ''Marco Spada" was first staged at the Opera Rome in 1981. It was choreographed by the French ballet master Pierre Lacotte for Rudolph Nureyev and Ghislaine Thesmar. This season it was revived at the Bolshoi Theatre; there is the complicated choreography, numerous changes of the set, fascinating pantomime scenes, the balls, the dragoons and the bandits. This is an elegant plot-based ballet, the ballet of "cape and sword"; missing this production would be an unforgettable error.
The world ballet star and the acknowledged king of the dance, David Hallberg, gives the brilliant performances of the title role. He creates an exciting image of Marco Spada, the "honorable" bandit and the loving father. The cast also stars Evgenia Obraztsova, Olga Smirnova, Semyon Chudin and Igor Tsvirko.
To realize just how skillful David Hallberg is and to learn a bit about his creative career, we suggest to watch the video fragment from Vadim Vernik's program: http://youtu.be/xbEbHOFW_lE
