Description

Balletomanes still think of Andris Liepa as a wonderful dancer whose physique and pure line perfectly complemented that of his former Bolshoi partner, Nina Ananiashvili. The two superstars, who won the hearts of New York ballet lovers during the Bolshoi’s 1987 visit to the city, eventually parted ways, but were last seen together in NYC in the Kirov’s presentation of the Lavrovsky Romeo and Juliet in 1992.

Andris went on to create stunning film productions of three of the famous Ballet Russes productions: Petrushka, Scheherazade, and The Firebird. What Liepa has captured is the spirit of these ballets. (Fokine, a dance reformer, left Russia and achieved fame in Western Europe, where he choreographed for Serge Diaghilev’s legendary Ballets Russes. His works were ignored by Soviet authorities, and some–like Scheherazade— reportedly had never been seen by Bolshoi or Kirov audiences prior to Liepa’s production.) Ion Concert Media is proud to offer these three magnificent films for live concert screenings through an arrangement with the Liepa Foundation. For ensembles without the time or resources to involve a live dance troupe in their performance, these films offer a remarkable alternative rich with history and artistry.
