Video: an unusual production of Swan Lake by the Great Chinese State Circus...
Before the jokesters get here let me say their athleticism and flexibility is very striking. It’s not as elegant as the last performance of a Russian company I saw at SMU, still, not bad at all. But I surmise these are circus performers by trade so...
Thanks for posting that. It’s not every day you get to see a dancer simulate a flying swan upside down!
I loved how beautiful she looked flying but, I’m sick of Chinese acrobatics and Cirque de Sole’.
Would like to see Von Rothbart destroy this production
We have been entreated to far too much of this with our local ballet, San Jose.
I’m also biased that the most beautiful portrayal of Swan Lake was by Karen Gabay and Raymond Rodriguez. They were born to perform together and Ms. Gabay has the most artful storytelling with just a particular look and the details of how she placed even her fingertips, expressing the embodiment of any character she played.
that is not a chinese audience
still I thought it was very cool and difficult
