Dancer830 Posted July 17, 2011 Report Share Posted July 17, 2011 I'm not sure if this is the correct forum, feel free to move if necessary. I just saw ABT (Gillian, Paloma, Marcelo, Cory) perform The Bright Stream in L.A. and it was wonderful! I had never heard of it and was curious so I grabbed my mother and off we went (dd is at SI). What a delightful afternoon! This ballet is relatively "new" in ballet terms, having been created in Russia in the 1930's (1932, I think). It is a comedic ballet, however it is based in classical techniques/styles, and there was plenty of it. The music is by Shostakovich, Choreography by Ratmansky. On iTunes, in music it is under Shostakovich and called the Limpid Stream, I don't know why. There are also a few excerpts on YouTube. In any case, I just wanted to share that it is definitely worth going to see should it pass through your area. Watching Paloma Herrera and Gillian Murphy dance side-by-side in unison was just thrilling! Quote Link to comment
