Цитата:

Dancers and musicians from one of Russia's most famous opera and ballet companies are on a rare visit to China. Performers from the Mariinsky in St. Petersburg are playing at the newly opened National Grand Theatre in Beijing. They'll be the first foreign artists to play at this unique opera house.

About 500 artists will perform over the next two weeks. At least 30 thousand people will see classics such as "Prince Igor" and "Swan Lake". Tickets were sold long before opening night.

The Director of Mariinsky theatre, Valery Gergiev, said his company had promised to perform at the National Grand Theatre ten years ago.

Also known as the National Centre for the Performing Arts, it was created by French architect Paul Andreu and is one of the most significant cultural projects in China in recent years.

The titanium-and-glass construction is almost 200 thousand square metres in size and seats up to 6,500 people.

China's New National Center for Performing Arts Opens in Beijing
By Matthew Westphal. 24 Dec 2007

Цитата:
China's gleam ng new National Center for the Performing Arts, a futuristic dome made of glass and titanium shimmering in the midst of a large reflecting pool, hosted its first public concert over the weekend in Beijing.

The Dec. 22 program, televised live throughout the nation, featured two orchestras, the China National Symphony and the Beijing Symphony, with two conductors and four choirs taking part. Four young violinists, all recent Paganini Competition winners, shared a concerto. The guest soloist of honor was pianist Yundi Li, who has a major international career and a recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon.

The Center, designed by French architect Paul Andreu, is one of several large new architectural showpieces commissioned by the Chinese government in time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The complex includes three performance spaces: a 2,416-seat opera house, a 2,017-seat concert hall and a 1,040-seat theater. The total cost of construction is more than $330 million.

The first foreign company to take the NCPA stage is that of the Mariinsky Theater of St. Petersburg (still marketed in the U.S. under its Soviet-era name, the Kirov Opera and Ballet). Conductor Valery Gergiev and his forces begin a 12-days-of-Christmas residency tomorrow with Borodin's opera Prince Igor; other repertoire they've programmed for Beijing includes the ballets Swan Lake, Le Corsaire and George Balanchine's Jewels.

Цитата:

China's new National Grand Theatre formally opens the Opera Hall Wednesday night. The world renowned, Marrinsky Theatre Opera Company from St. Petersburg, accompanied by the Kirov Symphony Orchestra and Ballet group, has the honour of the opening night stage.

The Mariinsky Theater Opera Company will perform Alexander Borodin's medieval classic, "Prince Igor." The production was chosen to accentuate the complex's lush, dazzling interiors and sophisticated acoustics. The production is under the direction of Valery Gergiev, one of the world's leading conductors. He became the first foreign visiting conductor at New York's Metropolitan Opera in over a century.

The Mariinsky Theatre Opera Company will play 11 consecutive nights. Prince Igor is followed by Swan Lake, Balanchine's Jewels and Le Corsaire. The productions were all chosen to underscore the high standards of its artistic mission.

Цитата:

A dream that began a decade ago comes true today. Ten years ago, Valery Gergiev promised to perform in the National Grand Theater in Beijing. Today, he fulfills his pledge, bringing prestige to the newly opened performing arts center by gracing its stage.

It is the Mariinsky Theater's first time to leave St Petersburg over the holidays, as well as the first time for its ballet and opera groups to perform simultaneously in one theatre. Gergiev and the Mariinsky Theater are the first international troupe to appear in the theater's first international performance season.

Gergiev and more than 500 performers - comprising the largest group the National Grand Theater has yet received - flew into the capital on December 22 to celebrate the opening of the theater and give Sino-Russian relations a shot in the arm.

They would perform their best works, including Prince Igor, Swan Lake, Jewels and The Pirates during a two-week tour of China.

Under Gergiev's leadership as artistic director and chief conductor, Mariinsky has become one of the most celebrated and recorded opera companies in the world. Gergiev says the National Grand Theater could become symbolic of China.

Throughout his years of dedication to the Mariinsky Theatre, Gergiev has focused on making the Mariinsky Opera Company the best in the world. And he believes that in order to do this, the group should cultivate more Chinese cultural elements.

Pirates is based on a long poem by the famous British poet Byron. The story is set during the time Turkey invaded Greece in the 1820s.

When a storm ravaged the Aegean Sea, a young girl from a fisherman's family named Dollah saves the pirate leader Condrad. However, Dollah is captured by a human trafficker named Ahmet. She about to be sold to a Turkish viceroy when Conrad and his crew, disguised as Arabian merchants, save her and the other girls forced into servitude. It's little surprise then when Conrad and Dollah fall in love, but the pirate's partner is overcome with jealousy and begins plotting against him. But in the end, the heroes victor and sail off into the sunset.

Kevin NG reviews Mariinsky two-week engagement at the spanking new Grand National Theater:

Цитата:

The Mariinsky Theater, bringing a total of 500 musicians, dancers, and singers, opened its two-week season at the Grand National Theater on Christmas Day (Dec. 25) with Borodin’s opera “Prince Igor” conducted by maestro Valery Gergiev. This was followed by “Swan Lake” on Dec. 31, led by the two young Mariinsky ballet stars Leonid Sarafanov and Alina Somova. The Mariinsky dancers had arrived in Beijing just the day before from Germany straight from another tour to Baden Baden, and celebrated this New Year outside Russia for a change.

‘Le Corsaire’,
Jewels: ‘Emeralds’, ‘Rubies’, ‘Diamonds’

January 2008
Beijing, National Theatre

Цитата:
We saw Jewels on Jan.4 and Le Corsaire last night (Jan. 5.)
Kevin says he liked Viktoria Tereshkina's dancing in Diamond much more than Somova's, but I enjoyed Alina's more. Viktoria's dancing was more fluid and dignified, but I don't I think she was in her best form in Diamond, and the role seemed not to be very well suited for her style. But Viktoria was just brilliant last night when she danced Medora.She acted very good too. I guess she must like the role very much. >>ballet.magazine
