Description
Based on Prosper Mérimée's tragic story, the deeply symbolic and overtly sensual Carmen Suite Ballet premiered at the Bolshoi on April 20, 1967. Prima ballerina assoluta Maya Plisetskaya always dreamed of dancing the role of Carmen. She even approached Shostokovich about creating a ballet score, but he demurred out of respect for Bizet's celebrated opera. Her husband Rodion Shchedrin eventually agreed to provide the music after seeing some of her initial rehearsals with choreographer Alberto Alonso. His Carmen Suite Ballet was a perfect complement to Alonso's choreography and, in its theatricality, a showcase for Plisetskaya's considerable gifts. Her Don Jose is the brilliant dramatic dancer Nikolai Fadeyechev, while Sergei Radchenko dances the role of the bullfighter Escamillo. Bonus segments feature Plisetskaya in The Dying Swan, Raymonda Variations, and a Bach Prelude.
