Known as one of the most popular of the Ballet Russes, the production Petrushka, choreographed by Michel Fokine with music composed by Igor Stravinsky, presents an unconventional approach to ballet in the early 1900’s. Fokine combined his ballet experience and knowledge of the dramatic arts to design a highly stimulating production that’s influence has allowed many dance academies to continually perform. The four scene ballet tells the story of love and jealousy between three puppets at a fair in St. Petersburg, Russia. Petrushka professes his love to the Ballerina, but she rejects him for the Moor instead, initiating jealousy. Provoking the Moor to a battle, Petrushka is finally killed by the Moor’s sword.
The stage design gives the impression of the characters being in two separate rooms, the positioning of blocks and pillars helps again to demonstrate this. This intricate attention to detail enables the performance to be compared so similarly to the movie adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic, although the ‘big screen’ enables more room for a fast change in setting and shots, Rourke does a phenomenal job trying to create this illusion which works so brilliantly. The night before the wedding or you could refer to it as the ‘stag and hen do’ was an unexpected twist that the audience definitely did not see coming. Again, the revolving stage was used to represent the divide between the women and the men and to compensate for the lack of space that the stage could carry. This incredibly humorous idea, of the stag and hen night before the wedding, gives the audience a clear and simple over view of the lifestyles present in the 1980s, as characters throughout the play give out continuous hints regarding: sexual references, alcohol and sexism, which could have been a personal choice by Rourke to present
“A Madea Halloween” movie will be funny, scary, and dramatic. I believe people should go watch this movie because Tyler Perry has a background for making funny and dramatic movies. In the past, he has produced dramatic movies like Madea’s Big Happy Family and Diary of a Mad Black Woman. From the commercial preview, the movie “A Madea Halloween” will be funny because of Madea's funny voice along with her other great character skills that make an audience laugh. Madea persuaded me that the movie would be funny by knocking the clown out on the T.V.
Electrico alive while all of the freaks, including herself, are at the carnival. The Author does this to convey the idea that the carnival is the Home of the Dust Witch; it is her lair, where she is most powerful and dangerous. Secondly, in page 114, Bradbury uses the words said by the Dust Witch when she keeps Mr. Cooger/Electrico alive through electricity after he got deathly old on the carousel. The author does this to show that the Dust Witch has some kind of connection to not only the carnival, but also the freaks who operate, perform, and are also connected to the carnival. Lastly, in page 241, the author describes the final act of the carnival: the bullet catching trick, and how the Dust Witch is being forced to perform the trick.
This was hilarious because she was so nonchalant and giddy about it and life doesn’t happen like this way. She woos the doctor into wanting her, seemingly without knowing this, and he becomes deeply infatuated with her till the point that they are together at the end of the musical. Also, the scene where Elizabeth Benning and The Monster are romantic after Elizabeth protests against it and she ends up madly in love, is so unreal that the audience must love it. What I find to be the most mind boggling part of this bit is simple. Here we have this woman raped by this man and she falls in love with her rapist.
It really gives readers a fright to remember forever. Many people love scary and spooky elements in the plot events of a story, and the Headless Horseman introduced a new variation in these types of
Soon after the sexual movement came to an end, the Roman Dictator, Julius Caesar arrived in hope to see Cleopatra, after learning of her disappearance. Julius Caesar entered with a grand allegro and the handmaidens were performing Italian fouettés in the background. Cleopatra was strangely brought into the throne room wrapped in a rug, and revealed wearing a red costume, designed like the others. Both Cleopatra and the Roman Dictator performed a partnered adagio with many lifts and pirouettes, leading the dictator under her spell of love. Unfortunately, the Roman Dictator condemned her brother to his death due to his betrayal.
After watching the recording version of Shrek the Musical, I consider that it is a successful production if the purpose of this musical is to amuse audiences and bring them an enduring audio-visual feast. As a musical that is created based on a blockbuster, the basic story framework is without novelty – an ugly but kind-hearted ogre experiences lots of dangers with a friend, saves the princess like a hero and wins her heart in the end. However, I have to admit that Shrek the Musical does a fantastic job to convert a movie into a Broadway show, considering the high level of complexity and difficulty for a team to humanize animated characters and imitate scenes. There are a lot of details, including Pinocchio’s growing nose, in the musical that show off the elaboration. Undoubtedly, the scenery is one of the brightest spots in this musical.
For my final paper, I have decided to analyze the piece "Hoe Down" from Aaron Copland 's ballet, Rodeo. Rodeo is a upbeat piece that is a celebration of the American west and reflects a specific picture we have of ourselves. Rodeo originated from the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, with the music composed by Copland and the dance choreography by Agnes de Mille. The Ballet had it 's premiere at the Metropolitan Opera House on October 16, 1942. The ballet 's scene starts at Burnt Ranch where a cowgirl is competing with other visiting "city" girls for the attention of some local cowboys, like the Head Wrangler.
It was dark in the theatre and included colors of pink, red, and purple to capture the mood of “love’. These elements of the set design added to the production and made it feel like they were realistically going through a tunnel. At the beginning and the ending of the production, these were the scenes that made the audience feel as if they were in the show and watching it themselves. The “freaks” were in their cages or in the aisle ways. The round lights that hung from the ceiling in the theatre gave the feel of actually seeing a freak show.
How would you handle this loss? Unfortunately for the main character, Jacob Jankowski, this tragedy actually happened to him. After getting the news, he fled campus and jumped on a traveling circus train, He met a lot of new people, journeyed around to different places , and got plenty of real life experiences while with the circus. In Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen uses setting
It was much different than anything I have been too. The two main narrators made this circus Olay act, even more entertaining by being humorous. A great deal of times these two narrators made almost the whole crows grin and chuckle. For my family and me, we could not stop smirking or laughing the entire time. What else brought uniqueness to this performance is that they got people from the crowd involved in a couple instances.
The choreographies presented at the Cornish Dance Theater were very distinct from each other, though choreographers from both pieces put much effort on communicating devices to best deliver their intended-visions to the audiences. In MIXeD mEdia, the stage was decorated into a narrowed, light-colored setting in addition to the ballet performance, making the overall impression of the performance to be somewhat joyful and relaxing. Similarly, in Cannot Be Undone, the choreographer not only had music altering between strong-beats-fast-pace and sentimental-style-slower-pace, but also utilized varied lighting design in addition to props for creating sensational impacts. Although the two choreographers structured the performance with very different way, I believe that their intentions and motivations were alike after viewing and sharing
With the high powered jazz numbers, that keep the show moving forward. In the number, “You Gotta Have A Gimmick” the girls create the world of “Stripping” hoping to explain to Louise how to take the world of stripping by storm. The drum beats that accentuate the ladies hip thrust help create the world very well, and help to create the world that Louise has been thrown in. Overall, the musical Gypsy is an American classic and provided amazing music to the musical theatre cannon. Unfortunately, this stage to screen adaptation is lack luster, leaving much to be desired in the role of Mama Rose.
