2013年4月22日   英国ロイヤルバレエ団日本公演: 不思議の国のアリス、白鳥の湖、ロイヤル・ ガラ 2013年7月5日(金)から14日(日)   英国ロイヤルバレエ団が、東京文化会館に戻ってきます。アジアで初公開のクリストファー・ウィールドン振り付けの「不思議の国のアリス」、同バレエ団の得意演目であるアンソニー・ダウエル演出の「白鳥の湖」、また同バレエ団のもうひとつの重要な側面である、モダンなロイヤル・ガラの公演が予定されています。   「不思議の国のアリス」は、英国ロイヤルオペラハウスで3回目の完売公演となりました。英国ロイヤルバレエ団にとっては、1995年以来の新しい演目で、2011年に初演されました。ジョビー・タルボットによる生き生きした刺激的な音楽とボブ・クロウリーの斬新で革新的な舞台・衣装により色彩豊かなワンダーランドを創り出しています。   「白鳥の湖」は、最も愛されている素晴らしいバレエで、ダウエルの演出はロイヤルバレエ団のクラシックな演目となっています。チャイコフスキーの情熱的な音楽が、愛と超自然のダークなパワーとのドラマティックな戦いを引き立たせています。ファベルジェの作品に影響を受けたヨランダ・ソナーベンドの豪華な舞台はマジカルなロシアの宮廷、月光に照らされた湖に命を吹き込んでいます。.   7月10日(水)の、ロイヤル・ガラでは、ダンサーの多様な能力を発揮させ、ロイヤルバレエ団の振り付けの幅の広さをたたえています。同ガラには、マノン(マクミラン)、ドンキホーテ(ペティパ)、眠れる森の美女(アシュトン)のクラシックのなパ・ド・ドウ、バレエ団の創設・振り付け者であるフレデリック・アシュトンの春の声、白鳥の湖のパ・ド・カトル、ケネス・マクミランのコンチェルト・パ・ド・ドウ、マイヤーリングの最終シーンが含まれています。フィナーレは、ジョージ・バランシンのシンフォーニー・インCと、より現代的なウェイン・マクレガーのクオリア(ロイヤルバレエ団付きのコレオグラファー)、クリストファー・ウィールドン(ロイヤルバレエ団付きの芸術アソシエート)のアフター・ザ・レイン(雨の後)、リーアム・スカーレット(ロイヤルバレエダン付きのアーティスト)のジュビリー・パ・ド・ドウ、アリステア・マリオットの イン・ザ・ホットハウス となっています。 デービッド・ブリスキン、ドミニック・グリエー、ボリス・グルジンが東京フィルハーモニックオーケストラを指揮します。   ロイヤルバレエ団は芸術監督、ケビン・オヘア率いる英国最大のバレエ団で、ロンドン、コベントガーデンのロイヤルオペラハウスを拠点としています。   ロイヤルオペラハウスでの公演に加え、ROHライヴ・シネマ (32カ国以上で放送)、また、BBC放送、BPビッグスクリーンリレー通して、幅広い観客を得ています。ロイヤルバレエ・ライブ(インターネットの特別放送)は、現在までに百万人以上が視聴しています。O2アリーナの4万7千人の観客の前でも公演しています。   海外ツアーもロイヤルバレエ団の重要な活動となっています。今年に入ってから、すでに七人のプリンシパル ダンサーとロイヤルオペラハウスのシンガーがリオ・デ・ジャネイロで三回のガラ公演をバレエとダンスをテーマとした特別シンポジウムと同時に行いました。デリー・ロンドンデリーにおいても、同バレエ団のダンサーが、文化プログラムに出演しています。また、キム・ブランドストラップが6月に予定されているオーバラ・フェスティバルにおいて、ベンジャミン・ブリテン生誕百周年記念のイベントのために同バレエ団の作品を創作しています。   公演日程、予定キャスト   不思議の国のアリス 7/5(金) アリス:ローレン・カスバートソン ハートのジャック/庭師ジャック:フェデリコ・ボネッリ 白うさぎ/ルイス・キャロル:エドワード・ワトソン ハートの女王/アリスの母親:ゼナイダ・ヤノウスキー マッドハッター/マジシャン:スティーヴン・マックレー   7/6(土)1:00p.m. アリス:ベアトリス・スティックス=ブルネル ハートのジャック/庭師ジャック:ルパート・ペネファーザー 白うさぎ/ルイス・キャロル:ブライアン・マロニー ハートの女王/アリスの母親:イツァール・メンディザバル マッドハッター/マジシャン:未定   7/6(土)6:00p.m. アリス:サラ・ラム ハートのジャック/庭師ジャック:スティーヴン・マックレー 白うさぎ/ルイス・キャロル:リカルド・セルヴェラ ハートの女王/アリスの母親:ラウラ・モレーラ マッドハッター/マジシャン:アレクサンダー・キャンベル     ロイヤル・ガラ 7月10日(水)   白鳥の湖 7/12(金) (マチネ) オデット/オディール:マリアネラ・ヌニェス ジークフリート王子:ティアゴ・ソアレス   7/12(金)6:30 […]
