4 may 1738 considered the birthday of Russian ballet. On this day the Empress Anna Ioannovna signed the Royal decree on the opening of "Her Majesty's Dance school" and identified it 12 girls and 12 boys, the number is two times greater than indicated in the petition of the French choreographer Jean-Baptiste Lande is the founder of the school. Really loved the Queen, decided to turn St. Petersburg in the North of Paris, balls, masquerades, and fireworks and other fun.

the Moscow school was a little younger. The year of its Foundation is considered to be 1773. This year, Educational, or Orphan's home, established at the behest of another Empress, Catherine II, in 1764, built a stage. To the Orphanage accepted orphans and foundlings, teaching them crafts, Sciences and all the arts, including dance. They-the pupils, to the surprise of the authorities, and showed the greatest gains.

the First lesson of dances held here Italian Micali, and learned the art of dance in the year of the founding of the school 54 girls and a boy. The first five years of four times a week for four hours they were taught this wisdom again, the Italians Filippo beccari and his wife. Just then an enterprising entrepreneur Carl Knipper organized the St. Petersburg troupe, so the school was initially trained dancers not to Moscow, and St. Petersburg theatres.

the school is Now 245 years old, and held to this date, concert has demonstrated that the school is under the leadership of its rector Marina Leonova is currently one of the best dance schools in the world. The concert program was devoted to another date, celebrated by the Academy, a 200 — anniversary from the birthday of the Creator of the world classical ballet repertoire by Marius Petipa, therefore, the first and the third part was compiled almost exclusively from the works of the master.

One of the most beautiful dance ensembles Petipa — Suite "Lively garden" from "Le Corsaire" ballet by choreographer in 1868 (that is, immediately after the Paris version of Joseph mazilier's 1867), showed in the first part of the concert of. Moscow Academy put fine Antiques restorer Yuri Burlaka.

I Have to say that no other ballet school in the world with such stylistic finesse and grace to overcome such a complicated thing. As once the Petipa (1899), in ballet ensembles are employed in 68 (!) man, that is the scene before us was almost all of Moscow's Academy: Junior students and current graduates. (Well, who else can you pull?) The performance of pupils of the Moscow Academy were very different from what we have seen recently — on the evening dedicated to Petipa in the Musical theater of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko: this time slender in its symmetry and orderliness of the ranks of the corps de ballet was a musical and poetically inspired.

Particularly rapidly took the audience inserted in the Suite, the pas de Deux from this ballet performed by the Elizabeth Kokoreva (class of Tatyana Galtseva) and Denis Zakharov (teacher Denis Medvedev) — "gold" winners of the latest Moscow international competition. Elizabeth just graduated from the second course, and the release of her yet. But Dennis has been credited as the artist of the corps de ballet of the Bolshoi theatre. Moreover, already present in the ballet "Sleeping beauty" in the cult of the party of Vaslav Nijinsky — Blue bird (pas de Deux the Blue bird and Princess Florine). So the young man has great promise, and the performance at the final concert proved it again.

"Variations on a Rococo theme", shown in the second part of the evening — burst neoclassical ballet style of Russian-American choreographer George Balanchine. He was made the chief choreographer of the Perm theater of Opera and ballet by Alexey Miroshnichenko initially for students of the Perm school, and then transferred choreographer in local theater. Students of the Moscow Academy, he also fell just right, although quite conventionally fit into the concept of the evening to recall the 200th anniversary of Petipa. But refers to the time of the initial formation of the ballet theatre.

the Name of the ballet "Variations on a theme Rococo" comes from the name of the musical cycle of Tchaikovsky's "Variations on a Rococo theme for cello and orchestra" which the composer wrote in 1876-1877, i.e. in parallel with the creation of the music for the ballet "Swan lake". However, no corresponding "topics Swan" in the ballet Miroshnichenko no.

the Choreographer is drawn here to the Rococo era — the era of court performances and balls, fashionable in the reign of Louis XV. Of dance, then vanished is the grandeur and solemnity of the execution, which was adopted at the court of the sun king Louis XIV, reigned everywhere and thanks to the easy morals of the court-choreographic art of the time became characteristic of some ambiguous mannerisms and grace that we can experience also in the manner of the artists of that period — Watteau, Lancret, and Boucher.

the Leitmotiv of the Rococo (from French rocaille, literally: decoration of shells) — asymmetry and pretentiousness lines — typical for ballet Miroshnichenko. In this ballet, as in any work of art of the Rococo, not a frivolous story, which in fact to him, and admiration of form: the beauty of the hands and feet, kulturenostro stop tenderness manners and graceful movements. And dancers involved in the two pas de Deux and a pas de Trois, is the best cope with their rather complex choreographic tasks.

has Not done the reporting on this concert and without losses in the Russo-Japanese dancer mark Chino has replaced Marcello Pelizzoni very charming Italian man, one of the best of this year's graduates, who broke his leg right before the concert on view at the Musical theatre of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko.

The same Brand Chino is a graduate of the Moscow Academy last year, and now artist of the Bolshoi theater, the audience could still see in the third part of the concert in the pas de Deux from ballet "Sleeping beauty", which he danced with graduate Elizaveta Egorova. After a year of work in the theater Chino moved to the "Supreme dance League", turned into a dancer-class, almost ready soloist, able to go out and in the Prime Minister's parties. (In fact, he them in a Big and dance: the plug-in pas de Deux in the ballet "Giselle" and the solo in "Etudes" landera — ballet super complicated and insidious). The role of Prince désiré in concert Chino danced a surprisingly clean, even with the Premiership in style, clearly articulating movement and conquering elegance.
