Balanchine has described Allegro Brillante as a concentrated essay in the extended classic vocab?ulary, in which a maximum amount of choreographic development is contained in a rather restricted area of time and space -"everything 1 know about classical ballet, in thirteen minutes." Allegro Brillante was premiered in 1956; the Royal Winnipeg Ballet first performed it in 1983.
This production of Allegro Brillante is made possible in part through the generosity of The Guarantee Company of North America.
LE CORSAIRE FAS DE DEUX
Choreography: Alexander Gorsky Music: Drigo
Costume designs: Doreen Macdonald
Svea Eklof Mark Lanham
One of the great triumphs of the late Romantic ballet, Le Corsaire was a three-act extravaganza based upon Lord Byron's poem The Corsaire. Extracts from the ballet are still preserved in Leningrad, but in the Western world only the spectacular pas de deux is still performed. Solar, an Eastern slave, tries to win the love of a beautiful vision.

Family Scenes is a sequence of loose portraits, melodramatic pictures that tell of the relationships of a Victorian family. The situations are expressed in a language of "living pictures," poses, and exaggerated gestures. The gamut of human emotions is revealed -love, sadness, jealousy, tender?ness, security, respect, confusion, and loneliness. Family Scenes was created for the Oscar Araiz Company in 1974 in Buenos Aires and performed that same year by the Royal Winnipeg Ballet.
Used by arrangement with G. Schirmer Inc., U.S. agent for Editions Salabert, Paris.

The Company and Full Orchestra
Musical instruments spring to life in this delightful ballet spoof by Paddy Stone, a former leading dancer with the Royal Winnipeg Ballet. Strings, cymbals, and an octave of the zaniest piano ever -all develop personalities in a harmonious fantasy.

Under Arnold Spohr's artistic direction since 1958, the ensemble has progressed to its present position among the world's internationally renowned companies. The Winnipeg's current season began June 22nd with its participation in the Los Angeles Olympic Arts Festival and a late summer tour to Greece and Egypt. Other tours will take them throughout eastern, midwestcrn, and western portions of the United States and Canada. This weekend's performances mark the company's fifth visit to Ann Arbor.
