Love Degas? Artist? This is a rare and beautiful opportunity to view Degas’ work from a different perspective….it’s hard, surreal, enchanting! At MOMA through July 24, 2016 Source…
Below is the Coppelia pas de deux performed at the Bolshoi Ballet. Swanhilda is played by Maria Alexandrova and Franz by Artem Ovcharenko. Such a beautiful and loving pas de deux with expressive choreography and gorgeous music… One of my favorites… Enjoy!
This is a video of the Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux choreographed by Balanchine. The dancers are Svetlana Zakharova and Igor Zelensky. I really think Zakharova does an excellent job in this pas de deux, and Zelensky floats through the air in dazzlingly high jumps! Please enjoy!
Bolshoi Ballet in Class concert from 2011, choreography by Asaf Messerer, revival choreography by Mikhail Messerer. I think that this is a wonderful ballet and they should perform it more often! It is set as a class, starting with barre and going all the way to grand allegro and fouettés.
I especially liked Anna Antonicheva in the pas de deux. Her movements were tasteful and controlled but also lovely and fluid, they looked just as they should in my opinion.
