George Balachine is amazing
15 November 2006 | by tuchtmannSee all my reviews

Choreography by Balanchine opens the mind to the true beauty of a ballet without a story. The four temperaments are all about the music ... and the movements are innovative expressive and amazing. Each section expresses the mood through the movements. However, my most favorite ballet on this program is Tzigane. It has a suggestion of a story; of a gypsy fortuneteller mesmerizing a young gypsy with her spells. This ballet was the first one Balanchine choreographed for Suzanne Farrell after her long absence from his company. She tells of how wonderful it was to work with Balanchine again, as if nothing had happened. The long opening in which she dances to the solo violin shows the way Balanchine utilized his ability to surprise with his 'off-balance' balance and 'unprepared' movements so that by the time the spell of the fortuneteller is cast you are in the palm of her hand.
