Quote:
"We are all born into this world to love and to be loved. When we think about love, “Romeo and Juliet” come to our minds yet again. Why? Why do we wish to see their love story over and over? The secret of “Romeo and Juliet” lies in its timeless story that touches our hearts. It is retold time and again, affecting new generations, carrying us away. There is something mystifying in it, which cannot be explained. Romeo and Juliet die tragically because hostility and hatred do not lead to any good. In fact, happiness, humanity and dignity, which are present in all of us, win in this story. Everybody has the right to love, to be an individual, to have feelings. Unfortunately, not everybody can, because the world is not as perfect as we would like. We must often stand up for our beliefs and the greatest blessing – love. Just like Romeo and Juliet did. Because when there is no love, where can one find strength…"

Once again, thank you for the beautiful photos. I love the second one, with the women in the air. Can you tell me what step they're doing?

Hello djb!

If I am not mistaken, it is sissonne - fouetté.
And I like too this photo. :)

If a sissone fouette is what I think it is, it's not a step one often sees women performing. How nice!

Vladimir, You did great roll of Romeo but You were better in Swan Lake and in Cassandra (in these rolls You are best). But my favourite Romeo is Sergei Upkin, his youthful fierness is so truthful and emotional.

Welcome to CriticalDance Alissa. I hope you post your views regularly here.

I've enjoyed both the interpretations of Sergei and Vladimir, but the most pleasant surprise was the elegant romanticism of Luana Georg as Juliet.

I didn't see Mai Murdmaa's earlier version of "Romeo and Juliet". Did you see it Alissa?

press release:

The 98th season was a success for the Estonian National Opera (04.06.04)

The 98th stationary season of the Estonian National Opera brought smiles on the faces of the staff of “Estonia” – the average audience attendance rate was 74.8 per cent (in the 97th season, it was 73 per cent, and in the 96th season – 62.5 per cent). 199 performances took place in the big hall of the National Opera and the number of the spectators amounted to 105.000 people.

In the course of the season, 82 operas, 59 ballets, 35 operettas, and 23 concerts were performed. The most popular performances were opera “Carmen” (92 %), ballet “Swan Lake” (90.4 %), operetta “Wiener Blut” (90.1 %), and opera “The Queen of Spades” (89.1 %).

"The results, of course, make me glad,” said Paul Himma, the General Manager of the National Opera “Estonia”, when commenting on the ticket sales. “Still, I am sure that we will have to continue working very hard in order to keep the existing audience and to gain new visitors,” Himma added.

The 99th season of the National Operat begins on the 10th of September with a concert and recording of opera “Mare and Her Son”. In October, opera “Aida” will be performed in the Onistar Tennis Centre in Rocca al Mare. The stationary performance season will start again on the 29th of October with a performance of “The Queen of Spades”.
Welcome to “Estonia”!
