Maxim Petrov, who called his second opus simply Ballet No 2, made a brilliant play on dance nostalgia. His ballet to music by Alexander Tsfasman will undoubtedly prove sweet for the generation of the 1960s and all who love the naïve Soviet positivist films about Shurik. The enchanting young ladies with their hair in "buns" and in short skirts and the young men from a school for working youths have wittily embodied in dance the themes of the best Soviet songs about ten girls for whom, statistically, there are nine boys, about the good girl Lida and about how we are chosen and how we choose. How easy it was to make the auditorium a happy and tranquil place!

ABOUT THE PRODUCTION

In the miniature Second I Xenia Zvereva turned to the music of Philip Glass. Today his works enjoy great popularity, being used in films; choreographers stage productions and concert pieces to them, and the ballet In the Upper Room has long been a hit at numerous theatres. In the piercing monotones of the “music of repetitive structure” (as the composer himself defines the style of his works) Ksenia Zvereva heard a theme of duplicity. The choreographer has found its visual embodiment in the combination of plastique images of a dance duet and large-scale intricate video-projections.
