Othello on PBS
Posted 23 June 2003 - 08:31 AM
For those who hated the music, just bear in mind that Othello is a very dark story full of jealosy, revenge, plotting, murder, and all the gore that goes with a good Shakespearean tragedy. So it makes sense that it sounds like horror movie music.
I don't get out to many live ballets, since I live in a rural area, so thank God for PBS, right? And my brother, too. I was at freshman orientation at ECU, so he taped it for me.

Cabriole, I think you're right about a certain undercharacterization in the pas de deux, but I suspect the fault, dear Lar, lies not in our stars.

Typically, story ballets are done in classical ballet. I don't know how I feel about the the contemporary movement. It's just my opinion, but I feel like stories seem to be portrayed better through classical ballet.
The dancers were gorgeous! I particularly liked Parrish Maynard. Great job SFB!
