Pierrot Lunaire

3 posts in this topic

Bart started a thread about Pierrot Lunaire, in which I posted my opening-night thoughts:

Pierrot Lunaire/Tetley thread

I unfortunately am unable to see the second cast - Bonelli/Galeazzi/Watson, and was wondering if anyone else here has seen it?

I caught it on Thursday night, Ami; I missed it on Wednesday in preference of taking a cab to Sadlers Wells and seeing Checkmate and Lady and the Fool again.

I admit to finding the ballet itself rough going, but the cast was fine - I would guess that Nureyev had more charisma than Bonelli in the role, but Bonelli keeps getting better as a performer to me on every visit. In his green unitard and black eye-mask, Edward Watson looked for all the world like The Riddler.

Thanks Leigh, for your thoughts. I agree with you about Bonelli, he's finally moving beyond being a Prince all the time, and I do think he's gaining in the details of some of his technique. It's nice to see!

I agree with you about the costume for Brighella - how did Ed dance it? With the costume and his over-the-top villain acting, Carlos Acosta could have jumped straight out of a comic book! Very different from the soul-exposing interpretations of Putrov and Chapman.
