Blancanieves y los siete enanitos

12 posts in this topic

Today has been broadcasted, in a private Spanish channel, La Sexta, Blancanieves y los siete enanitos (Snow White and the seven dwarfs). This was a private project, leaded by Emilio Aragón -who composed the music- and Ricardo Cué -the choreographer-; Tamara Rojo was casted as Snow White.

The production is good, not very good, but interesting. The dancers are free-lance, they do not belong to a company, so the difference of style is remarkable. Tamara Rojo was, as always, astonishing, musically and technically, and she made a fouettés series (two simples, one double) with no hesitation. The choreography was not very original (a little bit of Petipá here, a little bit of Nureyev there), and the music deserves an A minus. The main theme remains in ypur mind for a day or two, and that is not easy.

Recently a DVD from Deutsche Grammophon has been released. You must watch it!

I fully agree with you Grissi, "Blancanieves" is worth to see Tamara, although it is a nice to see ballet neither the music nor the choreography will remain.

And what is really incredible is that today, the only day all over the year long that we have had the opportunity to watch ballet on TV in Spain we have had two different ballets at the same time :devil: both with Tamara, Snow White and the gala of last Thursday 21 in Fuenlabrada. Again, of course, the worth to see has been Tamara, she has danced a bit of Carmen (Petit) with Lienz Chang and Paquita with Iñaki Urlezaga. I have recorded it and seen a bit, but what I can say is that the corps de ballet was not good at all and that I have liked Giuliano Peparini, Ballet de Marsella and Olga Clavel, Compañía David Campos of Barcelona.

Joseph, depending on where you live and what kind of playback equipment you have, you will need to take into account the format and region coding. I believe you can watch most DVDs on a PC, going beyond that becomes a bit more complicated. For instance Nero will do a format (PAL/NTSC) conversion, but in my experience it balks at touching encrypted (Copyright) discs. But my version is 6.0 and a newer one may be more tolerant.

Thanks Richard!

Yeah, I am not sure what my system's capabilities are...? But, possibly it will be worth it to get a multiregion player at some point?

Talk to you soon...
