Cecchetti, Carabosse, and Blue Birdin the original Apotheosis, which role did Cecchetti play?
Posted 08 June 2008 - 05:01 PM
How early did the Apotheosis fall away from the production history of the ballet? The entrances are all there in the score, and WHERE IS CARABOSSE?
Which leads to this question: Since Cecchetti doubled as BOTH Carabosse and Blue Bird, what did he do at the Apotheosis, when one would suppose both characters were required to present themselves? This question has probably come up before -- RG, Doug, and Alexandra probably konw the answer, and maybe more of us -- but I don't, and would like to.

(The Imperial ballet didn't seem to have much of a problem replacing dancers halfway through a ballet, I know that in one ballet--was it Raymonda?--the ages P Gerdt was replaced as the leading man for the final dance variation by the younger Legat.)
