Raymonda Original Designs Pictures?
Posted 03 February 2009 - 09:48 PM
Grigorovich's "Authorized Book of Bolshoi's Raymonda" (translated to English in 1987) has lots of pics of old Moscow productions but not St Petersburg. I've seen one photograph of Legnani and Legat in their Act III "Hongroise" costumes posed. And I also have the Moscow Symphone 2 CD recording of the original score which uses as its cover a scene design by K Ivanov for St Petersburg--I assume it must be the design for Act III in the original production. This is the the link to the cd where you can see the image http://www.amazon.co...p...6390&sr=8-3

It's too bad that for such a major ballet in Miyazaki's ouevre (at least for me--but definetly one that in Russia has survived the most--although it's fair to say that at the time ballets like Phaorah were probably more performed) seems to not have much archival imagery surviving. Doug--how complete is the Stepanov notation, do you know?
