Fadetta?

4 posts in this topic

Would anyone know about the recent premiere of the ballet Fadette/Fadetta in Perm by Boyarchnikov? Is it based on Lavrosky's ballet? Is it using music from Sylvia?

It is loosely based on the Lavrovsky production with Delibes music for Sylvia.

The Perm Opera and Ballet website has full details and a good number of photographs but I could not get the link to work.

You can read the following review in Russian or do as I have done and use Google translation

or google balletfriends.ru fadetta and scroll down for more reviews.

PS

The Mikhailovsky Ballet also have a production of Fadetta.
