Alicia Alonso and John Kriza

Recommended Posts

scan of an undated publicity photo of Ballet Theatre's LA FILLE MAL GARDEE - presumably in the production credited to Nijinska, with Kriza as Colin and Alonso as Lisette; something about Kriza's costuming, posture and expression tell almost more about Alain than about Colin but he seemingly danced only the latter, not the former, character.

Ah...thanks for that pic, rg. This is indeed the BT's Nijinska-after Gorsky/Petipa staging that Alonso, along with that of Balachova for the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo-(in which she also danced)- used to stage the one for the Cuban Ballet in 1952, still faithfully kept in repertoire. Alonso has extensively praised Kriza's interpretation, using it as her main model in her staging. Lovely picture. :clapping:
