09 june 2023 "La Fille Mal Gardee" At The Summer Theater On Tuesday

The second event included in the program of the Burgas Music Festival "Emil Chakerov" 2023, carried out for the sixteenth time in a row by the State Opera - Burgas and the Municipality of Burgas, is a performance of the new ballet production of the Burgas Opera "La Fille Mal Gardeе", to the music of Louis Harold and Pierre Gavo - on June 13, Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. on the stage of the Summer Theater - Burgas. The two premieres of the new title in the repertoire of the Burgas Cultural Institute took place on April 7 and 29 this year and were a success as expected. The audience appreciated the performance saturated with emotions, dynamics, exquisite musical motifs, and color, carrying vital messages and energizing mood - due to the skillfully woven humor in the drama. Burgas connoisseurs of fine art and guests of the city will once again have the chance to experience the excitement caused by the mastery of superb soloists, a wonderfully assembled ensemble, and life-affirming messages of the comic ballet.

The choreography and direction of  "La Fille Mal Gardeе" are by Galina Kalcheva. The ballet production contains original elements and an approach combining classical techniques with innovative ideas. The tutor of the ballet ensemble is Marina Zmeeva-Markova, and the assistant director of the production is Petar Tiholov, they are an indispensable part of structuring the overall glamorous appearance of the performance. The scenographer of the new title is the acclaimed professional in the field Ivan Tokadzhiev. The atmosphere of a French rural idyll, recreated through the scenography, will be created on the stage of the Summer Theater on June 13th again – authentically, with style, a sense of the taste and attitudes of the audience, with the finesse characteristic of French culture and attention to every detail.

The superbly constructed costumes, which add an additional catchy element to the humorous plot, are in aesthetic-sense harmony with the style of the scenography. They are the work of Jana Dvoretska, an artist with her own vision for a modern aesthetic based on the best of the classical canons. The time devoted to structuring the overall appearance of the production and sculpting the details - to a brilliant finish, has had its undeniably positive result, and this was palpable at the two premiere performances. The production exudes true love for the created art - with talent, dedication, and empathy for the common cause. Galina Kalcheva's direction is refined - like exquisite French lace, in which every link is in its place, sculpting the overall appearance.

The visual effects are also impressive, recreating a storm in the field – with remarkable credibility and impact on all levels of perception. And the soloists and artists of the ensemble fit seamlessly into the overall picture of a French rural idyll, which brings unadulterated joy - simple, natural, with a breath of hay and a taste of the sweetness of life.

On the Burgas stage on June 13, the loving couple Lisa and Kolen will recreate Daniela Turtumanova-Stoyanova, a soloist of the ballet troupe, who was impeccable at the two premiere performances, and the premier ballet dancer Emil Yordanov, who played the role of a candidate at the premiere performance on April 7 -fiancé Nikez. The comedy-parody character of the strict widow Mama Simone will again be presented by Teodor Tsakov, who created the image of the two previous shows with a whirlwind and a fresh sense of humor. And although the widow Mama Simone plans to marry her beautiful daughter to the rich man's son Nicez, love prevails over guild principles and the lovers triumph. The soloist of the ballet troupe Kiril Filipov re-enters the role. He made a strong debut as Lisa's bumbling suitor who loses the battle for her heart in the second premiere on April 29. In the image of Thomas, Nikez's father, Svetlan Nikolov enters again - whirlwind and with artistry. And Mama Simone, whose stern heart is softened by the tender feelings of the young, receives her fateful bonus – the heart of Thomas, father of the unfortunate Nikez. And at the end of the French fairy tale, there are not one, but two weddings. And minuet, gavotte, and barrel merge into a single dance of love...
