Russian Ballets: The Magic Mirror 1903

Esteemed Readers, first of all, I would like to apologize for my delays with posting. New live environment needs time. I will do my best to be more precise from a new month. 😊 Today I would like to tell you about a historical ballet by Marius Petipa. It was staged in the beginning of the 20th century but it due to its strange failure it is not a frequent guest of our ballet school. In fact, I have learnt about it only today. (All right, I’m not a great ballet specialist)…

The Magic Mirror (1903) is the last ballet by Petipa. It is a ballet-fairy tale, libretto is based on the Snow White by the Brothers Grimm & its Russian interpretation The Tale of the Dead Princess & the Seven Knights by Alexandr Pushkin. Indeed, it must have been a fabulous performance as decorations& costumes were very rich. The ballet reconstructed an authentic Russian environment, so if you ever find it, I recommend you to watch it.
