The Paris Opera Ballet stages Nureyev’s vivid production of the Tchaikovsky classic, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.
上海后花园女神会所The Paris Opera Ballet, the national ballet company of France, wra
pped up a week of performances on Friday in Shanghai, the only stop in China during its s
hort tour of Asia that saw the prominent dance company visit Singapore from June 21 to 23.上海后花园
It was just one of a series of events to celebrate the POB’s 350th anniversary. The compa
上海后花园女神会所ny presented four performances of Swan Lake in Shanghai from June 29 to July 1 and two per
formances of a gala show, featuring creations by three contemporary choreographers, that concluded on Friday.
The company made the decision to perform Swan Lake in Shanghai not only because it is on
e of the most beloved productions in the ballet world, famed for its robust energy and rich color. More imp
ortantly, the version created by Rudolf Nureyev (1938-93) is one that “best represents the style, aesthetics and cap
abilities of the Paris Opera Ballet”, says Flavien Moglia, executive president of the company.
Nureyev, one of the former Soviet Union’s best-known dancers, created a new versio
n of Swan Lake in 1984, when he was the director of the company. Also considered one of the greatest male ballet danc
ers of the 20th century, Nureyev brought a new depth to the ballet, especially by adding a psychological angle to
the role of the prince, says Jean-Guillaume Bart, a ballet master with the POB.Nureyev gave the story a Freudian di
mension, illuminating Tchaikovsky’s poetic dream with a profound sense of hopelessness, he adds.
In Nureyev’s Swan Lake, the dark wizard is an ambiguous figure. At first, he serves as a sort of tutor or guide to the prince, bef
ore gradually turning into a negative influence that mirrors the dark side of the prince. The contrast between the w
hite swan and black swan also reflects the two sides of the prince’s soul, Bart explains.
Also, Nureyev introduced difficult new movements and gestures into his choreography. “We hope audiences can appre
ciate the depth of Swan Lake, rather than just seeing it as a traditional and established ballet production.”

“Many companies or organizations didn’t fully realize the potential of “d

curity markets of Splunk, a US company leveraging software to search and analyze data.
“The chaos of being unable to deal with such data creates tremendous opport上海后花园
unities for motivated companies to learn, as well as for Splunk to empower them to use it,” she said.
Another challenge for companies using data is that they tend to simply collect da上海后花园女神会所
ta but do not use it to predict something that they don’t even know, she added.
In the wake of such problems, Song said Splunk has integrated some premium solutions, including artificial intell
上海后花园igence, across the platform to help companies better use “dark data”, as well as predict future outcomes.
