Silent Monologues

Choreographer, Stage Director and Designer: Thomas Edur
Music: Heino Eller, Artur Kapp, Artur Lemba, Eduard Oja, Arvo Pärt, Peeter Süda
World premiere on June 30, 2009 at the London St. Paul Cathedral
Premiere at the Estonian National Opera on November 4, 2016

Music from CD.

A one-act piece for three couples speaks of the silence of the inner loneliness, the ups and downs, self-exploration, shared happiness and sadness of human relationships. We hope that we are understood, but there is always something that cannot be reached in another human being and not everything can be put into words…

“Silent Monologues” first reached its audiences in 2009 at the City of London Festival that explored the 60° North theme, linking cities on that line of latitude: Tallinn, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo, St. Petersburg, Kirkwall and London.

Song of the Earth
Choreographer: Kenneth MacMillan
Conductor: Lauri Sirp
Music: Gustav Mahler’s Symphony “Das Lied von der Erde”, arranged by Glen Cortese
Staging: Grant Coyle
Designer: Nicholas Georgiadis
Realisation of the ideas of the Designer: Lady Deborah MacMillan
World Premiere on November 7, 1965 at the Stuttgart Ballet

Estonian National Ballet and Estonian National Opera Orchestra

MacMillan had long been hoping to choreograph a work to Mahler’s symphonic song cycle, but the Royal Opera House board had rejected his proposal. MacMillan offered his idea to the Stuttgart Ballet instead. He got the chance to create “The Song of the Earth” in 1965. MacMillan described the theme of his ballet succinctly: “A man and a woman; death takes the man; they both return to her and at the end of the ballet, we find that in death there is the promise of renewal.”

MacMillan’s choreography for the “Song of the Earth” was different from anything he had devised before. It was his long-considered response to Mahler’s music and the images in the translated Chinese poetry. He introduced orientalisms amid the balletic pointework. After dazzling reviews, The Royal Ballet decided to perform it in 1966.

Kenneth MacMillan (1929–92) was one of the leading choreographers of the 20th century. He was the Director of The Royal Ballet in 1970–77 and Principal Choreographer 1977–92. His ballets are distinguished by their penetrating psychological insight and expressive use of classical language. These qualities are demonstrated in his many works for the company, which include “Romeo and Juliet”, “Gloria”, “Manon” (premiered at the Estonian National Ballet in 2011), “Mayerling” and “Requiem”.

“The inventiveness, and the unique quality and development of the choreography, set to Mahler’s wonderful score, makes it a masterpiece”, says Monica Mason, Director of The Royal Ballet (2002–2012) and former dancer

“It’s a song full of the lusty love of life, but contrasted with tranquil, reflective melody and the overwhelming feeling of change, and that is what the choreography shows so well.”
Barry Wordsworth, Royal Ballet Music Director

Boléro
Choreographer and Stage Director: Tiit Härm
Music: Maurice Ravel
Assistants to the Stage Director: Irina Härm, Victor Fedorchenko
Designer: Kustav-Agu Püüman
Lighting: Tiit Urvik
Premiere at the Estonian National Opera on November 18, 2004

Choreographer Tiit Härm has been inspired by the colourful and enticing music that finds expression in passionate dance. One of Ravel’s most famous pieces was written for the famous Russian dancer Ida Rubinstein in 1928. For this piece, Ravel found inspiration from two opposing sources: from the Moroccan folk music and from a slightly unusual location – a factory. The composer was fascinated by the movement of conveyor belts as well as the sounds of whistles and hammers that he masterfully united in his piece with sensual Moroccan folk tunes.

Le Spectre de la rose
Choreography: Mikhail Fokin
Music: Hector Berlioz’s orchestration of Carl Maria von Weber’s piano piece “Invitation to the Dance”
Staged by Viesturs Jansons
Designer: Marja-Liisa Pihlak
World premiere on April 19, 1911 by Diachilev’s Ballets Russes at the Theatre de Monte Carlo

“Le Spectre de la rose” (“The Specter of the Rose”) is in essence a pas de deux created by Mikhail Fokin specifically for Vatslav Nijinsky and Tamara Karsavina. In the ballet, a young girl returns home from her society debut at a ball. She dreams that she dances with the rose she held at the ball, whose specter was danced by Nijinsky, causing quite a sensation. Audiences were particularly enraptured by his final athletic leap out of the girl’s window, which ended both the girl’s reverie and the ballet itself. “Le Spectre de la rose” is one of the golden ballet classics that is still a popular part of theatres’ repertoire.
