Although the final selections, "Cirque de Deux" and "Gaite Parisienne," were without a doubt audience favorites, the more classic "Swan Lake" and "The Blue Bird and the Enchanted Princess" -w^r^^lso-warrnly_J3C£U£edj3^^ crowd. For sheer beauty and grace "Swan Lake" cannot be equaled. The simple, bui poignant story of ihe prince and .ihe swan queen, ihe hauniingly beautiful Tchaikovsky music, ihe ballerinas in traditional white costumes gliding across a "moonlit" stage combine io create a spectacle unequalled in ihe ballet world. Moscelyn Larkin as the swan queen, and later the ballerina in "Cirque de Deux" and the flower girl in "Gaite," seemed to an amateur to be the more skilled and graceful of the two leading bal lerinas of the troupe. Her lovely and expressive hands and arms were a dance in themselves. Tchaikovsky's less-f a m i 1 i a r "Blue Bird" was probably the least popular number on the program. Although the dancers were beautifully costumed and performed brilliantly, audience appeal was lessened by the fact that the story thread was almost completely hidden. Humor was victorious over skill, according io audience re- a^ion^o^^orinod's-^irque-de— Deux" or "Circus for Two." The classic posturings of the ballerina and ihe premier danseur were forgotten as all eyes turned to watch ihe clowning of iheir pages. The crowd was given a taste of the spectacle to be presented in the final number by the lovely pink and blue costumes worn in "Cirque." Offenbach's gay and impudent music forms a perfect background for "Gaite," a perfect finale for the evening's perfect performance. One of the most popular ballets of our day, with reason", the dance exudes all the atmosphere of Paris of the second Empire. The humorous element is introduced by the Peruvian, danced by Gerald Teijelo, also the male page in "Cirque." The romantic element is found in the amours of the glove seller and the baron, the flower girl and the officer, and the other couples who meet in the Cafe Tortoni, where the ballet is set. The spectacular element is interjected by the can can dancers whose agility seemed super-human. These elelnenis~^w"eTre—com>— bined wiih marvelous dancing and gorgeous costumes io climax an evening of superior entertainment. Although the two-piano arrangements used as accompaniments were well-done, the numbers might have been slightly more effective with an orchestral accompaniment. All-in-all, it was an unforgettable evening for ballet lovers and those unfamiliar with the art. Best of all, many found that so- called "culture" could be understandable and excitingt in spite of former skepticism.
