Godspell Updated After Weaving Its Spiritual Spell for 40 Years

I

n the beginning – before he wrote Wicked – Stephen Schwartz wrote the music and lyrics for Godspell, which plays Dec. 3-8 at Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts. Schwartz was just 23 at the time, but he did have a little help from above, one might presume. The pop/rock musical that celebrates the teachings of Jesus Christ is, after all, based on the Gospel of Matthew. The Jewish composer, who also wrote Pippin, wasn’t even familiar with the Gospels when he wrote the now-famous lyrics. His biographer, Carol de Giere, recounts in “Defying Gravity: The Creative Career of Stephen Schwartz” that he once said, “I was reading some of these parables for the first time. I basically was responding to the material fresh.” The hippie-era musical, with a book by John-Michael Tebelak – who also conceived of the radical idea – feels as fresh today as when it opened off-Broadway in 1971. The show moved to Broadway five years later and has played in touring companies and in church fellowship halls ever since. In “Defying Gravity,” de Giere says Tebelak had hoped to “weave God’s spell over the audience.” The tale, while timeless, got an update for its 2011 Broadway revival to include references to people and things definitely not

found in the Bible: Facebook, “The Donald” and Lindsay Lohan, among others. The original Godspell featured a troupe of clowns who follow Jesus around an abandoned playground where a chain-link fence serves as a backdrop. The updated version, with a multicultural cast, depicts Jesus and followers in the sort of clothes you’d see on any college campus. Godspell’s Jesus is teacher, mentor, friend and peacenik. Because the show focuses on his humanity more than his divinity, it appeals to people of all faiths ... and even to those without much faith. In her November 2011 USA Today review of the Broadway revival, Elysa Gardner wrote, “Regardless of your faith, or lack of it, you'll leave this Godspell a believer in the transporting power of musical theater.” If you doubt the crossover appeal of a musical rooted in the Bible, take note of “Day by Day,” the Godspell song about seeking a closer relationship with God that reached No. 13 on the Billboard chart in the summer of 1972. The song is now so ingrained in pop culture that Ben Stiller used it to surprisingly hilarious effect when he recited it as a blessing at the dinner table in Meet the Parents. Godspell’s timeless message of peace, love and redemption – and the show’s high-flying energy – will leave you saying “Amen.” — Article by Page Leggett

Opera Carolina’s Opera Express Set to ‘Bring the House Down’ With The Three Little Pigs

O

pera Express, the educational touring company of Opera Carolina, has begun a tour to present an operatic version of the classic fable “The Three Little Pigs” to students at nearly 50 elementary schools. The tour began Oct. 21. Since 1971, Opera Express has introduced nearly 1.5 million students to the joy of opera. These productions help children see opera as a fun art form and help teachers use it as a classroom resource. Designed for children in kindergarten through fifth grade, Opera Express performances are accompanied by study guide activities that address N.C. and national curriculum standards in English, arts, music and more. In this version of The Three Little Pigs – set to the music of Mozart operas – brother pigs build their homes of sticks and straw while their sister learns about home construction at the library and builds her house with bricks. After Wolfgang Bigbad blows down the pigs’ shoddily constructed homes, the brothers take refuge at their sister’s solidly built house and learn an important lesson about reading and being prepared. The message promoting the value of literacy is reinforced by student/teacher study guides and creative materials on the Opera website, plus Opera Carolina community volunteers will visit classrooms to

share their favorite books with students. The Three Little Pigs travels this fall and next spring for 10 weeks to elementary schools across North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia, with a special focus on CMS Title I Schools. “It is a thrill to introduce young people to the artistry of opera,” said James Meena, general director and principal conductor of Opera Carolina. Children always make enthusiastic audiences, and it’s a delight to perform for them.” This year’s Opera Express sponsors include title sponsor Duke Energy Foundation; American Tire Distributors; Charlotte Area Rotary Clubs; Husqvarna; Jimmie Johnson Foundation; Kilpatrick Townsend Stockton; King & Spalding; McAfee; Snyder'sLance; TOA Technologies; and Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice, LLP. Since 2009, Opera Express has been funded by donations to the Opera’s Spark Campaign, an initiative designed to build private support for cultural programming in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools and the surrounding region. The campaign goal for the 2013-14 school year is $90,000 to keep Opera Express engaging young audiences. Opera Express is part of Opera Carolina’s Education Department, which also offers The Opera Carolina Academy, Student Night at the Opera and Master Classes for regional university students.

Conductor Albert-George Schram will lead the orchestra, Oratorio Singers of Charlotte, Charlotte Children’s Choir and a host of spectacular guests through songs, including “O Tannenbaum,” “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” “Sleigh Ride,” Overture to Die Fledermaus and “Jingle Bells,” to name just a few.

DIRECTOR’S NOTE

t was in spring 2011, during a private tour of Tchaikovsky’s country retreat just outside of Moscow, that I decided to make The Sleeping Beauty my next project. What better way to celebrate our company’s 25th birthday? I returned home to London with a waltz in my step and a summer of research stretching before me. I started by reading all the versions of the story that I could find. Of course, they have much in common, but there are big differences, too. The Grimms’ version, known as “Little Briar Rose,” is much closer than Perrault’s original to the story we all know, while the Disney animated film version allowed itself more liberties than one might have expected. I took something from each of these versions, but when one is approaching Sleeping Beauty as a piece of dance theatre, it is the music that Tchaikovsky wrote for his collaboration with choreographer Marius Petipa that must provide the structure. What the ballet score gives you that the fairy tale does not is reasons to dance, or ideas for dance: fairy variations, a lengthy vision scene, a hunting scene and several pas de deux, trois and quatre. It dictates the action and adds emotion, drama and character. In fact it becomes the script. When I first looked at this story I also asked myself what made it less than satisfying as a narrative. Two things were clear, in the ballet scenario at least: no love story and no narrative tension in the last act once Aurora has woken up. Unless you believe in love at first sight, Aurora’s love for her Prince is unconvincing, with the hero and heroine only really meeting at the very end of the story. It’s impossible to feel anything for them. Interestingly, Walt Disney, one of the 20th century’s great storytellers, also recognized this flaw in the story for a modern audience. In his 1959 retelling, Aurora as a young girl meets her Prince, thinking he is a commoner, and falls in love just before her fate is sealed with the prick of her finger. The dilemma becomes that of how the Prince can break the spell and keep their love alive, creating a beautiful tragic love story and a logical and dramatic tension in one stroke. Thank you, Walt! In our version, Aurora’s blossoming love for Leo, her childhood sweetheart, is cut short by the fulfillment of Carabosse’s curse. The dilemma becomes “how can he still be around for her when she wakes up in 100 years’ time.” I leave you to guess what happens, but a clue could be in the name of our “Lilac Fairy” figure, Count Lilac! (The Sleeping Beauty ballet has fairies, spells, magical curses and the like, so why not

vampires, too? Our subtle use of that myth serves as a valuable plot device.) Disney also recognized one of the central themes of the story: good vs. evil. He built up the character of Carabosse (Maleficent in the film) to keep that central battle going right to the end of the story. The Tchaikovsky ballet creates a wonderfully malevolent musical world for Carabosse in the Prologue, but then those themes barely appear again in the ballet, thereby sidelining this great character. I believe we have solved that narrative problem as well with the introduction of another new character, Carabosse’s faithful son Caradoc. All versions of The Sleeping Beauty begin with the lines “Once upon a time there was a King and Queen who had not been blessed with an heir” or “could not have a child” or some such phrase. I have taken this as the tale’s starting point and tried to give the dark fairy Carabosse a more compelling motive for doing harm to the child. Maybe the royal couple went to the dark side to obtain a child to call their own? This, in turn, threw up lots of ideas about Aurora herself. Was she the child of an ordinary working family rather than a royal princess? A gypsy child? An interesting character formed in my mind: a feisty, natureloving wild child, happier running through the forest barefoot than living the stuffy life of a princess. In movement terms, and considering our timeline, as a young girl she could be an Isadora Duncan figure – a new kind of forward-looking, emancipated young woman. As well as being a classic good vs. evil story, Sleeping Beauty is also about growing up and rebirth – what contemporary writers would call a “rites of passage” story. It is also full of fascinating symbolism. The prick of the finger and the letting of blood are clearly symbolic of a young girl’s journey into womanhood. At the end of the story the “kiss” of true love, and the eventual acceptance of the Prince, who has also had to prove his manhood, suggest that they are now both ready for physical love and fulfillment. The “sleep” also seems to symbolize that lethargic period in teenagers’ lives when they don’t want to engage with the world and their parents often want to “protect” them and prevent them from growing up too quickly. One tends to think of these as modern concerns, but I was encouraged to read how Petipa was saying just this in his original ideas for the ballet’s famous “Rose Adage.” Today the “Rose Adage” is all about the ballerina balancing on pointe, on one leg, with

17B


DIRECTOR’S NOTE her arms above her head (an invention, incidentally, of Dame Margot Fonteyn some 50 years or so after the balletwas created). Petipa actually took his inspiration from the commedia dell’arte, in which a young man would present a rosebud to his beloved as a token of their blossoming love. If she accepted, she was declaring her affection in turn. In Petipa’s original choreography, Aurora takes a rose from each of her noble suitors, but then throws them dismissively to the floor, as if to say, “I’m not ready for love (or sex) yet.” In today’s more prettified versions, she is more likely to hand the roses to her mother, the Queen, who sniffs them sweetly. Quite a different meaning! One of the things that initially attracted me about this story was the enormous narrative timeline. To make it really exciting, I felt immediately that we had to end up in the present day. As good luck would have it, by a process of working backwards, we ended with Aurora’s birth at the time of the ballet’s creation in 1890, and with her coming-of-age in the famously golden Edwardian summer of 1911. This presented Lez Brotherston with many challenges and the most costumes he has ever had to design for one of our pieces. Similarly, the recreation of the different eras – we have attempted to give a flavour of the dance styles of each period – has meant that the company has had

to be extremely versatile. Act I, set in 1890, the year of the Petipa ballet’s creation, takes on the feeling of a classical ballet complete with fairy variations (solos) giving more than a passing nod to the Petipa originals. Act II is set in 1911, when the waltz was still king, but we suggest the introduction of “new dance crazes” from America, inspired by the legendary dancing partnership of Vernon and Irene Castle – the Castle Walk and the Maxixe in particular. Act III, in which Leo (our Prince figure) enters the “land of the sleepwalkers” where Aurora is trapped until saved by a kiss, is led by our heroine’s personality and a free and spirited dance style inspired by Isadora Duncan. Act IV, set in the present day, finds Aurora about to be wed. The movement is boldly confrontational, confident, sensual and dangerous, the unsettling atmosphere more suggestive of a cult ritual than a fairy-tale wedding! Right from the beginning of this project, I insisted that whatever logic I applied to it, or whatever inventions my collaborators and I came up with, it must still be a fairy story beginning with “Once upon a time…” If I have taken a few liberties with Tchaikovsky, I hope he will forgive, as he, above all others, is the reason why I had to make this piece. Having completed the last of his trio of ballets, I humbly dedicate this production to his memory.

He is the creator of the world’s longest running ballet production (Swan Lake), a five - time Olivier Award winner, and the only British director to have won the Tony Award for both Best Choreographer and Best Director of a Musical. Matthew Bourne has been the Artistic Director of New Adventures (formally Adventures in Motion Pictures) since 1987. During these 25 years, he has created new audiences for dance with ground-breaking work both at home and internationally, including Nutcracker!, Highland Fling, Swan Lake, Cinderella, The Car Man, Play Without Words, Edward Scissorhands, Dorian Gray and Sleeping Beauty. Bourne has also choreographed several major revivals of classic musicals including Cameron Mackintosh’s productions of Oliver! (1994 and 2009) and My Fair Lady (2002). In 2004 Bourne co-directed (with Richard Eyre) and choreographed (with Stephen Mear) the West End and Broadway hit musical, Mary Poppins. Bourne has been twice nominated as Best director at the Olivier Awards and his achievements in choreography have been recognised with over 50 international awards including the Evening Standard Award, South Bank Show Award, Time Out Award and the Astaire Award for Dance on Broadway.

WHO’S WHO New Adventures Directors Matthew Bourne, Robert Noble Artistic Director Matthew Bourne Associate Artistes Scott Ambler, Lez Brotherston, Paule Constable, Terry Davies, Paul Groothuis and Etta Murfitt Assistant to Matthew Bourne Suzanne Boguzas Executive Director, Re:Bourne James Mackenzie-Blackman Producer, Re:Bourne Helen ProsseR NEW ADVENTURES is the UK’s most indemand contemporary Dance/Theatre touring company. Under the inspired leadership of Artistic Director, Matthew Bourne, it has, over the last 25 years, changed the landscape of British dance with an award-winning repertory of works that have brought unprecedented new audiences to theatres throughout the UK and internationally. Matthew Bourne and his team of world-class collaborators have consistently produced some of the most successful dance productions ever staged. Since its formation in 2002, NEW ADVENTURES has created an enviable repertory of acclaimed new works (Play Without Words, Edward Scissorhands, Dorian Gray, Lord Of The Flies and Sleeping Beauty) as well as new productions of popular favourites from Matthew Bourne’s former company, Adventures In Motion Pictures, (1987-2002) Nutcracker!, Swan Lake, Highland Fling, The Car Man, Cinderella and the mixed programme Early Adventures. The Company regularly employs over 60 dancers annually, and they are widely recognised as the finest group of actor/dancers working in the UK today. NEW ADVENTURES is proud to be Resident Company at Sadler’s Wells Theatre, London where it regularly performs record-breaking extended seasons. The Company annually undertakes extensive countrywide touring, appearing at more venues and giving more performances each year than any other UK dance company. British dance’s biggest export for over 10 years, New Adventures has performed seasons at the world’s most iconic venues (Sydney Opera House, New York City Center, The Chatalet in Paris, The Kennedy Center, Washington and

The Moscow Arts Theatre), the most prestigious Festivals (Edinburgh, Ravenna and Chekhov International Festivals) and regularly tours to Japan, the USA, Australia, Europe and Russia. Mixing popular appeal with a ground-breaking and unique theatrical language, New Adventures is one of the great success stories of British Theatre. The Company has notched up a staggering ten Olivier nominations for its productions, has won the Manchester Evening News Dance Award four times and was given a Special TMA award for its commitment to national touring. New Adventures has also been a pioneer in taking dance to wider audiences through the medium of film. Matthew Bourne’s Nutcracker! is the only full length dance production to be shown on BBC1 in the last 30 years; a studio adaptation of The Car Man is still a dance bestseller, and the recent recording of Swan Lake by Sky Arts 3D became the first ballet to be shot in 3D for cinema and DVD release. The new recording of Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty is currently being broadcast worldwide, and can also be seen in cinemas and on DVD and Blu-ray. In 2008 the company created its charitable wing, Re:Bourne, which aims to inspire and encourage young people and adults, with a year round programme of creative projects, workshops and educational initiatives based on the New Adventures ethos of dance theatre. This was followed in 2010 by the launch of The New Adventures Choreographer Award (NACA) which showcases the work of a young choreographer, and was created to honour Bourne’s 50th Birthday. Last year’s 25th Anniversary celebration saw the company performing six diverse works at thirty two UK venues. This culminated in the world premiere of Matthew Bourne’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty in October 2012. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (Composer) Born in Votkinsk in 1840, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was attracted to music at a very early age. He originally studied to be a lawyer and after passing his exams became a civil servant. However, as soon as the St Petersburg conservatory was founded in 1862 he left his job and enrolled as a student of music. His avid interest in his subject gained him excellent diplomas and he was soon appointed to the post of professor at the Moscow conservatory. Tchaikovskyís early attempts at composition proved to be unsuccessful and he lived a poor hand-to-mouth existence until 1876 when he met a wealthy patron, Nadezhda von Meck. A curious contract was drawn up whereby his benefactor agreed to look after his

17G


WHO’S WHO material needs provided that they never met and maintained contact only through correspondence. Tchaikovsky is perhaps the most Russian of all Russian composers, drawing on traditional folk themes and ëWesternisingí them through lavish orchestrations. His prolific musical output exceeds even that of Rimsky-Korsakov and his instinct led him to symphonic works and ballet scores, though for practical financial reasons he also wrote ten operas and much chamber music for his own enjoyment. He achieved greatest acclaim with his ballet scores: Swan Lake (1877 in Moscow and 1895 in St Petersburg); The Sleeping Beauty (1890); and The Nutcracker (1891). His first score, Swan Lake, was not well received when first presented. The choreography was poor, the production was created from old Bolshoi sets and costumes, and the orchestra played badly, claiming the music was too difficult to play. It was only through the enormous success of the other scores that Swan Lake was revived in 1895 with new choreography by Marius Petipa (Acts One and Three) and Lev Ivanov (Acts Two and Four). Tchaikovsky never found contentment in his life, his music always expressed a certain pessimism, and his marriage was disastrous, causing him to attempt suicide in 1878. He died tragically in St Petersburg in 1893, just eight days after conducting the first performance of his Pathétique Symphony.

Nutcracker: A Holiday Tradition

T

he Nutcracker ballet is the most popular in the world. The ballet, following the story of a young girl named Clara, has been adapted by hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada. Based on the book “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King,” a dark story by E.T.A. Hoffman, the Nutcracker ballet hasn’t always been so popular. The first performance of the Nutcracker was in December of 1892 at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia. The ballet was composed by Peter Tchaikovsky, conducted by Riccardo Drigo and choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. Ivanov took over after Petipa became ill. Neither critics nor the audience liked it. The current popularity of the Nutcracker is due in part to Willam Christensen, former ballet master of the San Francisco Ballet. Christensen imported the Nutcracker to the United States in 1944. Next, George Balanchine decided to choreograph his own version for the New York City Ballet in 1954, and since then the Nutcracker has become a winter tradition in the United States. As dancers, North Carolina Dance

Theatre’s Artistic Director Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux and Associate Artistic Director Patricia McBride performed in Balanchine’s Nutcracker hundreds of times. “Mr. Balanchine’s Nutcracker celebrates children and the magic of the holiday season,” said Bonnefoux. “I work to do the same in my version of the Nutcracker.” Many versions of the Nutcracker exist today. Hawaiians added the hula and Canadians added hockey. There is a version that’s set in the ’60s and even one performed on ice. With a jovial party scene, a majestic snow fall and a glittering Land of Sweets, Bonnefoux’s version for N.C. Dance Theatre is mostly traditional, incorporating whimsical elements and dynamic characters. The Charlotte Symphony provides live accompaniment. “We’re pleased to bring the time-honored holiday tradition of the Nutcracker to the Charlotte area year after year,” said Bonnefoux. “It’s the type of ballet that has something for everyone, and we invite families to celebrate the magic of the holidays with us this December.”

The snow scene is one of the most popular scenes in the Nutcracker.
