Provincial Russian Sleeping Beauty
Jan 2020 • Friends
I’ve not seen as many Sleeping Beauties as I have Nutcrackers.

This was not one of the best.

Pretty, colourful. Touring version with recorded score.

Pared back. First half slow. Carabosse a waste of time.

Second half divertissements were well danced, especially bluebird and Aurora and her prince.

Possibly the best Nutcracker ever
Dec 2018 • Friends
OK, I’ve seen 40+ productions over the years, by nearly 20 different companies. There are four great productions, the two by Peter Wright for the Royal and Birmingham Royal Ballet, the Paris Opera Ballet - all grand versions from big companies - and then the beauty of Peter Darrell’s version recently restated by Scottish Ballet.

I think the British lyric style of dance pioneered by Fred Ashton suits the Nutcracker and both Darrel and Wright learned their craft at his fee

I’ve seen and enjoyed Mark Morris’ Hard Nut, Mathew Bourne’s AMP workhouse escape version, both of which I enjoyed.

There have been turkeys along the way. Both the Bolshoi and Kirov versions suck. Varna Opera Ballet was so terrible I left at the interval.

Compania Nacional Danza don’t have a big classic tradition, so I approached with caution.

First the venue. A bit out of the way in the suburbs. But it’s a great space. Good public areas and facilities. About 20-25 years old. Large auditorium with impressive sight lines and some of the most comfortable seats I’ve ever sat in. Raked stage, ideal for dance. It appears from programming to be making a bid to be the dance venue for Barcelona.

Convenient parking. Lots of eateries close by for after.

The orchestra was the local symphony, there is a difference between playing a concert and the strict best required for ballet. Act 1 was nearly there. Act 2 they nailed it. They were applauded rapturously.

Sets were imaginative, stripped back, suited for touring. But the did the job very well. Special mention to the simple impression of a Christmas tree which resolved and transformed magically. The kingdom of snow back cloth was beautiful. Act 2 was danced in front of a cyclorama cloth. That and just legs maximised the stage for dancing.

And that’s what it’s all about. The party scene is always slow. Lots of business for the kids and the magic from Drosselmeyer was good. The fights between the mouse queen and babies and the soldiers was well imagined and executed. The transition to the kingdom of snow was amazing and the snow flakes, all of them, 18, danced beautifully, filling the stage.

Act 2 is just virtuoso dance pieces. No story. All of them excelled, special mention to Spanish, Arabian and Russians. The sugar plum fairy and her prince were perfect, as was Clara and the nutcracker prince.

The denouement when it all end and Clara awakens, was it dream or nightmare, was skilfully handled, as was the sinister presence of Drosselmeyer. Had he conjured the whole thing, did he have evil designs on Clara himself?

We shall never know.

I can now say that there are 5 great productions. This is one of them. Possibly in the top three.

Performances, only 2, were a sell out, full house. They could have run it for a fortnight. It deserves to be seen.

We went to the yearly festival Petits Camaleons and enjoyed the concerts while confortably seated. We have been there a few more times in our kids dance festivals as well...the facilities are neat and surrounded by nice places to eat.

Auditorium in Sant Cugat - great shows outside BCN
Sep 2012 • Friends
Ths theatre also doubles up as a concert hall.
It is probably best for Opera or musicals, although stand up comics also do well here.
The booking office is hidden, next door to the cinema and they do offer interesting discount booklets if you go at the beginning of the season.
The bar, once inside the Auditori, Is cozy and also has food available (though I have never tried it)
Opposite the Auditori is a whole area full of bars, restaurants and live music at weekends.
Enjoy!
