Peter and the Wolf
| I'm so excited to see the ballet. 'Peter and the Wolf' is a classic.
Natalia Mstislav Zinovia will be staring, she's gorgeous and
Yakim Vyacheslav Svyatoslav a legend in his time. Oh, yes
the ballerinas have begun their faun like dance through the black
forest. Oh, look here comes Yakim with an axe. The fauns are
scattering. What's this do I hear a hunting trumpet? Those are
real hounds! Natalia has been flushed out! Look out for the...
spring net trap!
This is fantastic. The set is full of real trees and barberry bushes.
Tutus are flying.. I think Natalia is chewing her way through the
net. Yes! She's free! Look at her role off that baberry bush. What
a trooper. Yakim is swinging his axe! Natalia is safe. That was close
her tiara is embebed in the tree with Yakim's axe. She's leaping
into a triple spin: spurning gravity and catches Yakim in a scissor
head lock with her legs. He's turning bright colors in his face.
Here come the hounds to the rescuce. They leap up and bite at
Natalia's lovely pink flowing wood nymph dress. The dogs are dragging
her down, but she wont release Yakim from her death grip. His eyes
are popping out. I cry out bravo! Oh, they've fallen into the lap of the
happy brook; played by Sasha Petya Innokenti. She's just perfect.
I think if Sasha remains still the hounds wont bite her. Wait she has
a fire hose! Sasha is blowing the hounds off Natalia!
I have never witnessed such pageantry. Yakim is getting a face full of
the happy brook. The fauns are beating off the hounds with branches.
Now, they're point dancing in a line. I can hear the hunter's trumpet.
Bang! A blunderbuss; look at the smoke from that cannon. A few fauns
are down, the rest are scattering. Natalia and Sasha turn the fire hose on
the hunters. The hunters are spinning on their backs into a side wing
display of blue berry bushes.
Yakim is leaping, with two wide scissor jumps, for the fire hose!
He's got it! Natalia and Sasha are pummeling Yakim, but he wont let
go of the hose. My God!!! A standing ovation. Is that the wolf? Looks
more like a Coyote... Hmmmmm played by Muzzy. The wolf has
snatched Sasha by the back of her tights! He's tossing her butt first
into a blue berry bush. Sasha is cursing in Russian. Natalia is biting
Yakim's left ear. Yakim is still holding the hose!
Yummy! Blue berries are bouncing into my lap! The happy brook is
kicking the wolf. .. The fauns have circled around the drenched
hunters and are beating them with branches. Are they playing Checov?
The wolf has pulled Sasha tights over a stump. She is still point dancing!
Yakim is hosing Sasha. She is still point dancing! Natalia has a hard
clutch on Yakim. He is attempting to free himself with three scissor
jumps! Here comes the Wolf!
Oooooooooooooo! The Wolf has given Natalia a wedgy. She's hanging
from a plum tree. And Yakim is hosing her. What a performance!
I have to send a contribution to PBS. The Fauns have circled Yakim
and the Wolf. Their beating them with branches! Yes! Natalia and Sasha
are freed! Bravo! Bravo! Standing ovation!
