ANOTHER RESOUNDING SUCCESS!
SUKHISHVILI NATIONAL BALLET OF GEORGIA!
NOVEMBER 7, 2010
AVERY FISHER HALL, LINCOLN CENTER – 2,500 TICKETS SOLD!
CHEERS AND STANDING OVATIONS!
12 CURTAIN CALLS!!
“The Georgian National Ballet Sukhishvili-Ramishvili was presented by International Concerts on November 7 at New York’s Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center . Well before the show, the entrance of Avery Fisher Hall was crowded with people asking for any available tickets. During the performance, the crowded hall frequently burst into wild applause with shouts of “bravo” and standing ovations.. At the conclusion there was a deafening ovation – The audience would not let the artists leave the stage and begged them to continue the show. …
The ensemble was honed to perfection with perfectly synchronized movements of the dancers in massive numbers. They demonstrated amazing technique and athleticism. Their extraordinary individual ability was exhibited in “competitive” solos, where each dancer was featured individually, gathering the harvest of applause. Their costumes accurately reflect national traditions with every regional group of Georgia represented.
“The ensemble reflects the emotional daring spirit of the Georgian nation, its invincible vitality and a touching romanticism. I was particularly impressed by the elegant and always surprising choreography, which combines the ancient canons of traditional dance, and innovative aesthetics that goes back to Diaghilev, Fokine and Balanchine.” Diana C. Stomsvik, President of International Concerts, organizer of the tour, told Voice of America”
