Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 - THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD - Monday, January 14, 1974 Distinctive' Nutcracker ballet coming to West By JAMES'NELSON OTTAWA (CP) - Everyone knows that Clara is the name of the little girl whose Christmas present in Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker ballet is shaped like a wooden soldier. Not so, says Bonnie Wyckoff, 19, principal dancer of the Royal Winnipeg Ballett, who will be featured in a distinctive version of the Nutcracker when it goes on tour in Western Canada later this month. Cellist visits ill friend LONDON (AP) - Soviet cellist Mstislav Rostropovich has arrived here for a two-day visit with his friend, Benjamin Britten, British composer -conductor who has been ill for some weeks. Rostropovich came here from Paris, where two days ago he appeared in concert. TAKE A GENTLE LAXATIVE From the makers of TUMS Take gentle-acting Nt... Nature's remedy! Ni is an all-vegetable laxative. For over 70 years, Nt has been giving folks pleasant, effective relief overnight, m tonight... tomorrow alright! mOUlAM-CHOCOlAJt COAIlO-tUNlOU The girl's name originally was Maria, and Qara was the name of her doll. THe names got mixed sometime in the 82 years since Tchaikovsky wrote The Nutcracker and the Mouse King for the St. Petersburg Ballet. So when the Royal Winnipeg takes Nutcracker to Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Regina, Miss Wyckoff will dance the role of Maria, who is given a pair of dancing slippers for her birthday and goes to the theatre. The new version of the classic ballet has been choreographed by John Neumeier, transforming it into a production that avoids the Christmas cliche and is suitable for performance at any time of year. Miss Wyckoff has never danced the part of Clara in the conventional Christmas version of the ballet. She said in an interview that Clara is not really a dancer's role, but just that of a little girl, usually played by a junior ballet student. In the Neumeier version, Maria has to be an accomplished dancer. DIFFICULT PART "There's some very difficult dancing, and complicated acting too," she said. "It's not a shallow part at all. In Neumeier's production, it involved her whole personality. Everything that happens is a product of her personality." Maria is 12 in the ballet, and receives ballet slippers as a birthday present from her dancing master. He takes her to the theatre, and the ballet is about all that she thinks at that tender age.

V Canllnulnc Uucatiwi OHIm SOUTHERN ALBERTA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY OOl-Wlh AMniM N.W,Calwry,ANMrta Miss Wyckoff said her mother went to Winnipeg last year from Boston and saw nine performances. Each time she found new shades of meaning in the work, it is choreographed "in so many layers, so many levels," the petite young dancer said. She grew up in Boston and the Boston ballet school, becoming principal dancer there until she joined the Royal Winnipeg last year. "I was looking for a ballet company with a more adventurous repertoire, and this company certainly has it. Also, the staff is so energetic and talented." Brandons ex-wife to wed LAS VEGAS, Nev.

The Southern Alberta Opera Association will take you there Feb. 7 and 9, in the Jubilee Auditorium, Calgary, when it presents Carmen, one of the top ten international opera favorites. Bizet captured completely the glint and glow of Ibemian grandeur, the rhythmic click of castillian castanets; the mystique of the Spanish corridor; and the portent of doom divided in the cards. The music glitters with sparkling, brilliantly orchestrated tunes, and with its continuously flowing habanera melodies and flamenco rhythms, the opera rings true throughout to the Spanish temperament and atmosphere, although Bizet had never been to Spain or Cuba. Written almost 100 years ago, the Carmen story is exciting and more believable than most operas. Set to the Nora Rose exquisitely sensuous musical score that has mesmorized opera adherents the world over. Carmen will be vividly brought to life by the Southern Alberta Opera Association. Artistic Director Alexander Gray has assembled and melded a remarkable cast of sought-after artists. Dr. Herman Geiger-Torel, just completing the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Opera Company as general manager, will stage direct this colorful production, and Harman Haakman who recently delighted symphony audiences, will be the conductor, with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. Singing the title role, Ann Howard of Covent Garden has been acclaimed a "no-nonsense Carmen", a high spirited gypsy girl, with too many men in her life. She sings with a feeling for Bizet's music which gives it fresh impact. Ermanno Mauro returns to Catgary audiences as the spirited Don Jose, whose scruples constantly battle with his emotions. Degraded and desperate, he finally stabs the gypsy who taunted him. Allan Monk, who has one of the richest baritone voices around, will be heard as the dashing toreador, Escamillo, -jilso infatuated by Carmen. Making an enviable name for himself in his many appearances with the San Francisco Opera Company, and the Canadian Opera Company, Allan Monk has been warmly welcomed in many Calgary appearances recently. t^arol Ann Looman, well-known Calgarian, now with the Canadian Opera Company, sings the role of Micaela, the peasant girl who shines like a good deed in a naughty world. Lucien: Lorieau of Edmonton, Nora Rose of Lethbridge, and Calgarians Loralee Monro, Ernest Atkinson and Roy Glover, will appear in supporting roles. Chorus Master James Beer will augment his supurb Rigoletto Chorus in the colorful settings; and a children's chorus and dancers will complete the brilliant ensemble.
