Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 1, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TuMday, October 1, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 7 Royal Albert Hall concerts end run LONDON (CP) A capaci- ty audience joined lustily in a rendition of Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Je- rusalem, the traditional win- dup of the eight-week run of Promenade Concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. For 80 years the summer series has rejuvenated the gloomy Victorian building, with large, predominantly young concert-goers. A fountain plays in the cen- tral promenade between per- formances and the BBC broadcasts every note of the 55 performances to an audience of 150 million on its domestic and international radio services. When the Proms were in- augurated by the late Sir Henry Wood, long before music festivals became a world-wide phenomenon, they offered programs that leaned heavily on the light classics in an effort to build an audience. Today, with packed houses assured, the repertoire ranges widely. It includes operas, not only standbys like Mozart's Marriage of Figaro but lesser- known works like Katya Kaba- nova by the Czech composer Leo Janacek and one-acters such as Gustay Hoist's Savitri and Maurice Ravel's L'Heure Espagnole. Robert Ponsonby, BBC director of music, who took over direction of the Proms this year, turned over a por- tion of one concert to band the usual Sousa marches but works composed for brass bands by Edward Elgar, Hoist, Percy Grainger and the young avant-garde composer Harrison Birtwistle. Major choral works per- formed this year included Ar- nold Gurrelieder and Hoist's Hymn of Jesus, both marking the centenary of their composer's birth. The closing concert, devoted entirely to British music, included Sir William Walton's oratorio Belshazzar's Feast, scored for massed 'choirs and extra brass bands. The 72-year-old composer attended the performance, conducted by Sir Charles Groves. Save Our Ballet drive may not hit objective SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Ballerinas turn pirouettes in department store windows, dancers costumed as bears carry signs reading "S.O.B." and school girls spend their afternoon ringing doorbells to raise money. It's all part of a city-wide, fund raising effort to keep the San Francisco-Ballet the oldest surviving classical ballet company in the United States from becoming culture's latest sacrifice to inflation. "S.O.B." Save Our Ballet is the rallying cry of a drive that must come ap with by Sept. 30. A spokesman for the ballet said Mon- day that had been raised by the weekend. Without the money, say the directors, the com- pany will go the way of the National Ballet of Washington, D.C., which fold- ed earlier this year because of financial woes. "The threat is said Mrs. Jay Feldman, former dancer with the com- pany and now vice-president of its auxiliary. "Its impact immediately brings up the question to young dancers of 'How secure is Closing would end San Fran- cisco's annual Christmas season performances of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker ballet, a tradition started in 1944, 11 years after the com- pany's founding. It also would mean folding the affiliated San Francisco School of Ballet, which currently has 350 aspiring dancers from all over the country.

"The French films seem to dominate the Canadian scene says the Rome daily II Tempo. "And their inten- tions, including their aim of always turning their backs on the American cinema, are crystal clear." There were bouquets too for the French language direc- tors from another important Rome daily, II Messaggero. "Although often impulsive and unpolished, the French films show original II Messaggero says. "They are seeking a style of their own Crowd pleaser Ken Shook, acrobatic and comedy star of ice show Ice Capades makes debut in Lethbridge Oct. 10th With the advent of movies and television, most spec- tacles are pre wrapped and pre packed. They're syn- thetic, celluloid visions of an artificial world. Even the laughter is canned. But there are some excep- tions. Some great shows still exist where real live people entertain real live audiences, like the 33rd edition of Ice Capades, opening Thursday, Oct. 10, through Sunday, Oct. 13, .for seven performances in Lethbridge's new Sportsplex. Headlining the cast of championship skaters is. the 1973 World Champion, Karen Magnussen. Karen, who was also North American Cham- pion and five time Canadian Champion, will present two special numbers in the all new Ice Capades. LAVISH PRODUCTION This year, Ice Capades opens with the lavish produc- tion, 'S saluting George and Ira Gershwin. Highlighting the production is a solo by 'the lovely Adelle Boucher. The exciting adagio team, Montaigne and Blake, are also featured in this segment. Before the drop of a hat, we enter the weird and wonderful world of hats, where you meet a myriad of characters who literally flip their lids over the hero, Mark, portrayed by acrobatic skater Ken Shook. A kiddie ride of delightful derby hats allows children in the audience an op- portunity to become a part of the show. Clap your hands and join the "Celebration" as Ice Capades captures the emotional inten- sity of a down South tent revival. Swedish and Scan- dinavian Champion Ann Margret Frei lends her own deeply emotional interpretive skating to this production. Ice Capades is also sprinkl- ed with top ice comedians. It's a risky business, but star Vic Zoble is used to the business of trampo diving. It's a totally new sport and a totally new act for to present. You see, Vic doesn't skate! Stock and MacDonald do skate, and join forces in a hysterical comedy routine, dressed as a couple of sailors. Wes and Chris demonstrate a new type of comedy with the help of two chairs. Acrobatics on ice? Ice Capades introduces to the professional ranks the Fabulous Fentons. Five children; ranging in age from seven to 15, are first genera- tion circus performers transplanted to ice. Star performer Glenn Parriott skates a special electrifying performance to the sounds of Broadway. The graceful style of Dan and Lisa is one of the highlights of any production. Following their featured pair number, they will display their exciting adagio style in the production, "Ding a Ling." Decidedly not a ding a ling is Sheri Thrapp, as she proves in her jazz like number. BALLET ON SKATES The second half of the show takes you to the ethereal world of "Atlantis." Ice Capades' ballet skates to the piercing sounds of an electrifying synthesizer, pulsating to the beat of im- aginative melodies written es- pecially for the spectacle. Dynamic Rick Earhart gives a sparkling perfor- mance, and there's even a beautiful Neptune lady swimming serenely inside a gigantic transparent bubble. It's back to the Frantic '40s, the Fabulous '50s and the Swinging '60s when Ice Capades takes you on a "Sen- timental Journey." Here, all the sights, sounds and dances that were popular during these decades are recaptured. For the grand finale, the en- tire cast of Ice Capades salutes the sounds of the big band, era with a special tribute to Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong. "Say It With Music" is a fitting end to the great American road show, Ice Capades. Farmer busy CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Wheat Pool reported Monday night that good harvesting weather last week, a welcome break from earlier frosts that damaged the yield and quality of Alberta crops, kept farmers in the province busy. The pool said that at least one third of the barley, rapeseed and wheat now is in storage bins. Show Times and turning. European influences into something approaching individuality." After a last day's viewing of Rejeanne Padovani by Denys Arcand and Bar Salon by newcomer Andre Forcier, II Messaggero praises the "in- digenous" character of Canada's French language cinema "The daily struggle to preserve a minority per- sonality in the heart of a bigger, richer majority." Picking out Bar Salon and O.K. La Liberte by Marcel Carriere, II Messaggero com- pliments in both movies "the acute observation where irony, melancholy and tenderness mingle with warm -hearted but not vacuous social analysis." "And if an ample narrative 'Disc jockeys' Lightfoot fans line is II Messaggero says, "There is at least a feeling of freshness." The paper acknowledges the technical superiority of the English language Canadian films shown here this week, but compares them generally with "run of the mill U.S. movies." Linking the French and English language cinemas was the "excellent quality of the II Messaggero says. It picks out for special men- tion Donald Sutherland, in Paul Almond's L'Acte du Coeur, and Genevieve Bujold. paramount TONIGHT thru THURS. at and p.m. ADULT. NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN New York Times Service MONTREAL "Every time a new Gordon Lightfoot record comes a disc jockey here told his listeners, "disc jockeys all over Canada rejoice. "The reason is that Gordon Lightfoot is a Canadian. Playing the singer's records therefore not only pleases the radio audience but conforms to the government regulation that 30 per cent of all the records played by AM radio stations here be Canadian. The so called "Canadian content already applied across a broad range of radio and television-broadcasting, is being debated anew these days as the government con- siders proposals to expand it. It is one of an increasing number of nationalistic measures being imposed to protect the Canadian culture from being overwhelmed by influences from the United States. Like the government assistance to Canadian motion picture makers- or the new restrictions on ownership of businesses by United States businesses, the broadcasting regulations reflect a new desire to build up this country's own institutions and -keep control of them. "It's an acknowledgement that there's an enormous machinery working to the GORDON LIGHTFOOT south of from which we must protect said Sjer Frenken, an official of the Canadian Radio and Television Commission. The commission, which polices the airwaves, roughly as the federal com- munications does in the United States, has scheduled what .is likely to be a lively public hearing in October to consider .its latest proposal. That proposal is. for the Canadian content regulation to be broadened to include all commercials broadcast on AM radio stations in this country and 80 per cent of the commercials broadcast on television. green acres drive-in PARAMOUNT THEATRE CHINATOWN: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: No Short Subjects ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PARAMOUNT CINEMA Short Subjects: NOT NOW DARLING: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: RESTRICTED COLLEGE CINEMA Short Subjects: DIRTY MARY CRAZY LARRY: LAST COMPLETE SHOW: ADULT ENTERTAINMENT GREEN ACRES DRIVE IN THE CONVERSATION: MAN ON A SWING: ONE COMPLETE SHOW: GATES OPEN: ADULT ENTERTAINMENT ADULT ENTERTAINMENT WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY RICHARD HARRIS ROMY SCHHEIDER "THE HERO' A HIM BY RICHARD HARRIS TECHNICOLOR- ;PG!
