Puzzling fact about signed photo for Sir Anton Dolin

Ballerina Evgeniya Biber once singed a photo for Sir Anton Dolin. The photo where she portrayed Marie Antoinette in ballet "The Flame of Paris" contained good wishes in Russian.

And the puzzling about this action is the fact that these two artists had never met.

They, of course, would have a lot to talk about – both dancing for Diaghilev ten years apart, but that was probably not the reason for their connection in late 1960s.

Dolin has never been to Leningrad himself, but he was part of the project based there, and therefore, part of related communication.

In 1965 Olga Spessivtseva recoded the exercise methodology that she favored. It was re-created copy of the manuscript lost after her departure from Paris in 1939, and she asked Dolin for assistance with publishing.

Dolin, in turn, delegated to Joan Lawson to work with Natalia Dudinskaya of Kirov Ballet on finalizing Spessivtseva’s notes and illustrating them with photos taken by former dancer turned photographer Danil Savel’ev.

Biber back then was still teaching ballet, and most certainly was aware of this effort. After all, at the time, she was one of the very few dancers in Leningrad who knew Spessivtseva in school and throughout her career in Russia.

Yet, it is not likely that Dolin was acquainted with Biber in 1965, while working on his book “The Sleeping Ballerina”. Published in 1966, Dolin’s book has no additional details about Spessivtseva’s Russian period other than those he found in her preceding biography.

What more likely, is proxy contact between Biber and Dolin after 1966, possibly at the time when he was collecting information for ballet based on life of Spessivtseva, that Dolin planned to produce with Harkness Ballet company in New York.

Pas de Quatre

On 12th of July 1845 the premiere of ballet divertissement «Pas de Quatre» choreographed by Jules Perrot took place in London.

First night caused a sensation with the critics and the public alike. The reason for this was that it brought together, on one stage, the four greatest ballerinas of the time – in order of appearance, Lucile Grahn, Carlotta Grisi, F***y Cerrito, and Marie Taglioni.

The fifth great Romantic ballerina of the time, F***y Elssler, had been invited to take part but declined to do so; she was replaced by the young Lucile Grahn who accepted without hesitation.

«Pas de Quatre» captured the essence of the Romantic style as the ballerinas danced with demure lightness, delicacy, and poise. The steps demand that each area of classical ballet technique is executed. These areas include adagio movements, petite allegro, grand allegro, fast footwork, graceful changes of position, and the elegant and fluid arm movements that have become a signature element of «Pas de Quatre». Each ballerina has an individual variation, which are performed in succession between an opening and finale that are danced by all the ballerinas together. These variations were choreographed for the ballerina premiering in each role, and were designed to display the best features of each.

Nearly one hundred years later, in 1941, a new version of «Pas de Quatre» was staged by choreographer Anton Dolin. The dancers he used were, in order of appearance: Nathalie Krassovska as Lucile Grahn, Mia Slavenska as Carlotta Grisi, Alexandra Danilova as F***y Cerrito, and Alicia Markova as Marie Taglioni. Since then many ballet companies have performed the piece.

The sole and exclusive rights to perform «Pas de Quatre» were left to Festival Ballet (now English National Ballet) dancers Belinda Wright and Jelko Yuresha, husband and wife. Wright and Dolin had known each other since Wright was a young dancer. She had won a Pavlova Award and caught Dolin's attention. Wright was a principal with Dolin's Festival Ballet after years with the Royal Ballet, and her husband Yuresha was a soloist. When Dolin died, his estate, run by his nephew Phillip, bestowed the rights to Pas de Quatre to Wright and Yuresha. Dolin's Pas de Quatre may not be staged, performed, produced or recorded without their permission and their doing the staging.

PAS DE QUATRE
12 июля 1845 года состоялась премьера знаменитого балетного дивертисмента на музыку Цезаря Пуни «Па-де-катр» (фр. Pas de Quatre).
Балетмейстер Жюль Перро ставит легендарный балет по заказу английской королевы Виктории с четырьмя известнейшими балеринами того времени — Карлоттой Гризи, Марией Тальони, Люсиль Гран и Фанни Черрито. Этот балет вошел в историю как признанный хореографический шедевр, объединивший не просто 4-х балерин, но и четыре характера.
Директор театра её величества Бенджамин Лумли (Benjamin Lumley) поставил задачу хореографу так: «ни одна балерина не должна была затмить остальных — по крайней мере, по их собственному ощущению». Жюль Перро знал способности и темперамент балерин, поскольку работал с ними ранее. С другой стороны, у него был шлейф личных взаимоотношений и с его первой партнёршей Марией Тальони, и с его любимым творением Карлоттой Гризи.
Вариации не нумеровались и назывались именами балерин. Каждый образ раскрывал характер балерины, общий танец и чередование вариаций представляли логичное единство действия.
Дамы боролись за почётную последнюю вариации и начались скандалы. Бенджамин Лумли так посоветовал уже отчаявшемуся Жюлю Перро: «Выход прост. Предоставьте старшей из них занять вожделенное место». Когда Перро сообщил решение антрепренера, балерины вдруг утратили всякое желание продолжать борьбу. В то время Тальони был сорок один год, Черрито — двадцать восемь, Гризи — двадцать шесть, Гран — двадцать четыре. Таким образом, вариации были распределены по увеличению возраста. А начало и конец дивертисмента представляли собой застывшую картинную общую позу. Чтобы не задеть ничье самолюбие, имена на афише написали по кругу.
В 1845 году балет «Па де катр» произвёл сенсацию.
