IN SECOND PROGRAM
Fantasy, Humor and Tragedy
In Dancing, Sets and Music
Again, after a brief Teutonic upheaval,
the Russian ballet' Again tho over
whelming of the senses with color, light
and movement, In the fantastic, tho gro
tcsauo and tho tragic moods of tho daneo
and pantomime. For the "Scheherazade"
of tho opening program thero was "Clco
patro," for 'TOIscnu do Feu" thero was
"Sololl de Nult," nnd to add to "Carna
val," which was repeated, there was "Ln
Spectro do la Roso." It was a program
not more varied, not moro Immediately
pleasing nnd not nit the scparato numbors
of It wero ns effective as their counter
parts of tho first night.
This tlmo there was, howovcr, some
thing added In the "Soldi do Nult" (The
Midnight Sun), which was Intensely racial,
could havo sprung from nowhere outside
of Russia and It turned out to bo tho
high-light of the ovonlng's program. Cer
tainly tho edge was takon oft "Clcopatro"
by tho moro daring, tho moro benutlful
and tho moro dramatically effectlvo story
of tho Arabian nights, In which also love
and death aro mingled. Tho Btory of tho
youth who Is dazled by tho fatnl enchant
ment of the Queen of tho Sapphlro Nile,
who deserts his lowly love for tho Queen's
passing faor and, gratified, drinks tho
cup of death. Is eminently fitted for tho
miming of tho Ballet Russo; but tho
Egyptian setting 13 hnrd nnd tho Ecnsu
ousness, tho dreadful voluptuousness of
Kobcldo and her paramour could not bo
paralleled. So that It was only tragedy,
without much of pnsslon Or of beauty,
which lllled tho gloomy hnlls with their
monstrous nnd misshapen pillars and hugo
gods. Even the dancing hero was not
perfect; the music, by many hands, was
Interesting, and tho cottumlng superb.
But it did not gol
Tho lovely dream of tho "Spectro of the
Rose," sot to Weber's familiar "Invitation
to tho Dance," wns an Interludo whloh
combined with tho final plcoe, tho "Car
naval," set to Sohumann's muslo. JL Alex
andre Qavrlloff was tho Incarnation of
tho roso summoned In tho young girl's
dream, and wns possessed of a fine, fan
tastlo graoe. Yet It was Mile. Lydla Lopo
kovo, tho adorable and adored, who wns
tho Bptrit of tho dream. Her fragile and
tondcr beauty, her Ineffable grnoo and
lovollnoss of spirit, wore enough oven ln
tho few fleeting moments of tho danco.
Hers Is tho head upon which all tho be
ginnings of earth havo begun to fall and
tho oyellds will never grow weary. Wo do
not wonder that Euripides exclaimed, "And
shall not Lydla bo loved forever!"
Thoro Is In tho program tomorrow eve
ning another oxnmplo of tho Russian folk
danco In "Pctrouchka." which opens with
a street fair In Petrograd. It Is a tragic
episode, but "Solell do Nult" Is all fun
nnd rustle humors and tho mad celebra
tion of Halloween. Beforo n sky of rich
est, darkest bluo In tho wonderful set of
Larlonoff thero stands a leering totem
pole nnd around and nbout this wild sym
bol tho games nnd dances of Russia tnko
place. Overhead hang crazy pumpkin
heads, wth strango triangular eyes, nil
red and kindly nnd familiar. Tho sinister
llttlo men of "Tho Firebird" nro hero
transformed Into tho good spirits, tho Imps
aro elves nnd the ugly llgures of a bad
drenm aro hero tho puffy, honest-faced
men nnd women of a hamlet, met for their
ono night off.
Thoy danco nnd play, In their absurd
headdresses and largo skirts and queer
blouses, and tho village Btupld, with
hands tied out of mischief In long bag
bleeCH, comes to danco and play with
them. Then tho midnight sun himself,
Hushing red garments nnd hugo cymbals
on his hands, dances tho rout of his pagan
religion, until In merriment and activity
thoy aro too tired to do more. It Is alto
gether Russian, simple, Joyous nnd free.
Tho figures leap and gather In groups,
scatter nnd join In romping rings, all with
nn unaffected enjoyment, freshness and
vigor which no sophisticated ago can re
store. Except for this the evening served only
as a reminder of what had gone before.
It serves also as Interlude, for tomorrow
"Scheherazade'' Is dnnced again, with
"Petrouchkn" and "Lea Sylphlde," a far
moro characteristic set of pieces. Friday
evening has tho most notablo bill of all,
and tho two Saturday performances are
largely mado up of repetitions. There
was sufuclent beauty In last night's work
for an ordinary ballet; for tho Russians
It was not enough. They live and prosper
on moro violent things, on passions moro
hot. Last night not oven Bnkst glowed.
