Ballet Iara
description
In 1941, the Original Ballet Russe, directed by Colonel Wassili de Basil, toured Latin American countries. Preserving the tradition of Russian ballet, W. de Basil sought to enrich and renew his repertoire, incorporating bold and modernist conceptions from important artists from the places he visited. "Iara", the first Brazilian ballet to definitively enter the international circuit, was born from a conversation in a frieze at the Theatro Municipal de São Paulo, in 1942, between the Russian director and the poet Guilherme de Almeida. The idea was to compose a plot with a Brazilian theme, but which conveyed a human message, of a universal nature. The argument was commissioned from the poet himself; the music, to maestro Francisco Mignone; the sets, to Candido Portinari.
