Morphine
ballet in one act
Music by Gustav Mahler

World premiere: Hermitage Theatre, 15 April 2016

Morphine is based on a short story of the same name by the Russian writer Mikhail Bulgakov. I come to the studio and slip into kind of madness. I try not to repeat myself or copy the movements created by other choreographers. If I find myself making the movements that I borrowed from the choreography that I have danced, I stop and tell my dancers: “Guys, forget it. It’s not mine.”
Ivan Vasiliev

The Prodigal Son
ballet in one act
Music: Camille Saint-Saëns

As young people mature, they begin to feel that they are ready to live independently. It’s a natural process. In the canonical biblical parable, the son leaves his father behind; in my ballet, he leaves his mother behind. The world and its glossy shine entice him. Much must happen before he realizes that la dolce vita requires constant gilding. This world in which our hero strived wrings him like a sponge, leaving him only a pistol with one cartridge. Yet the story of the prodigal son does not appear tragic to me. My hero does not entirely lose himself — he was simply looking for himself in the wrong place. This is partly a happy ending, because he retains his former potential, but now it is bolstered by experience which will certainly ennoble his honest urges in the future. Life doesn’t destroy him; instead, it makes him stronger. Strength in this case comes from the absence of illusions. Or from the truth, as they also say.

Ivan Vasiliev
