BORIS EIFMAN BALLET THEATRE OF SAINT-PETERSBURG BORIS EIFMAN BALLET THEATRE OF SAINT-PETERSBURG After their brilliant performance at Baalbek in 2010, the Boris Eifman Ballet Theatre of Saint-Petersburg will be back this year to present the magnificent ballet Don Quichotte or fantasies of a mad man.
"Don Quixote, or Fantasies of a Madman" is one of Boris Eifman's most enjoyable works, brisk storytelling and lively dance that gingerly sends up classical ballet while providing a reasonably fine modern equivalent. Eifman wakes up the old art like few others, loyal to the tradition while boldly updating its look. In "Quixote," he finds the perfect metaphor, encasing his hero in a framing plot as inmate of an asylum, a way to be faithful to Miguel de Cervantes themes. Not only is this Quixote — danced with brittle zeal and bursting energy, but the approach allows Eifman to craft an earnest plea for the imagination, a lustrous salute to the vision and suffering of all artists."

FROM THE DAYS OF SALADIN FROM THE DAYS OF SALADIN

A Lebanese musical play entirely live. It is interpreted by Assi el Hallani, Antoine Kerbaje, Carmen Lebbos, Carine Ramia, Nabil Abou Mrad, Ghassan Attieh, Joseph Assaf, Boutros Farah, Khaled el Sayed, Hala el Murr, Sabeh Baaklini, Alain Aye, the music is played by an orchestra of 45 musicians conducted by Maestro Harout Fazlian and the choir of the Antonine Fathers University under the direction of father Toufik Maatouk will complete this ensemble with the participation of an elite of singers, actors and dancers.

All the sets are designed by Rami Sabbagh. The dances are choreographed by Francois Rahme. The costumes design and execution are signed by Faten Mechref from the Caracalla Research Center.

This musical play, which takes place during the conflicts between Saladin and Richard the Lion Heart, highlights the impact of the conflicts that have always existed between East and West and its effect on Lebanon as well as on the region.

The intrigue is an integral part of the piece that has a leading character who is a contemporary writer who decided to continue to write his piece as a musical play titled "From the days of Saladin". He then penetrates his own creation to convince his own characters to negotiate and conclude a final peace between East and West, at the Gates of the City of Peace instead of the historic yet limited truce that resulted between Saladin and Richard the Lion Heart in 1192.

This musical play includes elaborate scenes and songs with a folkloric oriental music without ever forgetting the framework of events; modern audio-visual and lighting effects done by a highly qualified technician team complete this masterpiece. The result that evolves in a piece produced today is fast-paced and quite audacious.

Don Quixote [Byblos Festival 2011] Don Quixote [Byblos Festival 2011]

A musical play by Marwan, Ghadi and Oussama Rahbani. Based on Cervantes' literary masterpiece, Don Quixote is an epic musical play created by Marwan, Ghadi and Oussama Rahbani for the opening of Byblos 2011. Don Quixote's idealism clashes with Lebanese realities in this huge theatrical sensation starring Rafic Ali Ahmad, Hiba Tawaji and Paul Sleiman.

Dear friends, With the beginning of every summer, we gather at Byblos, this ancient city that has given its name to the Holy Bible, educated mankind, proclaimed civilization and spread alphabet and knowledge in the whole world.

The new play we will be presenting this season at the opening of Byblos International festival is inspired by the most renowned novel in the world: "Don Quixote" by Cervantes: a Literary wonder that achieved international fame just like the "Iliad" by Homer, the "Divine Comedy" by Dante, "Faust" by Goethe, and "Romeo and Juliet" By Shakespeare. And if we wanted to sum up this novel with one word, it would be "Sarcasm", as it is the most sarcastic and satirical novel in western literature. Yet, stories that make people laugh make them weep too.

Why " Don Quixote" ? … And why today? Because it is the time to dream, and what is a dream but a representation of truth and reality. "Don Quixote" or "Don Assaad Quixote" as he is named in the play, tried to sow dreams of change in the minds and spirits of his people; but he came up against a sad and ugly truth: some societies do not desire to change, and latch onto their diseases, hungering for corruption and following their leaders' whims.

"Don Quixote" is a play that verges on dreams and fantasy, and that is presented with a revolutionary vision. We set off from our environment, our country, and our reality to travel through a story that sheds light on corruption and injustice through an errant knight in love with his imaginary Dulcinea, whom he reverts back to purity after society had corrupted her.

And here is the shameful equation: who is the victim and who is the oppressor, the people or the rulers? At times, they are both partners in crime. We have taken the essence of the story and presented it in a play, which we introduced to you the general guidelines, leaving the details and dramatic an comic incidents for the performance. With a new vision in direction, great production, dramatic script and lyrics, and dazzling composition and performance, this play will come to life with a high tech mobile décor, futuristic costumes, captivating choreography, and elite artists.

The concept and music are signed by Oussama Rahbani, the book and lyrics by Ghadi Rahbani, the direction by Marwan Rahbani, and the production by Byblos International Festival and Oussama Rahbani. We hope "Don Quixote" will be a new and innovative version of the novel that has taught generation after generation, The first generation met "Don Quixote" with laughter. The second met it with a smile. The third met it with tears. We hope that our people meet it with a pinch of conscience, to change the inhuman and unjust situations prevailing in our modern society.
