Recently the start of preparations for the international ballet project “The Great Gatsby” took place in Kiev. The ballet which libretto is based on the most famous novel by Francis Scott Fitzgerald, will include the elements of classical and modern dance.
To work on this big task the best professionals were invited – premier of Mariinskiy Theatre and former art director of the ballet troupe of the National Opera of Ukraine, Denis Matvienko, American choreographer Dwight Rhoden, composer Konstantin Meladze and many others.
The first part of the project is the announcing video, shooting of which started a few days ago. The video was directed by the famous clip maker Alan Badoev. Olga Navrotskaya was invited to do the style for the clip. According to Olga, just a few days ago she agreed to take part in the project, because the work on the style and selection of costumes was done almost around the clock in a non-stop mode.
The video will be logically divided into two parts: inspiring rhythms of 20s and lyrical vocal part performed by Polina Gagarina in English. The crew plans to finish the work on the clip by the end of the month, so the audience will enjoy the wonderful music by Konstantin Meladze and stunning choreography by Dwight Rodin in the beginning of 2014.
