Music for the Derek Deane Production for English National Ballet
In 1995, English National Ballet commissioned a score for a full length ballet, based on Lewis Carroll’s immortal masterpiece, Alice in Wonderland. The one stipulation and challenge was for a score to be based on the music of Tchaikovsky. Carl Davis accepted the challenge and a smash hit was born!
The centre of the score is derived from Tchaikovsky’s Album for the Young. Davis also drew on Tchaikovsky’s Theatre Music, Tone Poems and Operas, as well as the beautiful waltz from the Fifth Symphony for The Garden of Living Flowers. This highly successful production was revived many times, including performances at the Company’s London Coliseum seasons. Pittsburgh Ballet in the U.S. has already staged the ballet in April, 2008 and plan to continue performing it. ENB was invited to take the ballet to Hong Kong in March, 2009 and plans a further U.K. tour in 2010.
Alice in Wonderland marks the launch of the Carl Davis Collection. There are four projects planned for release in 2009: Alice in Wonderland; the prize-winning soundtrack to Hannah Davis and David Conolly’s feature film The Understudy; music for the BBC TV series Cranford and the ballet Cyrano commissioned from Carl Davis by The Birmingham Royal Ballet, choreographed by David Bintley and premiered in 2007. This ballet will go on a national tour including Sadler’s Wells in Autumn 2009.
The Carl Davis Collection has far-reaching plans to produce all major works on both CD and DVD of the compositions of Carl Davis. The Repertoire for the following two years is already in preparation.

DON QUIXOTE A ballet by Ludwig Minkus SYNOPSIS Don Quixote, who is a great lover of tales of chivalry, decides to set off on his travels in order to achieve great feats, which will bring glory to his name. As his sword-bearer, he chooses the loyal Sancho Panza. A street festival in Barcelona, in front of the tavern kept by Lorenzo. Kitri, daughter of the innkeeper, is flirting with Basil, the barber, who is in love with her. Finding them together Lorenzo, Kitri's father, chases Basil away: the barber isn't a good match for his daughter. Lorenzo intends Kitri to marry Gamache, a rich nobleman. Everybody greet the torero, Espada, and a street dancer. Don Quixote appears in the square, accompanied by Sancho Panza. Lorenzo invites Don Quixote into the inn. Sancho Panza is left in the square. But when young people in street deride Sancho, Don Quixote immediately hurries to his sword bearer's rescue. Don Quixote is astonished by the beauty of Lorenzo's daughter, Kitri. In his mind, she becomes Dulcinea, "the lady of his heart". But Kitri disappears. She has run off with Basil. Lorenzo, Gamache and Don Quixote set out to look for her. Kitri and Basil are hiding in a gypsy's camp. Near to the gypsies, a group of vagrant actors prepare for their show. Soon, Don Quixote appears. He watches the puppet show, and, led away by the visions of chivalry tales, rushes to the rescue of the theater shows’ heroes. The theater, the decorations and the puppets are destroyed. After that, he catches the sight of the windmills that are seen in the neighborhood and mistakes them for evil magicians. He rushes to fight them. Don Quixote, wounded after falling from a windmill, is in the forest, accompanied by Sancho Panza. He falls asleep. In his dreams, Don Quixote sees Dulcinea surrounded by dryads and fairies. In a tavern, the young people are dancing, Kitri and Basil among them. Suddenly they are found by Lorenzo and Gamache. Lorenzo wishes to make an immediate announcement of the betrothal of Kitri and Gamache. But Basil, by agreement with Kitri, pretends to take his life. Kitri begs Don Quixote to persuade her father to bless her love with her dying sweetheart. As soon as Lorenzo does that and agrees to their marriage, Basil jumps to his feet. There is no point in his pretending to be dead any longer. At Kitri and Basil's wedding, Don Quixote occupies a place of honor. He wishes the young couple happiness and sets off to his travels again. Alexander Glazunov (1865 - 1936) is one of the most eminent Russian composers, a brilliant symphonist and melodist, the author of numerous symphonic and instrumental works. He was the favorite pupil of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov; on the other hand, in his symphonic compositions, he became a successor of Tchaikovsky. For many years, Glazunov was the director of the St. Petersburg Conservatoire (later turned into Petrograd and then to Leningrad Conservatoire). He had a phenomenal musical memory; using his unique abilities, he (together with Rimsky-Korsakov) undertook the great task of finishing Alexander Borodin's opera Prince Igor, and wrote down the first movement of his Third Symphony. Two Concert Waltzes were composed in 1893-94. This was the time of a fresh upsurge of the composers' activity after a crisis in 1890-91. At the same time, several important works were written, including the 3d and the 4th symphonies. In the waltzes, Glazunov develops the tradition of this genre that descends from Mikhail Glinka's Waltz-Fantasy.

This recording has the great advantage of being of the 1895 performing version, i.e. the ballet as it is most usually performed today - all other recordings are of Tchaikovsky's original score, which places, for example, the black act pas de deux in the first act, instead of the third. Victor Fedotov was for many years chief ballet conductor at the Maryinsky (Kirov) Theatre, and he and the theatre orchestra give an outstanding performance.
LIBRETTO
In a park by a castle Prince Siegfried celebrates his birthday with his friends. A messenger announces the arrival of his mother, the Dowager Princess. She plans to arrange his marriage and reminds that he should find his fiancee tomorrow, during a ball which will be held in his honor.
Siegfried sees a flock of swans in the sky. He leaves the park and goes to the lake.
A lake in the forest. The swans glide over the surface of the lake; then they go out of the water and turn into beautiful girls. Their leader, Odette, tells Siegfried about the curse cast on her by the magician, Rotbart: they are swans by day and girls by night. Only true love and marriage can save her; but if her lover betrays her, she would die.
Rotbart appears in a guise of an owl. Odette and Siegfried declare their love for each other; the new day dawns. The girls turn into swans again.
At the castle, a magnificent ball is being prepared. Beautiful girls invited to the ball one by one pass before the Prince, but he remains indifferent - he is in love with Odette. Unexpectedly, Rotbart arrives, disguised as a noble knight, with his daughter Odile. Siegried is embarrassed: she looks just like Odette. She tempts him, and, misled by her appearance, him asks her to marry him. Rotbart is jubilant: Siegfried betrayed his love to Odette! Siegfried sees a white swan in the castle window; horrified by the mistake he had made, he rushes desperately to the lake.
On the lake, the swans wait for their queen; Odette comes in a state of despair, telling them about Siegfried and his betrayal. The Prince himself appears, begging her to forgive him. Rotbart comes into the scene; a terrible storm begins. A fight between Rotbart and Siegfried ends with the Prince's victory. The wicked spell is broken; Odette and her companions are free.

The synopsis of the ballet Giselle

Act I - A rustic village

Giselle, a weak-hearted young girl who is adored by her native villagers, lives with her watchful mother, Berthe. Hilarion, the village gamekeeper, is desperately in love with Giselle. Prince Albrecht, a nobleman who is already engaged to a noblewoman named Bathilde, is bored and lonely with his everyday existence. Captivated by Giselle's frail beauty and innocence, Albrecht disguises himself as a peasant named Loys. After purchasing the cottage adjacent to Berthe's, he proceeds to shower Giselle with his affections.

Hilarion, filled with suspicion and jealousy, becomes enraged when Giselle falls madly in love with Albrecht and believes that they are engaged.

Berthe has a vision that her daughter will one day become a Wili, a jilted maiden who dies before her wedding night. The Wilis emerge between midnight and dawn to vengefully trap any man who enters their domain by forcing him to dance to his death.

Hilarion exposes Albrecht's disguise and proclaims that he is already betrothed to Bathilde. Overwhelmingly distraught and horrified, Giselle dies of a broken heart.

Act II - A forest clearing

Hilarion is discovered just before midnight keeping vigil by Giselle's tomb. As midnight approaches, the Wilis appear with their leader, Queen Myrta. This is the night Giselle is to be initiated as a Wili.

Albrecht, laden with feelings of guilt and remorse, visits Giselle's grave. He sees a vision of Giselle and follows it into the forest. At this point, Myrta discovers Hilarion in the forest and orders the Wilis to dance around him until he dies from exhaustion. She then discovers Albrecht and demands that he share the same fate as Hilarion but is unable to permeate the invisible bond of love that Giselle has for him.

At dawn, when the Wilis lose their power and must retreat to their dwelling place, Albrecht is saved and Giselle forgives him. Giselle returns with the Wilis and recognizes that now she will be one of them for the rest of time.
