Theatre Review: “Anna Karenina”

“Anna Karenina” received a standing ovation at its world premiere!

The audience fell in love with Yuri Possokhov’s dance interpretation of the beloved classic, where dancers Victoria Jaiani and Alberto Velazquez portrayed star-crossed lovers Anna and Vronsky. Their on-stage chemistry was electric! From the first bewitching dance to their eventual cohabitation,  it was hard to believe these two were not a couple in real life. However, the gut-wrenching heartbreak of Anna’s infidelity and the eternal separation from her family resonated through the Auditorium Theatre.

Anais Bueno and Yoshihisa Arai’s characters, Kitty and Levin, served as a drastic contrast to the main couple. Levin’s devotion to Kitty is evident from the very beginning, and their dance was a delight to witness. Even though Kitty appeared to be initially swayed by Vronsky, she eventually welcomed Levin with open arms and the pair enjoyed the simple, country life together. I loved their portrayal of a monogamous relationship built on honesty. The pair’s joyful choreography erased the immense sadness from previous scenes. They set couple goals!

The pros and cons of the performance was as simple as Kitty and Levin’s country life. I loved the period clothing and group dance scenes. The parties were so inviting it almost felt like we could join in. As always, everyone’s dancing  was superb, while Yuri Possokhov’s choreography is engaging. Also, vocalist Lindsay Metzger’s operatic singing was magical. The only thing I would have changed was the love scene. Even though it is done tastefully, I wold have preferred them hint at their affair throughout the performance, and cut the lengthy love scene out.

If you love romantic tearjerkers, “Anna Karenina” was tailor-made for you. It runs thru February 24th at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

Review: 2019 Chicago Auto Show

Lookout for the unique vehicles at the “2019 Chicago Auto Show“!

At first glance, the annual event seems mundane with the same type of autos we see every year from brands like Chevrolet, Ford, Subaru, Nissan, Hyundai, Honda, etc. I feel like we are still waiting on those flying saucers from “The Jetsons” to appear, and anything else is a letdown. Thankfully, automakers have found a way to hold everyone’s attention with sprinkles of flashy yet stylish vehicles on display. Bright colors and signature designs are impossible to ignore as you stroll through each brand’s exhibit.

These caught my eye after the beloved 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. My childhood adoration of the original 1990s version drew me to this particular model first. It closely resembles Subaru SUVs more than its predecessors. The compact design appears easily accessible for entry and exit (unlike many SUVs today).

Chevrolet in general is making a big impression on auto show attendees with its elaborate award case and eye-catching creations like the lego truck.

Like previous years, you can go for a drive in the indoor tracks. The added bonus is the golden opportunity to test drive new vehicles outside as well. After you visit your favorite brands this year, keep your eye out for the fabulous selection of distinctive and brightly-colored autos.

Also, make sure you check out the vehicles making their grand debut this year!

Ashley Wheater: “Next season we will showcase the range, diversity and quality of work being created for ballet companies in the 21st century. We want to introduce Chicago audiences to fresh faces, all of whom are shaping the dance landscape today: Cathy Marston’s visionary Jane Eyre, Justin Peck’s innovative ‘sneaker ballet’ The Times Are Racing, two dances inspired by the pioneering music of Igor Stravinsky and thrilling work by Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili. Even the classic story Don Quixote finds new relevance with choreography by Yuri Possokhov, who created our groundbreaking Anna Karenina for this year’s winter program.”

Greg Cameron: “It is through Ashley Wheater’s unrivaled leadership that The Joffrey Ballet continues to shine as a world-class institution and our 2019-2020 season proves to be one of our most monumental to date.
