Day 50_Emeralds

[Gentes del mundo, el coronavirus nos ha encerrado. Pero no sólo no podrá con nosotros, sino que vamos a aprovechar el encierro al máximo. Aquí va mi idea del día.]

A partir de mañana podremos salir a pasear. Algo tan simple como salir a caminar nos parece ahora un regalo.
El llamado “walking pas de deux” o “paso a dos caminado” de Esmeraldas es uno de los dúos más hermosos creados por Balanchine. Es parte de su tríptico Joyas, emplea música de Fauré y tiene unos bellísimos diseños de Karinska. Es musical, elegante, poético y dificilísimo precisamente por lo fácil que debe parecer.
Como caminar.

[People of the world, the Coronavirus has locked us up. But not only will it not be able to take us, but we will make the most of the lockdown. Here’s my idea for the day.]

Tomorrow we can go out for a walk. Something as simple as going for a walk now seems to be a gift to us.
The so-called “walking pas de deux” from Emeralds is one of the most beautiful duets created by Balanchine. It is part of his triptych Jewels, uses music composed by Fauré and beautiful costumes designed by Karinska. It is musical, elegant, poetic and very difficult just because it has to look very easy.
Like walking itself.
