Positano Premia la Danza «LÉONIDE MASSINE»

Positano Premia la Danza «LÉONIDE MASSINE» under the artistic direction of Daniele Cipriani since 2011, organized by Positano Municipality, is the longest event in the history of international dance awards.

This event has a long tradition; numerous celebrities have received the award in the past, notably: Margot Fonteyn, Rudolf Nureyev, Gianni Versace, Maurice Béjart, Vladimir Vasiliev, Ekaterina Maximova, Natalia Makarova, Carla Fracci, Luciana Savignano, Elisabetta Terabust, Alessandra Ferri, Eleonora Abbagnato, Roberto Bolle, Alicia Alonso, Uliana Lopatkina, Ivan Vassiliev, Natalia Osipova, Yuri Grigorovich.

During the last century, many great dance celebrities, such as Sergei Diaghilev and Vaslav Nijinsky, were drawn to Positano. Léonide Massine and Rudolf Nureyev loved this part of the world so much that they bought the Li Galli Islands, located in front of Positano (town in the south of Italy).

The spellbinding attraction that Positano and its seascape have always exercised over artists of the dance is the reason that, on 2 August 1969, the Premio Positano was established. Ten years later, on the death of Léonide Massine, the Award was named for him. It is now into its 43rd edition and has been directed by Daniele Cipriani since 2011, with its former director of 40 years (there were three years in which the event was not held), Alberto Testa, now Honorary President.

San Francisco Ballet has celebrated Thirty Years Jubilee of its Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson

San Francisco Ballet has celebrated Thirty Years Jubilee of its Artistic Director Helgi Tomasson.

Under his leadership the company became one of the best and most successful troupe in the US, very well known abroad. When the company was in Paris last fall, the tickets were sold way before the arrival of dancers.

Repertoire of the company includes all the best choreographies created in Europe, UK or US at this period and also the grand classics.

A new Creation by Hans Van Manen

Benois de la Danse laureate, Dutch choreographer, Hans van Manen (82) has created a new work for Ballet Alltag to the music by M. Blasco de Nebra and J. S. Bach, F. Schubert and G. Mahler of Deutsche Oper am Rhein, run by a Swiss choreographer and Benois de la Danse laureate, Martin Schloepfer. This new work has been an exception for Van Manen, as beginning from 1994 he is doing new choreographies only inside Holland — for Het National Ballet and the Netherlands Dance Theatre. He is a resident choreographer at the first company and he has found the second company, together with Rudi van Dantzig (Benois de la Danse laureate).
