the jofi. companioned by the premier
dancer Michael Mordktn. who aecms a
(ireek god coma to life, of eueh classic
tauty ts hla fare, the contoar of his
body, and every posture that ha takea.
Eight character dancers from the Rus
sian court, are hardly laa wonderful In
htha crace than tha two ataxa whom
they accompany. Tha Imperial Corps de
Pallet, trained under the critical scrutiny
of the Czar himself, helps to make an
ensemble that will eclipse anything
that has ever been preMtntcd In Port
land. With special orche.itra this onranliatton
numbers M persona. Scenery. from tha
Metropolitan Opera-House. Mew York,
specially prepared at treat tabor.fex
pense and art. will add to the enchant
ment of the ensemble. It is. indeed,
grand opera without the Tolces. made
IntenfHy dramatic by tho marvellouaty
exprc!ive bod'.ea of the dancerst who
thus Bive tragedy and comedy In panto
mime, with scenic backitround of rare
beauty. The enlus of Russia shows It
self unml.itakab ylln the music that has
been specially written for these ballets.
Tha llltlns; rhythm, delicate nuances.
rushiDK crescendos and tender modula
tions from major to minor, are Incom
parable, affording the rarest delight to
the cultured murtcal ear.
Nothing- Ilka thto remarkable organisa
tion has ever been seen outside of Rus
sia. Their dancing and posing was the
triumphant feature of the Metropolitan
Opera aeason during the four weeks they
were permitted to visit New York and
Boston last Winter. The twnctlon of the
Csar wa necessary before they could
visit America. In cash being given
the Caar as a guarantee that tha Ameri
cans would treat his proteges with the
consideration to wlrtch they are accus
tomed. Three performance will be- given In
Portland under the management of Lois
Steera-Wynn ootnan November 18 and 1
at the Baker Theater. The eompleta
Imperial Onera-House productions will
be presented with all acenio and spec
tacular effects, making an attraction
surpassing anything ever offered on tha
American concert, dramatic or operatlo
stage. Because of the character of the
entertainment pec1al attention haa.been
paid to the orchestra. A complete or
chestra Is carried which has been large
ly recruited from the membership of the
Metropolitan Opera-House. It la under
the direction of Theodor Stler, who has
tsken leave of absence from tha famous
nechateln MaJI Orchestra. London, of
which he Is -the founder, and of which
he haa.been the conductor continuously
since Its Inception.
A favorite duet in which Mordkln and
Pavlowa appear Is the "Bacchanalia
from Glaaounow's opera "The Seasons."
The two figures engage In a constantly
Increasing rapidity of motion. They are
faun-like and toy-like, half human, half
legendary- As the rapidity of the dance
increases' tha wlldnete) of lta delight be
comea more Intoxicating; It represents
the ancient rapture of the Bacchanalia
of the tJ reeks. I
The Arabian Nights In one act is an
entrancing ballet, full of the splendor
and . love-making of the Orient, scenes
from the Desert of Arabia woven Into a
romantic etory by the genius of Mordkln.
The rich Oriental setting- In Its sump
tuous splendor will be a revelation to
Portland opera goers. The muslo la
specially enjoyable. '
Another ballet In two acta la Ql
sella." a. tragic little masterpiece In
which "the beautiful Glsella appears as
a syiplilde before her lover. Albert,
when be comes to mourn at her grave.
As It Is fatal for a. mortal to dance
with a sylphide. she eludes him, and
he dies of a broken heart. These and
many other charming dlvertlssementa
will be given In Portland. -
