ROSE FESTIVAL CONCERT THE PORTLAND JUNIOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA AND BALLET MUNICIPAL AUDITORIUM, JUNE 4 AND 8, 1935 JACQUES GERSHKOVITCH, Director WILLIAM F. CHRISTENSEN, Ballet Master Karl Aschenbrenner, Assistant to Director PROGRAM FANFARE—"Triumphal March"—Op. 40 Glazounow OVERTURE—"Oberon" Weber "L'ARLESIENNE SUITE," No. II Bizet Prelude Minuetto Adagietto Le Carillon ITALIAN CAPRICE Tschaikowsky Intermission of Fifteen Minutes BALLET—"Coppelia" Delibes A Ballet in One Act Through collaboration of Mr. William Christensen and Mr. Jacques Gershkovitch the ballet, "Coppelia," is condensed to one scene. Also, a more modern choreography has been adopted. The scene is laid in a public square in a village on the boundary of Gallcia. It is a day of festivity, celebrating the gift of a new town clock from the lord of the village. The scene opens with the villagers dancing to the strains of the mazurka. All enter into the spirit of the dance, till they leave to greet the arriving burgomaster. Swanilda, a village maid, leaves her bouse to look at what appears to be a beautiful girl sitting in the window of the workshop of old Coppelius, the toy-maker. To attract the girl's attention, Swanilda dances. When she perceives Franz, her betrothed, approaching she hides. Going toward the house of Swanilda, Franz hesitates when he sees the beautiful girl in Coppelius' window. The girl, who in reality is a mechanical doll, turns her head and seems to respond to the greeting of Franz. Franz throws her a kiss. Having seen all, Swanilda is unable to conceal her emotions. She refuses to listen to explanations and goes home. Swanilda's friends who have witnessed the quarrel, dance in front of her house to cheer her and at length persuades her to join them. Old Coppelius invites the crowd to see his mechanical dolls. First he shows his quaint soldiers. Next he presents Pierrot and Pierrette, who dance to the tune of Liadov's "Musical Snuff Box." This charming little composition has been added as a special feature. Finally Coppelius brings out his most beautiful doll, Coppelia, who dances the famous Coppelia waltz. All are astonished at her life-like grace and precision, especially Swanilda, who is happy to discover that Franz has made love only to a doll. Happy to be reconciled again, Franz and Swanilda dance together. The music is the Romance from Delibes' ballet suite "La Source," and is built around a solo cello part which expresses their new avowal of love. The crowd enters on the heels of the burgomaster, who greets everyone heartily and offers them a most unusual divertissement, the famous Dance of the Hours, in celebration of the gift of the new town clock presented to them by the Lord of the village. Swanilda, Franz and their companions danee another mazurka for the festival, and the villagers join in the Czardas and the old dances of their country. They are joined by a band of gypsies playing tambourines, bringing the ballet to an exciting close. COPPELIA JANET REED SWANILDA NATALIE LAUTERSTEIN FRANZ WILLIAM F.
