…During the show we felt military excitation, which was indeed knightly. The dancers run about like pure-blooded stallions… and they truly are. The characteristic dance on toes adds more airiness to their performance.
The male choir is very powerful (male, indeed): strong sounding in all timbres, exceeding our ‘Companion Dela Chanson’ and ‘Frere Jaques’ collectives, look faded.
Oh! What a glorious choir!
Ladies are slender, pretty like Chinese dolls, mysterious like hieroglyphs, they are like floating dreams! (Anyway, they don’t look like swift Russians.)
It is wonderful like an oriental fairy tale’.
