A series of five widely differing ballets from Prague, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Frankfurt. 5: Rondo
Frankfurt State Theatre's young director of ballet JOHN NEUMEIER created Rondo for a special evening of experimental ballets on contemporary themes. It was subsequently televised and in 1972 won the Italian Radio and Television Prize at the Prix Italia.
Rondo is in five movements. The choreography of each movement suggests: a sense of absolute harmony; endless struggle and purposelessness; a vacuum leading to a melancholy search for love and comfort; a more destructive continuation of the second movement; a refinding of the sense of harmony. The Rondo is complete. The music, a combination of five pieces ranging far apart in period and style, is by WILLIAM CORNYSHE (1465-1523), JAN BARK, GUSTAV MAHLER, JAN MORTHENSEN, SIMON AND GARFUNKEL.
Performed by the BALLET OF THE STATE THEATRE, FRANKFURT
The series comes from the Royal College of Art, London, where PROFESSOR STUART HOOD gives students the opportunity of talking to the people who made these European ballet programmes.
Talking about Rondo are producer MANFRED GRATER Who provided the scenario, TV director KLAUS LINDEMANN , and the choreographer John Neumeier.

in The Moose
When is a Moose not a Moose? When it's a young slavegirl, that's when. Hawkeye and Trapper are horrified when Radar explains that the Korean girl carrying Sgt Baker's gear around for him is his ' moose,' a corruption of the Japanese word for girl. As she is only 17 and very pretty our two knights in rusty armour decide to rescue her from the clutches of evil. At least that's how they see it!
