Classicism-Romanticism

Leonid Yacobson's version of classicism is based on an unmatched fusion between the carefully picked music score and the unique choreographic patterns that flow together into a never-ending stream of movement and portray an incredible line-up of characters.

The Classicism-Romanticism cycle was a true breakthrough, a long way ahead of its time; but interestingly enough, its initial purpose was completely the opposite: Leonid Yacobson's spiteful critics chastised him for a supposed lack of knowledge of the classics, while he used the power of his genius to prove them wrong.

While handling each of the classical ballet forms — variations, duets, Pas de deux, Pas de trois, Pas de quatre — the choreographer breathed new life both into the music and the dance, turning each miniature into a drama in its own right, and into a symbol of romantic harmony.
