Tetiana Medvid

Abstract


Purpose of Research is to discover ballet performances, the source of interpretation for which were the works of Ukrainian literature. Methodology. Systematization of the source base and retrospective analysis of ballet performances from the establishment of the Ukrainian ballet theater in the '20s of the twentieth century. to date has allowed conducting comprehensive scientific and objective research. Scientific novelty. The works of Ukrainian literature, which became the source of choreographic interpretations in the national ballet theater, were systematized. Conclusions. The arsenal of the ballet theater of Ukraine involved works of Ukrainian writers in the middle of the XIX-early XX centuries. Among them are T. Shevchenko (ballets "Lilia", "Oksana", "Witch"), L. Ukrainka (ballets "Forest song", "Stone owner", "Educational lights"), I. Franko (ballets "Suchene wing "," Masonry "), M. Kotsyubinsky (ballet "Shadows of forgotten ancestors "), M. Staritsky (ballets "Magic Dream", "For Two Hares"). Only one product of Ukrainian literature in the middle of the twentieth century was discovered, interpreted by ballet theater - Tavria by O. Honchar (the same name ballet). For most of the interpretations of literary works, the method involves the consolidation of the main characters, the strengthening of plots, plans corresponding to the figurative nature of the ballet theater, the removal of secondary characters or enhancement of images close to the ballet, the disclosure of the leading idea of the work. Ballet performances on literary works are not plastic analogs of the text, but self-sufficient works. The conducted research does not exhaust all aspects of the interaction of works of Ukrainian literature and the national ballet theater, presented in order to draw attention to the problem, to draw a perspective direction of further art studies.
