Après Turandot à Toronto (Bob Wilson rebaptisant Ping, Pang, Pong en Jim, Bob et Bill)...

Le Lincoln Center renonce à diffuser la version intégrale du ballet dans la chorégraphie de Balanchine à cause d'une poupée chinoise dont le masque, le maquillage et les gestes pourraient heurter la sensibilité d'un point de vue ethnique et racial (je ne suis pas sûre de savoir traduire le mot 'insensitive") ... utelia-858

A note on this performance of Coppélia
The decision was made by New York City Ballet and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to stream the third act of Coppélia instead of the full-length production. The production from that time included, in the second act, the character of a Chinese doll wearing a mask and making movements that were ethnically and racially insensitive. In recent years, New York City Ballet has changed the costume, make-up design, and movements for this character to eliminate the Yellowface signifiers. The program that will stream on Monday better aligns with the values of NYCB and Lincoln Center. We commit to continued examination of this alignment moving forward.
