  • The Sleeping Beauty Lina Petipa Analysis

    Everyone remembers the classic fairy tale The Sleeping Beauty, but few have experienced the fascinating twist that is presented by the Moscow Festival Ballet. Directed by Sergei Radchenko, the audience is left on the edge of their seat at every stage of the three act performance; from the curse set on The Sleeping Beauty to the moment she falls in love and gets married. The captivating story of the Sleeping Beauty (Princess Aurora) involves multiple elements that all add to the success of the performance in their own unique way, which create a wonderful work of art. This is precisely why Marius Petipa’s choroeogrphy is considered to be at the top of the spectrum when it comes to classical ballet. More specifically, these elements include Tchaikovsky’s musical talent which sets the tone for the performance, the vibrant costume design which draws the audience’s full attention, and finally the character development of Princess Aurora which sends her on an imaginative journey to eventually fall in love. Although Tchaikovsky did not live long enough to see his work blossom into the success we see today, his music is highly regarded and sets the tone for the whole performance. As expected, the music is set perfectly for what is being portrayed on stage at that given moment. For example, when the evil fairy Carabosse pronounces her curse on Princess Aurora, the music surrounding this scene can be described as somber and mysterious, giving the audience an ominous sense. It is as if…

  • Three Second Memory Essay

    A Three Second Memory? There is a common belief that fish only have a three second memory and that they cannot be trained to compete tricks, and this may be caused by the short lifespan of some species of fish, making testing for long term memory difficult (Reebs, 2008, p.1). Moreover, many assume that goldfish do not have a memory since goldfish always seem like they are hungry, since they are always seen foraging for food. However, as a long time goldfish owner, I have witnessed my goldfish…

  • Reflection On Behavior Modification

    After receiving this assignment, the behavior that I knew I needed to change was my sleeping habits. Usually at night, I will stay up until 4 in the morning because I am either doing homework or messing around with my friends. Since I have to wake up at 8 in the morning for my classes, I only receive about 4 hours of sleep a night. This causes me to take a lot of naps during the day to make up for the missed hours. My roommate always complains that I need to stop sleeping during the day because…

  • Outline And Evaluate One Learning Approach

    Outline and evaluate one learning approach One learning approach in psychology is the behaviourist approach. The main assumptions of behaviourism are that behaviour is a response to a stimulus and that what we do is determined by environment. Behaviourists also assume that learning processes are common to all species – meaning that there is little difference between humans and animals as well as believing that all complex behaviour is the result of learning through interaction and that people…
