Upcoming Events

Barbarians at the Gate

Stravinsky, Diaghilev & the Ballets Russes

On Thursday, April 5th, 2012 at 6:00 p.m., a multimedia presentation entitled Barbarians at the Gate – Stravinsky, Diaghilev & the Ballets Russes, narrated by Tom Maguire, will be offered free to the general public at the Performance Space at La Tienda at 7 Caliente Road in Eldorado. This event is presented by Destiny Allison Fine Art as part of the salon series: Art in the 21st Century.

This presentation will offer a detailed look at the time between the first season of Serge Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in 1909 and Diaghilev’s death in Venice two decades later.  Mr. Maguire will examine the artistic forces and personalities that forged a reinvigoration of the art of ballet.  The presentation will also explore the effect that the visual artists, composers, librettists, choreographers, dancers and designers associated with the Ballets Russes had, not only on that organization, but also on their own art forms and the cultural life of Europe in general.  The presentation will concentrate on the work of composers Stravinsky, Ravel, Milhaud, Satie, Debussy and Prokofiev; visual artists Benois, Picasso, Rouault, Gris, Picabia, Bakst and Braque and choreographers Fokine, Massine, Nijinsky, Nijinska and Balanchine.  These artists and their influence on the artistic life of Europe, in general, and Paris, in particular, will be chronicled; along with the aristocrats, members of high society and the business class, donors and sponsors who made their work possible.

Mr. Maguire augments the research he has done on the Ballets Russes with material gleaned from the most recent publications on the subject.  Visual and musical materials are selected from several sources including Mr. Maguire’s extensive collection. Barbarians at the Gate dramatically explores the artistic explosion that Serge Diaghilev unleashed on Western Europe as he brought; first visual arts, then opera and finally ballet from mother Russia to the salons and theatres of Paris.  In stunning visuals accompanied by music clips, Barbarians at the Gate traces not only the history of the company, but also its effect on all of the arts in the early 20th century.

Friday, October 21 from 7 – 10 pm
Ac Tah, author of ” Night of the Last Katun 2012 Maya” is a direct descendant Maya from the Yucatan Pennisula in Mexico. He works at the direction of his ancestors the ancient Maya to prepare humanity for the changes that have already begun as Earth and its inhabitants enters a new geological and Spiritual age in 2012.
Intense solar flares, global warming and changes in the Earths electromagnetic field are only a few of the sypmtoms of this time that the ancient Maya could see and predict thousands of years ago.
They were masters of science and technology especially in what we know today as Unified Field Theory and DNA. The ancient Maya were able to map our galaxy and calculate time with a precision unmatched even by modern science.
Among their many prophecy’s is one that states that prior to 2012 a Maya descendant would appear who would embody the heart and mind of the Mayan culture. Someone who could interpret the coded information left by them in the pyramids ,glyphs and steles and pass it on to humanity at this crucial time. Ac Tah is this person. His messages and information are urgent yet positve. He does not promote any particular religion, philosophy or way of life. In his talk he will speak with a knowing authority about the changes to come in 2012, the Mayan calendars and their advanced sciences. Most importantly about what we must be doing now to remain happy and secure as these profound changes occur.
There will be a question and answer period and
a book signing at the end of his talk.  For more information go to http://actah2012.com/.
