Film history books recount how the four musicals directed by Ernst Lubitsch in the early years of sound — “The Love Parade” (1929), “Monte Carlo” (1930), “The Smiling Lieutenant” (1931) and “One Hour With You” (1932) — helped define what talking movies would be. Now all four have been released in “Lubitsch Musicals,” an indispensable boxed set from Eclipse.

Lubitsch’s precise, highly stylized direction of actors, his genius for concentrating the maximum amount of narrative information in a few carefully chosen shots and symbolic details, his masterful sense of ellipsis (presenting only the most important story points and leaving the rest to the viewer’s imagination) — all these devices and more had emerged during Lubitsch’s silent-film period, and by 1929 had already been enshrined as “the Lubitsch touch.”

But Lubitsch wasn’t content to let things stand, not when faced with the transformative technical advance represented by sound. Where so many of the early musicals are simply passive records of already established stage hits (like RKO’s 1929 “Rio Rita”) or strung-together highlights that showcase a studio’s stars in various production numbers (like Warner Brothers’ “Show of Shows,” also 1929), the Lubitsch films are full-fledged book musicals that integrate their songs into their plots and frequently move, operetta style, from spoken dialogue to recitative to full musical performances. They are light, fluid and graceful at a time when the heavy apparatus of the talkies was threatening to render movies flat and stagebound.

For reviewers at the time, these movies were buoyant, witty and casual in a way the plodding stage adaptations were not. Less remarked upon then but more important in the development of the medium was Lubitsch’s innovative way of using sound.

For Lubitsch the new medium wasn’t just for recording dialogue but also for bringing out the musicality contained in sound effects. (See in “Monte Carlo” how the chugging of a train engine slips into the rhythm of “Beyond the Blue Horizon,” sung by Jeanette MacDonald.) He uses sound to suggest whole realms of off-screen space unavailable to the silent film, employing sound cues as a way of replacing dialogue (like the trumpet call in “The Smiling Lieutenant”), much as he would use visual cues to replace entire sequences of dramatic action.

Their formal and historical importance aside, these films remain marvelously adult entertainments, at ease with human desire (and its inevitable conflicts with the institution of marriage) in ways that movies of our own time either ignore or trivialize into crude physical comedy. Lubitsch’s coquettishly liberated women (Jeanette MacDonald in three of the four films here; Claudette Colbert in the fourth, “The Smiling Lieutenant”) unabashedly enjoy sex as much as their rakish mates (Maurice Chevalier in three; Jack Buchanan, a gifted but now forgotten British musical star, in “Monte Carlo”).

In “One Hour With You,” the last of Lubitsch’s musicals for Paramount (he would make one more, perhaps his greatest, for MGM: the 1934 version of “The Merry Widow”), the Chevalier character, a happily married (to MacDonald) Parisian doctor, eventually gives in, despite his better instincts, to the sexual blandishments of his wife’s best friend (Genevieve Tobin). They spend a late night together, during which, Lubitsch clearly indicates, they enjoy a sexual dalliance — for which MacDonald smilingly forgives him at the film’s conclusion. Attitudes like this would disappear with the enforcement of the Production Code in 1934, seldom to return to American movies again.

Which is not to say that beneath their bubbling Art Deco surfaces these films are not actively and even philosophically engaged with moral questions. The masterpiece in this collection, and the film that leaps out from the others for its dark undertones and sharply painful emotions, is “The Smiling Lieutenant,” filmed as Lubitsch’s own marriage was collapsing.

According to Scott Eyman’s biography of Lubitsch, the director had discovered that his first wife was having an affair with his best friend and longtime collaborator, the screenwriter Hanns Kräly. There had been a public fistfight with Kräly, divorce papers had been served, and Lubitsch had left Hollywood for Paramount’s studios in Astoria, Queens. In the film Chevalier plays an Austrian officer who is forced to give up his mistress — a beer garden violinist, played by Colbert — when he is claimed as a mate by the unattractive and uncultivated princess of a neighboring country (Miriam Hopkins, in her second film role).

For once, Lubitsch does not make the film’s point of view Chevalier’s (undergoing his own divorce at the time, Chevalier here seems an unusually strident, even hysterical figure) but Colbert’s. Her character’s sacrifice at the film’s finale — she instructs Hopkins in the finer points of choosing lingerie, then slips away, leaving her lover to his new bride — recapitulates a note in Lubitsch’s great silent adaptation of “Lady Windermere’s Fan” (1925) and expands it into a major chord of melancholy and mature resignation.

Because “Lubitsch Musicals” is a project of Eclipse, the budget division of the Criterion Collection, it is not quite as perfect as would be expected. The liner notes are informative but minimal; there is no audio commentary; and a few obvious supplementary items are missing, like the three Chevalier production numbers that Lubitsch directed for the 1930 revue film “Paramount on Parade.” (In the wishful thinking department, it would have added much to include “Broken Lullaby.” A pacifist plea made between “The Smiling Lieutenant” and “One Hour With You,” this is one of Lubitsch’s rare straight dramas and one of his most powerful films. Like so much of the important Paramount product of the 1930s, “Lullaby” has been allowed to drop into obscurity by its current owner, Universal Pictures.)

The set’s prints show some light speckling and scratches, though nothing too serious, given the age of the films. Surprisingly, “The Smiling Lieutenant” is the best transfer here and looks close to perfect — remarkable for a film that was considered lost until the 1980s, when a print was found in the Danish film archives. (Eclipse, $59.95, not rated.)

SANTO DOMINGO.- Juan Luis Guerra ganó su segundo premio Grammy americano en la categoría Mejor Álbum Tropical con su disco “La llave de mi corazón”.

El artista dominicano volvió alzarse con un gramófono en la 50 entrega del Grammy para la industria de la música anglosajona.

Con este galardón Juan Luis se convierte en el primer artista dominicano de la música popular en obtener dos Grammy americano, ya que el primero lo ganó con el disco “Bachata Rosa”.

En esta categoría Juan Luis competía con El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, por “Arroz con Habichuela”; la Spanish Harlem Orchestra, por “United we swing”; Isaac Delgado, por “En Primera Plana”, y Cubanismo, por “Greetings from Havana”.

El anuncio se hizo en una ceremonia no televisada en la que se repartió la mayoría de los 110 premios, y que se realizó justo antes del espectáculo transmitido en vivo desde el Centro Staples de Los Ángeles a través de la cadena CBS.

Al conversar, a través de la línea telefónica, con LISTÍN DIARIO, directamente desde Los Ángeles, dijo sentirse agradecido de Dios por todas las bendiciones que había recibido con “La llave de mi corazón”.

“Me siento muy contento. Viajamos con la ilusión de recibir este premio, y lo logramos”, dijo el artista super emocionado, unos minutos después de haber recibido el premio.

Juan Luis expresó que en el momento de escuchar su nombre, se sintió un poco diferente, “porque se trata de un público que no conoce tan a fondo la bachata, y eso es maravilloso”.

El intérprete de “Las avispas” destacó que con este gramófono este disco ya ha logrado siete premios Grammy, seis que ganó en el Grammy Latino, y este que acaba de recibir en Los Ángeles.

“Siempre he dicho que los premios son un estímulo para todos los artistas, y para mí eso es lo que significa, un estímulo a seguir trabajando; y como todos los otros premios que he ganado lo comparto con el pueblo dominicano”, expresó.

La más premiada
El artista destacó que “La llave de mi corazón” ha sido la producción que más premios ha obtenido en toda la historia de su carrera musical, así lo confirmó el artista al hacer un recorrido rápidamente en su memoria.

“Así es este ha sido el disco con el que más premios he ganado, ya que a parte de los Grammy, obtuve siete categoría a los premios Billboard y cuatro a Los Nuestros”.

Con este disco el artista dominicano también se convirtió en el máximo ganador de los Latin Grammy, y en el artistas que más gramófonos ha obtenido en la historia de esta premiación.

Durante la ceremonia Juan Luis estuvo acompañado de su esposa Nora, y adelantó que se quedará unos días en Los Ángeles para descansar, por lo que su regreso lo tiene programado para el próximo sábado.

En el Casandra
El 10 de marzo la Asociación de Cronistas de Arte (Acroarte) rendirá un homenaje en medio de la ceremonia de los Premios Casandra. Al intérprete de “Que me des tu cariño” le preparan un número musical en donde participará el puertorriqueño Luis Fonsi, y una represetanción de artistas jóvenes del país.

Dentro de los premios Casandra, Juan Luis fue también el más nominado en ocho categorías.

EN ESPERA
Dentro de los reconocimientos internacionales el dominicano obutuvo este año siete candidaturas a los Latin Billboard, incluyendo a compositor y productor del año.

Además, junto a su grupo 440 es finalista en las categorías de Artista del Año, Álbum Tropical del año de dúo o grupo por “La llave de mi corazón”. También Tema Tropical airplay del año de dúo o grupo por partida triple, con “La llave de mi corazón”, “Que me des tu cariño” y “La travesía”.

Lo Nuestro: En los premios Lo Nuestro Juan Luis obtuvo cuatro nominaciones dentro de la categoría Música Tropical.

Destácándose Álbúm del Año (La llave de mi corazón); Artista Masculino del año, Canción del Año (Que me des tu cariño) y Artista del Año en la cateogoría Tropical Merengue.

“American Songs and Dances” by The New York City Ballet

Inspired by America, Then Brought Onto the Stage

By JENNIFER DUNNING

The New York City Ballet’s “American Songs and Dances” is an odd collection of dances. The program, seen on Saturday night at the New York State Theater, should have been much more fun and thought-provoking.

The dancers seem to have settled into Peter Martins’s “Thou Swell,” a celebration of the music of Richard Rodgers, snazzily arranged by Glen Kelly. The overall look was a good deal less fussy, and looks are everything here. The ballet’s series of duets and brief solos unfolds in a stylish, faintly Art Deco cabaret designed by Robin Wagner. Julius Lumsden’s costumes make the men look casually elegant and the lead women look glamorous, though the four corps women do resemble gnats.

The ballet opens magically, with the dancers slipping in from one or another of the set’s multilevel, mirrored crannies to dance the night through to heart-tuggers and rambunctious odes to love, sung with just the right piquancy by Betsy Wolfe and Mike McGowan. Nilas Martins, so good in relaxed, jazzy choreography, has a chance to do his easygoing thing in “Getting to Know You.” His partner throughout, Yvonne Borree, dances like an adorably impetuous kid sister who grows up to the sound of “With a Song in My Heart.”

Other standouts were Sara Mearns, new in her role, who was long, lean and luscious in dances partnered by Tyler Angle. Faye Arthurs’s liquid phrasing in “Blue Moon,” partnered by Charles Askegard, was another special pleasure in a fine cast completed by Darci Kistler and Jared Angle. The orchestra, conducted by Fayçal Karoui, seemed to be having as much fun as the dancers, with musical solos by Alan Moverman (piano), Ron Wasserman (bass) and James Saporito (drums).

Jerome Robbins’s “Ives, Songs” came next, sandwiched between Robbins’s “West Side Story Suite” like a portobello mushroom between slices of iced lemon cake. “Ives” responds to American themes, both musical and social, with typically thorny darkness in songs sung by Philip Cutlip to piano accompaniment by Cameron Grant.

The score seems an odd choice, though it allows Robbins to set up an unconvincing ballet version of “Our Town.” There are little girls in ruffled dresses, stomping boys, World War I soldiers and a few lugubrious adults (Wendy Whelan, Mr. Askegard, Ms. Mearns and Jared Angle). Dena Abergel and Jason Fowler wander through with the quiet, glowing resonance of memories, with a slow-walking Robert La Fosse doing the remembering.

West Side Story Suite” should have been a fizzy chaser after all this, but it was not. Amar Ramasar made a strong role debut as Bernardo, the leader of the Sharks, in this reworking by Robbins of the Broadway musical for the concert stage. Mr. Ramasar’s chill dignity and innate authority, in his restrained dancing as well as his acting, made Bernardo more menacing than usual and, strangely, almost poignant. The always vivid Georgina Pazcoguin was new as Bernardo’s girlfriend, Anita, spitting the choreography out explosively.

It might have been a lingering lugubriousness from the “Ives,” but the rest of the lead cast — Benjamin Millepied as the sainted Tony; Damian Woetzel as Riff, the leader of the Jets; Ms. Arthurs as Bernardo’s sister Maria; and Gretchen Smith as her friend Rosalia — seemed slightly pallid. But Ms. Pazcoguin, Mr. Woetzel and Ms. Smith sang impressively. Those in the large corps took their unaccustomed roles and ran with them, however, with a nicely tough and tousled Jennifer Tinsley-Williams as living proof that City Ballet dancers can snap fingers with the best of them.

The program continues through Feb. 20 at the New York State Theater, Lincoln Center; (212) 870-5570 or nycballet.com.

Fazil’s Times Square Studio closed after 73 years

By JENNIFER DUNNING

The places where cultural history was made in New York City have largely disappeared, and on Friday another institution was lost. Fazil’s Times Square Studio closed after 73 years as a ramshackle, homey rehearsal center that served as a mecca for everyone from movie stars to struggling tap, flamenco and Middle Eastern dancers.

The rates were cheap. Even penniless artists could afford to rent there. In Studio A-4 — one of 14 rehearsal rooms in the three-floor center on Eighth Avenue, between 46th and 47th Streets in Clinton — dancers for many years paid 25 cents to spend an entire day working in the studio that was affectionately known as “the snake pit.”

“As many as could fit in,” said Fazil Cengiz (pronounced FAY-zil cen-GEEZ), a languid former owner and driver of taxis who bought the center in 1978. “The only rule was that you couldn’t bring a blanket and sleep there.”

A Catered Affair
Funny, heartbreaking and oh so human, A Catered Affair reveals relationships strained to their limits when a couple must decide whether to spend their life savings on a family business or to launch their only daughter's marriage with a lavish catered affair. Harvey Fierstein's book and John Bucchino's score seize the opportunity to explore the meaning of family and the need for love, both new and reawakened.

Cry-Baby
Baltimore, 1954. Everyone likes Ike, nobody likes communism, and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in town. He's a bad boy with a good cause—truth, justice, and the pursuit of rock ‘n' roll—and when he falls for a good girl who wants to be bad, her charm school world of bobby sox and barbershop quartets will never be the same. Based on the John Waters film.

Gypsy
Curtain up! Light the lights! Be there as Broadway's leading lady takes on Broadway's greatest role. Patti LuPone makes theatre history in one of the greatest American musicals of all time, written by Arthur Laurents with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Mr. Laurents directs this production.

In the Heights
A quintessential New York musical about a vibrant and tight-knit community at the top of the island of Manhattan. The music pulses with the hopes and dreams of three generations as they struggle to forge an identity in a neighborhood on the brink of transition. Written by Quiara Alegria Hudes; music and lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Passing Strange
With a score that has some of the most tuneful, soulful rock songs and witty, thought-provoking lyrics in recent memory, Passing Strange is the moving and hilarious tale of a young, black bohemian on a journey of escape and exploration. As he leaves the confines of his middle-class, church-reared youth in South Central L. A., the further he travels the more he discovers that the journey within is the one that counts. Written by Stew and Heidi Rodewald.

South Pacific
The landmark musical's first-ever Broadway revival. The curtain rang down on Rodgers & Hammerstein's South Pacific in 1954 after five years of extraordinary acclaim and countless accolades, including nine Tony Awards® and a Pulitzer Prize. The songs include “Some Enchanted Evening,” “Younger than Springtime,” “Bali Ha' i,” “Nothing like a Dame” and “A Wonderful Guy.”

There is a sequence in Henri Oguike's latest work, All Around, which looks like nothing any other choreographer has made. The music is Native American, a deep, fibrous chug of percussion woven with decorative chants. In almost exact mimicry of its sound, a pair of dancers begin to tumble across the stage, crouched in each other's laps, a tangle of interlocking limbs. As they roll, they simultaneously manage to flip and fly in each other's grasp, their torsos twisting, their arms and legs flashing so fast they seem to be levitating. It is an extraordinary effect, as if they were being bowled along by an external force. If part of the illusion is created by the dancers' technical excellence, it is also due to the ingenuity and imagination of Oguike's choreography that we literally cannot see how this dazzling duet is achieved.

The companion piece, Touching All, is set to a collage of north African music. This is a sequence of solos, each one flaring briefly into action from a frieze of dancers walking across the back of the stage. While its language is more lucidly sculptural, it, too, carries a similar sense that the movement has emerged from somewhere beyond the dancers' knowledge. This elemental, instinctive quality is one Oguike pushes for a lot at the moment. In Little Red, his dancers respond to Vivaldi's violin music with a ferocity akin to Macbeth's witches. In Green in Blue, they spiral and twitch in almost unwilled response to Iain Ballamy's jazz score.

The problem, however, is that the choreography doesn't gel into a completely compelling evening. Structurally, the newer works are inclined to sag, and All Around feels overlong. The process is fascinating, but it needs an editor's eye.

· At Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea, on Friday. Box office: 01792 602060. Then touring.
