The Cirque du Soleil – “Corteo”

Monday, November 7th, 2011
.
For 27 years now, The Cirque du soleil has been putting on the most spectacular and poetic circus acts of the time. The prestigious decors, top artists and polished set design have made The Cirque du Soleil internationally influential. This new show, Corteo, lives up to its reputation.
.
.
The show begins in a fun-fair atmosphere, where a clown evokes the subject of his own funeral. And so begins an interior journey that unfolds before the eyes of spectators, and which addresses the many facets of the clown: ridicule, tragedy, perfection, imperfection, strength and fragility. Each of his moods is illustrated by a circus act performed by a top class artist.
.

Whilst two acrobatic dancers show the equilibrium and the strength of the clown, a trampoline act (on beds!) reveals the childish nature of the person. As for his former love life, it is illustrated by spectacular aerial acrobatics on lights hanging several metres high. Twenty circus acts continue to punctuate this great interior journey. Corteo is also a scenographic and decorative performance. Rotating areas, a steel cable-car, a maze and huge curtains make up the scene of the show. Created by Jean Rabasse, the decor plunges the spectator into a lyrical and dreamlike world.

Cézanne and Paris

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The Hotel Pulitzer Paris recommends “Cézanne and Paris
-
Cézanne did not only paint Provençal scenes. In the course of twenty trips to Paris, the artist learned a style of painting that he would continue to develop in Provence, attracting interest and praise from critics, art dealers and collectors. The 80 works in this exhibition provide insight into the southern painter’s time in Paris.
.
The first section describes his arrival in Paris, his training in the city and early paintings, taking a close look at his mastery of landscape painting and use of Impressionist techniques. It goes on to explore Cézanne’s nudes. Working at a time when erotic paintings were becoming increasingly popular, he experimented with new ways to portray female nudes and invented his particular pictorial representation of them.
.
Still lifes also make up a significant portion of Cézanne’s work, and the exhibition spotlights the way he creates space and depth of perspective, and his masterly use of colour and shapes in his depictions of objects as well as his portraits and erotic paintings.

Hotel Pulitzer Paris presents a new decoration

Friday, June 19th, 2009

Barcelona, June 2009. Hotel Pulitzer Paris (www.hotelpulitzer.com), 3-stars boutique
hotel located in a historical building, in the Opera area of Paris, presents a brand-new
decoration of the spaces.
The decoration of the 44 rooms, reception area, breakfast room and the lobby has been structured by the Argentinean interior decorator Luzio, based in Barcelona.
He says that he has been inspired on the Paris elegance, its antiquarian eccentricities and the recycling of industrial objects.
Everything was set with the condition that the spaces shouldn’t look or feel like a hotel, moreover he was encouraged to create non standard elements and move away from traditional hotel design.
Amongst the raw materials used, old style leather on the sofas, oak floors, marble at the
chimney, the industrial iron on some furniture, and other decoration elements stand out
most.
The hotel offers spaces full of life and with a cosmopolitan air, in order to create a place
to enjoy life to the maximum for the guests.
Hotel Pulitzer Paris offers 29 Standard rooms and 15 Superior rooms.
They have micro-cement floors and industrial iron furniture which contrasts with lamps
of the 50’s and its white walls and bed linen. The basins are made with the same kind of
marble as Taj Mahal.
They are fully equipped with everything to guarantee the utmost comfort during the
stay:
minibar, safe, satellite LCD TV, direct telephone line, air conditioning/heating, wake-up
call service, desk, free WiFi, hairdryer, slippers, magnifying mirror, Fragonard bath
amenities.
Hotel Pulitzer Paris is member of Grupo Regina Hoteles (www.grhoteles.com), Spanish
company with experience since 1967, when it acquired the legendary Hotel Regina in
Barcelona. In year 2000, with the opening of the hotel Pulitzer Paris, recently renovated,
the group was launched internationally. In 2004, it opens the modern hotel Pulitzer in
Barcelona and, in 2005, buys the hotel Cyrano in Paris, which has been recently
remodelled and inaugurated as 9 HOTEL. The development of the group is still in
progress. In 2008, the Hotel Pulitzer Rome opened in the Italian capital and in 2010 the
first establishment will open outside Europe in Argentina, the Hotel Pulitzer Buenos
Aires.
The objective of Grupo Regina Hoteles is focused on the creation of contemporary hotels
located in the world’s top cities. The hotels of the group are distinguishable thanks to
their best location, service, cosmopolitan atmosphere and fantastic interior decoration.
All these elements create a luxurious environment for the guests.

Flawless Federer storms to historic first French crown

Monday, June 8th, 2009

Australia Open TennisThe tennis gods brewed up a storm around Roland Garros on Sunday afternoon as they prepared to welcome a new member into their midst. Roger Federer repelled the rain, thunder, and a certain Robin Soderling to take his rightful place among the immortals of the game.

The Swiss produced a near-flawless display, delighting his fans with the full range of shots that have made him arguably the greatest player of his era, to sweep aside Robin Soderling 6-1 7-6(1) 6-4 and seal his first-ever French Open title. The triumph enabled Federer to become only the sixth man in history to win all four Grand Slam tournaments, and also saw him equal Pete Sampras’ record of 14 majors.

The enormity of his achievement was evident on match point when Federer fell to the red earth of Roland Garros weeping tears of joy. Minutes later, Andre Agassi was on hand to present the Coupe des Mousquetaires and share in the Swiss legend’s delight as he held the trophy to the air, 10 years after the American had sealed his own career Slam with a far more hard-fought win here over Andrei Medvedev.

Early stranglehold

Federer owed his victory to a brilliant performance, by far his best of the tournament, in which he took a stranglehold on the match from the outset and clinically dissected his opponent’s game.

Seemingly overwhelmed by the event, Soderling was unrecognizable in the first set from the man who had swept all before him – including four-time champion Rafael Nadal – in his run to the final. The giant Swede was simply unable to find any rhythm or indeed any semblance of the form he had shown throughout the tournament, not that Federer gave him the slightest chance to settle.

The Swiss is a past master at winning Grand Slam finals and his experience was made to tell as he immediately got into his groove. His first serve was strong (firing down 16 aces throughout the match), his shot selection astute and return of serve simply breathtaking. The Swede’s wayward hitting early on made it easy for him, but Federer needed no second invitation to rack up the games and put some daylight between himself and his opponent.

Federer mixed up his shots brilliantly, slicing on the backhand side before accelerating his forehand follow-up to knock his opponent off guard. While Soderling’s earlier adversaries, including Nadal, had to a certain extent played into his hands by trying to outhit the Swede in hard-hitting baseline exchanges. Roger was not about to fall into the same trap. Making full use of his superb drop shot, tricky slice and mid-court angles, he moved the Swede forward and back almost at will.

Stormy weather

The first set was over in the blink of an eye, 6-1, wrapped up in just 23 minutes. The only thing that could knock the world No2 off his stride was the on-court intruder who briefly unsettled his concentration at 2-1 in the second set. Federer lost that game, and with storm clouds beginning to hover over Philippe Chatrier court, the momentum gradually began to shift. Little by little, Soderling righted his ship, steadying his serve and finally hitting the booming forehands that had proved so devastating earlier over the previous fortnight.

The rain gained in intensity through the middle games of the second set, and with a delay looking more of a possibility, both players looked for the break that would give them a huge psychological advantage to take into the locker room. The drizzle eased off however, and Federer’s serve kept him out of trouble heading into the match-shaping tie-break.

Brilliant tie-break

The No2 seed then seized the moment to demonstrate why he is, for so many, the greatest player of all time. He banged down four aces no less, a forehand winner and a magnificent drop shot en route to a 7-1 success that earned him a two-set lead and definitively turned the match in his favour.

In a hangover from the tie-break, Soderling immediately dropped his serve in the next game – a crucial moment as the No23 seed actually looked the more dangerous player as the third set wore on. On the few occasions that he drew Federer into a long rally, Soderling would invariably pull out a winner, but the Swiss refused to be distracted from his game plan, throwing Soderling off his rhythm with kicking second serves when his first service began to falter and sending passing shots down the line whenever the Swede came to the net.

The Swede earned his first break point of the match at 1-3 and then again had a chance to break back at 4-5, 30-40 when Federer was serving for the match. Had he taken either of those two points, the outcome of the match may have been very different.

Fitting denouement

As it was, the end was what most neutrals had been hoping for, and suitably moving. Soderling mishit on break point, Federer coolly dispatched a volley to take himself to championship point, and then a big serve proved to be enough as Soderling netted the return. Federer fell to his knees, the crowd rose to their feet and the thunder rumbled overhead…
