Reviews & Press

 
 

Gounod - Roméo et Juliette

.....fights requiring from the singers the agility of stuntmen. No doubt, he knows how to do it

The direction of actors is extremely neat and efficient, the two duels of the third act in particular, are settled with a striking realism

 These were now powerfully and convincingly choreographed by Ran Arthur Braun: I have never seen them so "lifelike" on an opera stage - bravo!

.... displays energetic choreographic and cinematographic ability to organize the complex machinery for individual and collective movement of such large groups and so many props.  Very visual scenes, such as the waltz at the New Year's Eve dance or the terrible roar of the huge and angry crowd on stage, whose force is such that one has the impression that it is going to invade the auditorium and spill into the audience, attest to of an accomplished sense of orchestration.

Verdi - Ernani - Fight Choreography

.... like a Tarantino blockbuster sends dozens of people into battle at the same time, including precisely orchestrated stunts.

Dafür kämpfen sie mit Worten, ihre Gefolgsleute mit Fäusten und Messern. Stuntleute besorgen das akrobatisch choreografiert, bisweilen fast balletthaft. Blut fließt aber nicht – es spritzt. Bevorzugt auf unschuldig weiße Wände. Quentin Tarantino lässt grüßen.e de Beer nimmt Anleihen bei der Ästhetik des zeitgenössischen Kinos und wählt artistische Action, um die Vierecks-Geschichte zu erzählen.

Rimsky-Korsakov, N. - Christmas Eve - Live Action Designer

The highlight of the production is the use of aerial acrobatics. Right at the beginning, the witch and devil ride into heaven from the smoking chimney of a roof. The blacksmith's flight through the air to the tsar's court also takes place before the astonished eyes of the audience, and the activities of the pagan spirits and deities also take place at dizzying heights. The performance is worth attending just for the bravura flight choreography of dancers and singers on thin wire ropes (stunt coordination by Ran Arthur Braun).

Teatr Wielki Poznan - L'enfant et Sortilege & Rossignol

Ran Arthur Braun was expected to add a pinch of madness in the opera. Like it was done a year ago, when he staged "Cyberiada" by K. Meyer....Now he proved that his imagination has no limit. Always based on physical theater and virtuosity
 

Ingenious and witty
 

Maestro

Birgitta Festival - Haydn - The Creation

The (Festival's) high point was in the hands of the Israeli-born director Ran Arthur Braun. The experience was fantastic! The director's intention was to create a universal view and experience the totality, in which, while listening and looking at the same time, the person feels his own smallness, but also exaltation of existence...Large-scale production with 100 people on stage (Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Risto Joost, the Latvian State Choir, soloists....Stunt Performers.....), focused on illusions and usage of all the senses, with music as the form of expression, together with movement, light - yes! .....It was a complete theatrical sensation.
 

Estonian Press

Haydn’s The Creation is rarely performed as a staged work, but this interpretation by the energetic Israeli director and choreographer Ran Arthur Braun made good use of the scaffolding behind and above the stage to turn the performing space into something resembling the illuminated margins of a Blake manuscript, or the crowded ceiling of a frescoed Baroque chapel. The three soloists were flown from wires, both above the stage and down the length of the auditorium, maintaining their composure (and their intonation) while being winched up and whizzed along on zip-wires. Their costumes included 18th-century coat and breeches, embellished with multicoloured wings, while other performers (drawn from street-players, Parkour experts, breakdancers and fire-jugglers) cavorted at floor level.
