BALLET OPENING Alicia Alonso Shines Brightly as Giselle By ALEXANDER FRIED ALICIA ALONSO was a bright star of the first of three Opera House performances by the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo last night. In the sad role of the de' ceived Giselle, she outshone everything that went on around her. She was plaintive and tragic without being maudlin. She projected warm sympathy. She danced with expressive high virtuosity and grace. For the most part, Igor Youskevitch partnered her handsomely. Some of his turns in the air, among other feats, were brilliant. Yet at times he did not land as lightly on his feet as of yore. Who is going to take the production carried along well enough to build up a great final applause from a capacity audience. But Irina Borowska was disappointing as the im perious, unearthly Queen of the Willis. And in the Willis scene, some of the unmusical sounds that came out of Conductor Ivan Boutnikolf's or chestra were hard for a tender ear to take. The long program, ending in popular "G a i t e Parisienne," had a light Latin interlude in "Sombreros." So long as the morning press could linger to watch it, the piece benefited from lively Mexican tunes or chestrated by Boutmkoff, from playful dance ideas of Chore' ographer Leon Danielian and SO count! it s tne old numocrs came tor ban trancisco drama cnt ics tnis wees with marquees on Market at. sporting such fascinating digits, in titles, as "Three Violent People" "tour Girls in Town" "Five Steps to Danger."
