In San Jose’s production of Bournonville’s “The Toreador” four years ago, the duo proved themselves brilliant comedians. The fact that here the music-hall inspired physical humor of pratfalls, kicks and stumbles were so much on one note cannot be blamed on them. That’s what Stevenson wants. The single instant of real wit came in their attempting ballet steps for the Prince. The variations for the Seasons were choreographically modest but received fine interpretations, particularly from Amy Marie Briones as the Autumn and Shannon Bynum as the Fairy of Winter. Another scene-stealer came from Akira Takahashi’s high-flying Jester. His splits in the air seemed to get higher and longer as the evening progressed.

Political and social commentary also plays an important role in The Klezmatics’ music, “Given the opportunity, I think you have to express who you are and what you believe in, Certainly it’s true of what we sing, Ideologically, we stand behind what have written and recorded, “Once we got the basic elements of the musical language and ballet slippers pointe style under our belts, we felt compelled to really approach the music as personal statements, both musical and in terms of world view, We just want to have fun and be true to ourselves as musicians, And so far it’s working.”..

PETA, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, criticized the royal family for taking part in a “violent perversion,”  which could be harmful to the young prince’s “psyche,” according to ITV News.

The incident revived complaints about Prince William and Prince Harry going out on hunts when they were younger, especially now that William, the president of United for Wildlife, last year decried how “global wildlife populations have halved in his lifetime.”.
