The classics live on with us: this two-part production from the Hungarian National Ballet features one work from Harald Lander and another by George Balanchine, with the latter piece making its first appearance in Hungary.
Études is one of choreographer Harald Lander's most outstanding creations, one that he crafted for the Danish Royal Ballet in 1948. Études depicts the everyday work of ballet dancers in its full reality and grandeur: the beauty and aesthetics of classical ballet and the joy and thrill of Dance.
Although Tchaikovsky never intended his four orchestral suites to be used as ballet pieces, George Balanchine felt that they immediately suggest the idea of dance. The choreography Theme and Variations, now considered a classic, evokes the golden age of Russian ballet and celebrates its memory. The work, set in a ballroom, features solo and corps de ballet dances performed by a male and a female principal and the corps. True to its title, they faithfully follow all 12 variations explored in a single movement of one of Tchaikovsky's suites.
