Classical ballet in three acts

Set in the time of the French Revolution and sweeping in its power and tempo, The Flames of Paris could be called one of the most successful Soviet ballets; at the initial performances, every last member of the audience stood up and joined the artists in singing La Marseillaise. 

In that time and place this joint effort by the composer, the librettists and the choreographer to create a genuine ballet drama was considered innovative. This emblematic ballet story requires the dancers simultaneously to be capable of demonstrating a high level of skill at both classical ballet technique and character portrayal. At the Budapest Opera it was last put on in 1977, now Michael Messerer reconceives the piece for the Hungarian National Ballet.
