This production of the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble and Honvéd Male Choir recounts the strange story of a woman punished with death for infidelity, one of the most mysterious of old Hungarian ballads, a tale of cruel beauty and tragedy that represents some of the most profound human emotions.
The subject is perennial: the flare of irresistible, overwhelming love, burning passion, infidelity and jealousy - the eternal conflict of the relationship between a man and a woman is now told i...n the language of dance.
The performance includes two choral works by Zoltán Kodály.
This performance of the Bartók Spring is presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with the Hungarian National Dance Ensemble.
We would like to draw the attention of our audience to that the current pandemic regulations may also affect the online program of the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks, the program and the dates of the events may change.
