Laurencia


Ballet in two acts
  •  
Laurencia is an opulent, spectacular and truly – in the positive sense of the word – theatrical ballet: scorching hot emotions and movements bursting with explosive power, in which classical steps are intertwined with fiery Spanish rhythms. Amidst virtuoso soloists and duets, harmonic ensembles and exciting crowd scenes unfolds a dramatic tale inspired by Lope de Vega’s play Fuente Ovejuna: the violent suppression of a budding love affair compels the community to rebel against the blind and brutal powers-that-be. 

Nóra Rományi and István Rózsa have reconceived the visuals, based on the original designs by Vadin Ryndin, for this choreography updated by Michael Messerer to serve as the Hungarian National Ballet’s new full-length production.
