Children’s ballet by Gyula Harangozó to the music of Tibor Kocsak
Premiere 1 February 2008
One of the best known Hungarian Choreographers and Stage Directors Gyula Harangozó, and a popular Hungarian musical designer Kentaur, have staged an unbelievably cheerful and dashing family ballet “Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs” at the Estonian National Opera. The ballet, full of tricks and visual surprises, is one of the most successful performances in Hungary.
Gyula Harangozó, Choreographer and Stage Director
“”Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs” is a ballet that can be enjoyed by both children and adults. I wanted to do something easy and retelling. It is important that a ballet would provide the dancer with the opportunity of acting and would not be concerned only with the technique. Therefore this ballet is like a musical – there is always something happening on the stage, there are no pauses between the dance scenes and changes of scenery are made without drawing the curtain. I have put stress on agility and action to keep children’s attention focused.”
