Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs
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.
Tolstoy’s great prose masterwork towers over the western literary canon as one of the most riveting works of fiction ever written. Marina Kesler has adapted this demanding novel as a ballet, giving the heroine of the piece a voice through the powerful music of Shostakovich.
Since its premiere, “Giselle” has inspired generations of choreographers and has become the epitome of romantic ballet. It was immediately declared not only a worthy successor to the ballet “La Sylphide” but also “the greatest ballet of its time”, wonderfully fusing music, movement and drama.
As the ballet event of the fall season, the Estonian National Ballet presents an homage to the great Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky on 20 November. George Balanchine’s “Serenade” and Mai Murdmaa’s “Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6” will take the stage.
The ballet is about feelings, their beauty and pain, and spiritual and sensual love. It is the story of two young people with a passionate spark of life, who, while reaching towards each other, hope to overcome the stuffy stagnation of the sense and way of life of the Baltic-German nobility and to live boldly and freely.
