This performance of the Bartók Spring is presented by Müpa Budapest as a joint event with Ballet Pécs.
This production of Ballet Pécs, which celebrates its 60th anniversary, was inspired by the works of Victor Vasarely, who was born 115 years ago. Itself a part of the city’s fabric, the company attached great importance to evoking Vasarely’s home town in the jubilee performance, and the works of art that inspired the production’s visuals were mostly chosen from the holdings of the Vasarely Museum, Pécs. These dance etudes, which reflect on the visual art, were choreographed by the Artistic Manager of the company, Balázs Vincze, Merited Artist, a holder of the Harangozó, Imre Zoltán and Seregi Awards. The stage set and the costumes were designed by two young but widely acknowledged, progressive artists, Balázs Cziegler and Fruzsina Nagy, respectively, while Richárd Riederauer contributed music to the production.
The current pandemic regulations may also affect the online program of the Bartók Spring International Arts Weeks, so the date of the event may change. For the most recent information, please visit our website and social media channels.
