The Ballet Theater at the City of Székesfehérvár will start the year 2022 with a new performance on Sunday, February 27, venue: Vörösmarty Theater.

The first act of the two-act dance theater evening is Alexander Ekman’s Whim. The second act of the performance is the title track of the evening, Prometheus.

In the summer of 2006, with the help of IT Dansa in Barcelona, ​​Alexander Ekman wrote a humor-filled play about whimsical people who are constantly struggling to integrate and constantly strive to behave rationally. How do we try to maintain the appearance of our intact minds even when madness is circling us? The work as a whole presents a variety of situations taken from real life. Looking at the rehearsals, Ekman realized that he had managed to create a strange musical that was dark and sad. In fact, you can’t decide if you should laugh or not. Humorous, but not really funny. Sad, yet not so sad. It’s enjoyable, but not so enjoyable.

Ballet music called The Creatures of Prometheus was Beethoven’s first encounter with the stage in the early 1800s.

“Beethoven’s music glows like fire. Fire is a symbol that well expresses man’s desire for light and to know the unknown. In my interpretation, Prometheus is an antihero. This situation brings tragicomic elements to the story, and the ballet turns into a kind of burlesque, ” said by Attila Egerházi, the choreographer of the ballet and the director of the Székesfehérvár Ballet Theater.

On Sunday evening, February, 27,. at 6.15 p.m. before the performance, the director Attila Egerházi will hold an audience meeting in the auditorium buffet on the ground floor of the Vörösmarty Theater.

Tickets are available on the spot at the Vörösmarty Theater lobby.
