The 10th Theater Olympics will close on Saturday with an evening of comprehensive art and a program for Midsummer’s Eve at the Margaret Island Theater, MTI reported on Wednesday.
The dance piece based on Béla Bartók’s The Miraculous Mandarin and Ravel’s Bolero will be accompanied by four-hand piano music on the Main Stage of Margaret Island. Béla Bartók’s piece will be accompanied by pianists Gergely Bogányi and Misi Boros, and Bolero by Károly Binder and Gábor Varga, the organizers said in a statement on Wednesday.
The all-artistic production will be staged by InterEUropa Ballet, Sopron Ballet, and Forrás Produkció in a unique performance with an international cast. The dance works are choreographed by Michael Kropf, directed by András Pataki and performed by a number of internationally renowned dance artists.
The stage performances will be followed by a special Midsummer Night’s Eve Comprehensive Art program with light painting in the trees of Margaret Island around the open-air stage.
