Why See Hungarian State Opera - LOL: Three Pieces by Hans van Manen?
Hans Van Manen's Dance Triptych LOL
With their historic home venue currently under construction, the world renowned Hungarian State Opera embarks on a historic tour of US shores, bringing the music of their homeland to New York City's Lincoln Center for a strictly limited run this Fall. The 134 year old company debuts a vibrant program of ballet and opera works, including the US premieres of Ferenc Erkel's Bank Ban and Janos Vajda's one-act opera Mario and the Magician.
Joining forces with the Hungarian National Ballet, the Opera closes their exciting short residence with LOL, three pieces by internationally acclaimed Dutch choreographer Hans Van Manen. Renowned since the 60s as a pioneer of the synthesis between academic ballet and modern dance techniques, Van Manen presents a sensual duet set to Erik Satie's beloved piano pieces entitled Trois Gnossiennes, the fiery energy and tango-infused choreography of 5 Tangos and the witty spirit and sophisticated dance vocabulary of Black Cake.
Performance date: 11 November 2018

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
The real spinning carousel in this production is love. That, for better and worse, is what makes nature churn - and the world go round - in this show's blissful, anguished universe.
