The next season starts with a ballet-performance, Zorba, the Greek which can be seen on 4th and 5th July. The choreography to the music of Mikis Theodorakis, which became world-famous after the film had been rewarded with three Oscars, and also the libretto were elaborated by Harangozó Gyula, the arts director of the Szeged Open-Air Festival. One of the matters of curiosity of the performance in co-operation with the Ballet of Győr is that a compelling sight, never seen in Szeged so far, will welcome the spectators. Dmitrij Simkin, the stage designer visualised a complicated, geometric, almost cubist space which is made exciting by its multi-step structure, on the one hand, and by a special 3D-projection, on the other hand. This latter one is able to execute unbelievable visual effects, besides its scene-underlining function. The Zorba will be a real festival-performance where even the Szeged Folk Dance Group will take its part.
