Tamás Szarka - Zsuzsa Vincze - Zoltán Zsuráfszky:


A dance performance about the adventurous life of Maurice Benyovszky

14 August 2015 Friday 8 pm
Margaret Island Open-air Stage

An outdoor performance in cooperation with The Hungarian National Dance Ensemble and The Open-Air Theatre.

In this dance performance, we follow the passions and ups and downs in the life of an extraordinary man and almost tour the globe, just as the famous adventurer, popular traveler and memoirist did in the middle of the 18th century. Maurice Benyovszky was educated, multilingual and had an irresistible appeal to women. His thinking and ideas were well ahead of his time.

Benyovszky, a Hungarian hussar captain and count, Slovakian landowner and Polish patriot was first a Russian prisoner at Kamchatka (from where he fled after composing the world’s first proclamation of independence), a French hero, and finally the King of Madagascar.

Performed by: Hungarian National Dance Ensemble (formerly Honvéd Dance Theatre)
