Zorba returns to Łódź, but it has not actually left since its premiere in 1990! Those who have seen this cult ballet choreographed by Lorca Massine (son of the legendary Leonid Miasin, choreographer of Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes) can still recall the images moving to the energetic music of Mikis Theodorakis with the final sirtaki dance. Those who were not lucky enough to see it know that they missed a lot. And they regret not seeing it – but only for a moment! The Greek character Zorba is famous all over the world for the legendary film role of Anthony Quinn – Zorba returns to Łódź in February 2020 in a new version! Who will play the role of this incredibly colourful character?… In Łódź, we have already admired Massine, Sulumbek Idrisov, Raffaele Paganini, Roman Komassa, Piotr Chojnacki and Krzysztof Brodek. Who will take the baton in this dance relay – that is for the choreographer to decide. He is already carefully watching potential candidates. There are many candidates, and the names of the predecessors oblige!
…This has exceeded all expectations! Almost half an hour standing ovation in the audience and a never-ending series of sensational encores of the dancers – wrote Anna Iżykowska-Mironowicz in Głos Poranny after the premiere in 1990.
This is surely a good sign!
