I personally found the show very intriguing: as a foreigner who does not speak Hungarian, I really had to concentrate on the music and the movements of the dancers to be able to follow the storyline. I am happy to say that their performance was brilliant.
One could clearly see from the start that something was wrong with the relationship between the groom and the bride: her discomfort, his impatient behavior, the contrast between the protagonists and the other happy couples… It was spectacular.
I also appreciated how the directors used a cyclical type of story progression (the arguments and the fights between husband and wife, followed by the other couples happily dancing together season after season) without ever making it boring: it was truly an achievement!
If I must choose a favorite moment, it has got to be the final dance portraying the wife’s trial for adultery: I was shocked by the sudden change in colors (which went from light, serene ones to a dark and ominous red) and the tension only kept growing thanks to the wonderful chorus in the background.
Everyone gave it their absolute all, and it was a beautiful experience that I would truly recommend to anyone!
