Ballet Company of Győr | THE SCARLET LETTER

Ballet in Two Acts

This truly mesmerising undertaking by the Győr Ballet is nothing less than the first ever adaptation for the ballet stage of Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel The Scarlet Letter.

Set in Puritan New England during the era of the Indian wars, the American writer's instantly classic masterpiece tells a story of adultery. Its heroine is Hester Prynne: convicted of marital infidelity, she is forced to wear a scarlet letter "A” on her clothes as a sign of her sin. Stigmatized, Hester still keeps her head high and lovingly raises the child conceived from the affair. Hester will not name her partner in crime, because he is the community's much-respected young minister.

In the work, morality and hypocrisy combine with a gnawing sense of guilt and the yearning for revenge, with an exciting moral dilemma tightening between sinning and declaring one's emotions.

Performed by the Ballet Company of Győr and featuring the Students of the Győr School of Dance and Fine Arts
