Balenchine- Est

On Thursday went to see
George Balenchine's Balenchine Est
at Opera in Budapest
.
The ballet consists 3 parts:
Serenade
- Tsaikovsky
Concerto Barocco
- Johann Sebastian Bach
.
The first 2 ones beautiful classical ballets
.
Who Cares?
- George Gershwin
The third one was more like musical type
-also very good!
.
George Balanchine (January 22, 1904 – April 30, 1983),
born in Saint Petersburg,
was one of the 20th century's foremost choreographers,
a pioneer of ballet in the United States,
co-founder and balletmaster of New York City Ballet:
his work created modern ballet,
based on his deep knowledge of classical forms and techniques.
He was a choreographer known for his musicality;
he did not illustrate music
but expressed it in dance and
worked extensively with Igor Stravinsky.

On Wednesday had dinner with children and friends
at Menza
.

The food in Menza is ok, nothing fancy
- had chicken breast with pistacchio coating
and some salad
. Menza burger is a good choice for children
- quite big though!
. Warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice-cream
for dessert
.
