‘Tango. Radio & Juliet’, a ballet show dedicated to World Art Day and broadcast online by the National Opera Bucharest

Friday, 16 April 2021 , ora 13.52

The National Opera Bucharest will broadcast online the contemporary dance show "Tango. Radio & Juliet" by Edward Clug to celebrate World Art Day. The recording of the show will be broadcast free of charge on Thursday, April 15th, starting at 19 PM, on the National Opera Bucharest YouTube channel, by accessing the link shorturl.at/axCD4.

The performance unites two choreographic works of the famous dancer and choreographer Edward Clug, an artist of Romanian origin.The chosen musical pieces are extremely diverse in genre, from composers like Astor Piazzolla and Goran Bregoviæ to the sounds of the British alternative rock band Radiohead.

Both works represent a choreographic poem, each being structured as a poem conveying mood. The moves of the dancers, carefully elaborated, spectacular, are loaded with force, both in "Tango" and in "Radio and Juliet". In "Tango", Clug borrows the steps from Argentine tango, and in "Romeo and Juliet" contemporary and fast movements, sometimes similar to breakdance forms. Tango, one of the most passionate dances in the world, and the opposite of the eternal lovers' story (Romeo and Juliet) are bound together, in a unique way, in the show "Tango. Radio and Juliet" to give life to the most powerful and contradictory feelings: passion, love, disillusion, loneliness.

Edward Clug has staged performances in the most important ballet companies in the world and has created dance notations specially for international dance stars.Under his leadership, the Ballet Company of the Maribor National Theatre in Slovenia has become one of the most respected institutions of the like in the world in the last decade.

World Art Day is celebrated every year on the 15th of April, in recognition of the contribution of artists to the enrichment of cultural space and universal values.The date was chosen in memory of the Italian painter, sculptor, architect, inventor and scholar Leonardo da Vinci, born on the 15th of April, 1452 and considered a symbol of free expression and a visionary of the art world.
