The Heart of August

The original idea for this ballet was to follow on from part one, which was given by the Ballet Vlaanderen in Gent and Anterp in October 2017, to make a full evenign work. In the event, the second part that Edouard and I are adding will be, at this stage, a free-standing shorter work using the same musical source material – reworkings of Johann Strauss and Gluck. As with the first part the music is performed by the excellent Hermes Ensemble: Romek Maniewski and Jerémie Ninove, cellos; Elias Bartholomeus, double bass; Stijn Bettens, accordion; Geert Callaert, piano and music director.
