We are pleased to announce our intentions to publish a thematic Special Issue, named “The History of Hungarian Ballet”.
The existing research corpus of the history of Hungarian ballet is given primarily by the results of fundamental research. Systematic research in the field of art theory, which has been initiated in the last few years, has placed the main points of Hungarian ballet history in interdisciplinary contexts—the opening of the Hungarian Theatre in Pest and the art of the first Hungarian female choreographer, the star of Hungarian ballet romanticism; the spectacular ballets after the opening of the Royal Hungarian Opera House around the turn of the century; the period up to the First World War, which laid the foundations for the training of the ballet company; the all-art endeavours between the two world wars; and the theoretical issues surrounding Hungarian ballet education. The foundations of Hungarian ballet research—approached from the theory of art—were thus laid.
The upcoming Special Issue is in line with this approach. The aim of the issue is to present the international connections and Hungaricums of the development of the Hungarian ballet repertoire within a framework of cultural history and art interpretation, with special attention to issues that have been little examined thus far: the interaction of different dance styles, the theoretical and methodological issues of dance education, the development of the repertoire of the Opera House, all-art endeavours, and the connections with music history.
The aim is to provide a framework of a history of ideas for the significant turns in the history of ballet, laying the foundations for a theoretical understanding of ballet.
The thematic topicality of the Special Issue is given by the 80th anniversary of the death of Nicola Guerra—who developed the corps de ballet of the Opera House—in addition to the reopening of the Opera House after five years of reconstruction, and the recent commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the death of Vaslav Nijinsky, a dance genius with strong Hungarian connections, during the pandemic.
