Notes & Reviews:
A brand new production of the Dutch National Ballet, brought to the stage in a choreography by artistic director Ted Brandsen Mata Hari's life was not just turbulent but also surrounded by mystery. Was she really guilty of espionage or was she used as a scapegoat? In 2017, the French government will break the seal on the archives in her treason case, 100 years after her death, and new facts about her mysterious life will be revealed. With attractive bonus features: "Making of" in 6 episodes, hosted by Sylvana Simons. Filmed live at the Dutch National Opera and Ballet, in February 2016, directed by Jeff Tudor
Dutch National Ballet • Anna Tsygankova • Music by Tarik O'Regan
"Mata Hari is an enterprise of epic proportions: a commissioned score from UK composer Tarik O'Regan, hundreds of stylish costumes by Francois-Noël Cherpin and a set designed by Clement and Sanôu... The scope is breathtaking." (Dancing-Times)
Ballerina Anna Tysgankova is a skilled and emotional ballerina who brings the character of Mata Hari to life... "Her magnetic presence, strong body language and mysterious aura perfectly suit that of Mata Hari... .she gives a dramatic interpretation of the role.." (Bachtrack)Notes & Reviews:
