Ballet version of the play of the same title by Tennessee Williams

Presented by special arrangement with The University of the South, Sewanee, Tennessee. A Streetcar Named Desire: Copyright © 1947, 1953 renewed 1975, 1981 The University of the South.

A Streetcar Named Desire is Marianna Venekei's first full-length choreography. The project, lovingly nurtured for many years, is a collaboration between her and composer-saxophonist László Dés. Using the means of modern ballet, its creators evoke the atmosphere, sights and music of the New Orleans of the 1940s, the time and setting of Tennessee Williams's original work, in a production driven by the sheer variety of the musical and dance motifs, and the unique personalities of the characters. The story of the fall of Blanche DuBois is a drama of family bonds, unrequited love, acceptance and physical force that never loses its relevance.

The permission of the copyright-holder was obtained through the intermediation of Hofra Kft. (
