Description

Direct from Poland, Mazowsze returns to The Hanover Theatre as part of its special 60th anniversary tour with a holiday program that is a thrilling display of dazzling movement, vibrant color and stunning beauty. The tour is coordinated with major public television showings of the PBS special The Music and Dance of Poland (check your local listings).

The choreography and musical arrangements represent 39 regions of Poland with traditional performance styles. A full 23-member orchestra performs music ranging from Chopin to simple folk melodies beloved by the Poles for centuries.

90 dancers, musicians and singers are arrayed in a seemingly never-ending series of handmade traditional costumes – more than 1,000 in total, one more dramatic and colorful than the next. Some weigh as much as 30 pounds, making their energetic gravity-defying leaps, twirls and lifts even more impressive!

The Mazowsze performance troupe whirls, leaps, stamps and glides in a glorious outpouring of sound and motion, rhythm and music that celebrates the cultural legacy of Poland.
