As the programme says, ‘the ballet, set against the backdrop of love, disappointment, death, remorse, unattainability, and reunion, illuminates dramatic narratives like “impossible love” and “affluent man – impoverished girl.”’ Zeynep Sunal Öngün celebrates the leap year by bringing the famous ballet back into the state opera and ballet company’s repertoire.
