Győr, 13 October 2014 – Last Saturday the Győr Ballet Company celebrated its 35th anniversary at the National Theatre of Győr. To mark the occasion, the Company put two masterpieces on stage, Bolero and Carmina Burana. After the performance the Award for Excellence in Dance, an award created by Audi Hungaria, was presented for the first time by Dr. Elisabeth Knab, Managing Director for Human Resources, to Adrienn Matuza, the Győr Ballet Company’s solo dancer.
“Audi Hungaria is proud to be the main sponsor of this internationally renowned ballet company since 2002. We will present the Award for Excellence in Dance to the Company’s best dancer each year,” said Dr. Elisabeth Knab, Managing Director for Human Resources of Audi Hungaria. “The Győr Ballet’s dancers are the embodiment of pure elegance, passion, and innovation, which unite us. Our common aim is to fascinate people, whether spectators or customers.”
Founded 35 years ago, the ballet company opened the new theatre season with a spectacular performance. With a rendition of Bolero choreographed by András Lukács and a staging of Carmina Burana choreographed by György Vámos, the audience was offered a truly close-up and personal experience of dance as an art. Adrienn Matuza, the winner of the Award for Excellence in Dance, played one of the leading roles in both ballets.
Ever since its incorporation, Audi Hungaria has been a major supporter of Győr’s cultural life within its corporate social responsibility. In addition to the Győr Ballet Company, the premium manufacturer has sponsored several cultural events and initiatives, such as the annual Hungarian Dance Festival or the closing concert of the Győr Summer Festival, featuring international star performers to offer a unique experience to Győr’s nearly 130,000 inhabitants.
