The Elegance Series is a collection of breathtaking Ballet performances from internationally renowned houses with well-loved Dance Stars. They feature productions by the greatest choreographers that we know today and of course the legacy of the legendary Marius Petipa. Born on July 11, 1932 Hans van Manen became one of the famous Dutch ballet dancers and choreographers. In 1960 he founded the Nederlands Dans Theater and was its art director from 1961 until 1970. From 1974 until 1987 he worked for the Dutch National Ballet. He was awarded by the Deutschen Tanzpreis in 1993, by the Erasmus Prize in 2000 and in 2004 by the Musikpreis der Stadt Duisburg. His work includes more than 90 choreographies. In barely two years’ time, between June 1995 and June 1997, he created six masterpieces in a row which were later produced by ntr Television and are included in this DVD.
