    Ballet Company of Győr
    The Belgian choreographer Ben van Cauwenbergh -- previously ballet director of the Hessian State Theatre of Wiesbaden, currently filling the same role at the Aalto Theatre in Essen -- has drawn inspiration from the multi-faceted music and vivacity of the rock group Queen, and from the personality of Freddie Mercury.

    In 2004, he created a unique production that melds rock music with the aesthetics of classical ballet.


    The principal themes of the production are love (Love of My Life), the golden age of rock and roll (Crazy Little Thing Called Love), the grotesque (Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon), and the exciting ambience of the criminal underworld (Another One Bites The Dust).

    The composition of the closing scene is a requiem for Freddie Mercury and his farewell to the audience (Who Wants to Live Forever).
