Ildikó Pongor has been a defining figure of the Hungarian National Ballet for several decades, where she first danced all the important female figures of the ballet oeuvre, and later acted as an artistic director and a choreographer. Vienna and Stockholm were important stages of her international career, but she also appeared in other major cities of Europe, North America, and the Far East. In 2012, she only said farewell the stage as a dancer; as a ballet master, she has an indisputable merit in the creation of many productions to this day. On her birthday, we celebrate the multi-award-winning Eternal Member and Master Artist of the OPERA with a gala featuring excerpts from the most popular classics, and we may see her on stage again for a short time among her students as well.
