This is Christina Beskou’s first venture into dance-fiction. A rich man has an unhappy wife all too devoted to her daughter. Their lives become complicated by passion and jealousy, as a tramp, a pair of young lovers, a narcissistic woman and a lady of the night intrude upon them and these couples link up and disconnect as their feelings dictate. ...
With warm memories of the reception and hospitality they met, Christina Beskou’s dance group Seresta has returned from Luxemburg. In that Lilliputian country of Europe, Greece had the opportunity to present her contemporary face of dance at the European Festival at Wiltz in the fairytale setting of a Luxemburg castle.
Seresta reaped warm reviews of their performances of Beskou’s choreographies to the music of Armstrong, Piazzola, Rota, Levy and others, a programme we had seen at Lycabettus at the start of the summer season. It is noteworthy that Seresta’s trip to this important festival occurred through the recommendation of Luxemburg’s Ambassador to Greece, who had seen the performance of this dance troupe in Ydra!
The magic of that watery evening held, it seems, and he considered the quality of the production deserving of presentation to his compatriot.

Christina Beskou’s Seresta Dance Company returned last week from Luxembourg, where it participated in the Wiltz Festival.
Enthusiastic reviews were published by several newspapers. The final number, People, choreographed by Beskou, “stunned the audience” with its “wonderful music, rich and colorful costumes and studied lighting” according to the Luxembourg daily, Tageblatt.
