From the trauma and heartbreak of war in their country, to the major cities of USA and Europe, and now to the stages of New Zealand. This is the Grand Kyiv Ballet of Ukraine.
Act One – The Ukrainian showpiece…Forest Song. This legendary ballet, which for over 75 years remains the pride of Ukraine. Forest Song is a magical love story, full of mysticism alongside the conflict between the human world and nature. It tells a tale of love and the fearless and brave Mavka, who longs for peace in her world, just as Ukraine longs for peace in her country today.
Forest Song is performed for the first time ever in New Zealand
Act Two – Don Quixote. This flamboyant and festive Spanish ballet is a much-loved romantic comedy. It tells the story of a courageous but troubled man’s quest for love. Gypsies, bullfighters, lavish costumes, breath-taking dancers and an inspiring music score ensures that Don Quixote is a not-to-be-missed experience. Two sensational performances. One magnificent evening of ballet.
