By popular demand, The Grand Kyiv Ballet of Ukraine will return to Australia in May, June and July 2024. They will present again their double bill of Forest Song & Don Quixote. The audience response to their performances in 2023 was literally amazing with standing ovations following every performance.
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.
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.
