THE RENOWNED Kiev City Ballet (Kyjevský Balet) is conducting its first ever tour of Slovakia. The ensemble is part of the Kiev City Academic Theatre for Children and Youth, which was founded in 1982 by prominent musicians.

The leading personalities, soloists, choreographers and directors, including the theatre’s manager, Valentin Kozachenko, and artistic and ballet director Radu Poklitaru, have achieved international acclaim. From the repertory consisting of more than 50 pieces, two classical ballets have been selected for Slovakia: Swan Lake, to be performed only in the Istropolis Theatre in Bratislava, and The Nutcracker, offered to audiences in Bratislava, Nitra, Komárno and Piešťany.

The tour begins on November 25 in Bratislava and ends on December 15 in Komárno. More information can be found at ticketportal.sk.

Swan Lake, originally choreographed by Václav Reisinger and later by Marius Petipa, who also choreographed The Nutcracker, have become must-sees of classical ballet.
