Ballet under the stars: FAVN - CARMEN - BOLERO

(In case of cancellation due to bad weather, the performance will take place on Monday, June 26th, at 21:00)

An alluring kaleidoscope of the most intriguing music scores of the 20th century

20th century was undoubtedly an era of many turning points, poetic revolutions and avant-garde moments that have reshaped the landscape of ballet and dance in general. The zeitgeist, daring experiments and uniqueness of artistic ideas from that time are still a vast ocean of inspiration to many contemporary choreographers and dancers. Our aim to engage our public in a whole new world of dance aesthetics, brilliant and provocative ideas and vibrant spectacle, has envisioned a new staging of ballet triptych that features some of the most exciting choreographic masterpieces to the music of Shchedrin’s orchestra suite Carmen, Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a faun and Ravel’s orchestra piece Bolero. We invite you to join us on a journey of new discovery in the realms of dance in prestigious company of internationally acclaimed artists, Edward Clug, Valentina Turcu and Johan Inger.
