Yet on Sunday - June, 12, the historical building of the State Theatre Košice invites you to experience amazing and inimitable art of leading Ukrainian ballet soloists and thus support sorely tried Ukraine and its artists. You are kindly invited to the CHARITY GALA of ballet soloists from Kiev. The funds raised from the entry fee will be contributed to the Taras Shevchenko National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Ukraine.
Due to the war, Ukrainian artists lost the opportunity to perform on their first stage – the Taras Shevchenko National Opera and Ballet Theatre. Therefore, they have prepared an official ballet tour in the European Union countries to protect their cultural heritage and pass beauty and nobility of Ukrainian art. During the event, the audience will see soloists of the National Ballet Theatre of Ukraine and, particularly, its artistic director Olena Filipieva.
The concert program contains adapted fragments of Ukrainian and world ballet repertoire interpreted by the soloists of the Taras Shevchenko National Opera and Ballet Theatre of Ukraine.
Other gala concerts are organised by the Slovak National Theatre, Art House Piešťany – Lúčnica, and the State Opera in Banská Bystrica. The gala event is co-organised by the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic, SĽUK, the Slovak National Museum – Červený Kameň Castle.
The gala has been organised under the auspices of Natália Milanová, the Minister of Culture of the Slovak Republic.
