28–30 June 2024

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.
