In February last year, the celebrated Kyiv City Ballet left Ukraine’s capital for a much-anticipated tour of France. Just a day later Russia invaded, leaving the company stranded and unable to return home.
Over a year on, the war still rages and these exceptional dancers remain in exile. But with extraordinary resilience, the company has gone from strength to strength, training daily, devising new programmes, reprising classic works and thrilling those able to see them.
We are privileged to be welcoming this incredible group of artists to the Peacock Theatre for their first ever London performances. The company presents a varied programme of excerpts from some of their favourite pieces including Les Sylphides, a fragment from the ballet Tribute to Peace (choreographed by Ivan Kozlov), Carmen, Sirtaki, and Men of Kyiv (a Ukrainian folk dance). Enjoy a special evening of ballet and a unique occasion to show support for the people of Ukraine.
