The National Ballet of Ukraine

Event Details

The National Ballet of Ukraine, comprised of 150 dancers, 27 of whom will be part of the Canadian tour, is considered one of the world’s top-ranked ballet companies. Before the outbreak of war in February 2022, the company staged 16 productions a month at the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House in Kyiv, Ukraine. Today, the number of productions depends on the circumstances of the conflict. This company has danced all over the world and is responsible for keeping the national and classical repertoire standards for the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House.

These world-class Ukrainian dancers will tour Canada, performing excerpts of some of the world’s greatest ballets, such as “Le Corsaire” and “Don Quixote,” while also highlighting Ukrainian culture through traditional dance. The title of the show is “Nadyia Ukraine” – bringing the hope of Ukraine to your city. Nadiya means hope in Ukrainian.
