Angelika is the first Slovak ballet written by composer Eugen Suchoň (1908 - 1993), one of the founders of Slovak musical modernism, and was written by the then seventeen year old music school student for chamber orchestra. The work - which is dominated by Suchoň’s youthful harmonic clarity and melodic freshness - was found in the composer’s estate along with compositions from his pre-opus period. Mauro di Candia, the choreographer and director of the first staging of Suchoň works presented his staging of Angelika as an original, precise and pure ballet in the current choreographic language, married with the musical elements of Suchoň’s melodic score.

Angelika won the 2015 Minister of Culture Award for outstanding contribution in the field of theatre and dance and artistic achievements for the world premiere of the first ever Slovak ballet.
