Dance fairy tale in two acts
Academic and staged folk dance in a friendly confrontation – dance medley
The captivating choreography enhanced by the three musical giants – Wagner, Mussorgsky and Rachmaninov, impressive set and interpretative challenge offer a promise of an unusual experience.
Marking the centenary of SND Ballet
Collaboration of Slovak choreographers with the crème de la crème of Slovak fashion designers.
The medley Manuscripts of the Masters brings, in Slovak première, stage pieces that represent the work of four imperative world choreographers of the 20th and 21st centuries – Edwaard Liang, Craig Davidson, William Forsythe and Jerome Robbins. Each is distinctive and unique in terms of movement vocabulary, different perceptions of the dancer's body and individual approach to the adaptation of dance technique into a choreographic text. The four one-act dance compositions are linked together by technical sophistication, emphasis on movement aesthetics and poetics that is largely reflected in the harmony of dance and musical master. The programme is intended to augment the repertoire with works of world modern ballet that represent a major challenge for performers, yet are an attractive delicacy for the audience.MURMURATION Music Ezio Bosso Choreography Edwaard Liang Costumes design Edwaard Liang ENTROPY Music Nicholas Robert Thayer Choreography Craig Davidson Costumes design Alana Sargent Set design Craig Davidson THE VERTIGINOUS THRILL OF EXACTITUDE Music Franz Schubert Choreography William Forsythe Costumes design Stephen Galloway Set and lighting design William Forsythe THE CONCERT (or The Perils of Everybody) Music Fryderyk Chopin Choreography Jerome Robbins Costumes design Irene Sharaff Set design Saul Steinberg IMPORTANT NOTICE Due to the ongoing pandemic situation and for disease prevention, we have to block (reserve) a large number of seats in the auditorium.
