FASHION BALLET ´23
Ballet
The new SND building, Opera and Ballet hall
The follow-up to the highly successful Fashion Ballet project brings a new edition of four original miniatures, which will feature tandems of choreographers and fashion designers. Fashion will come alive through movement in original choreographies, and vice versa, the fashion designers will illustrate the sculptural beauty of the dancers of the SND Ballet through costumes.   Running time is indicative, as the dress rehearsal is still due for the production.   Do you also wish to be among the first to know what is going on at the SND?

LA FILLE MAL GARDÉ
Ballet
The new SND building, Opera and Ballet hall
This classical family ballet began its history in 1789. The current production of the ballet La fille mal gardée, about a widow Simone and her vain endeavour to prevent her daughter’s love for a young farmer, carries the signature of the choreographer Frederick Ashton. The popular comedy ballet title with beautiful pas de deux, big corps de ballet character dances and amusing mise-en-scene returns to the stage of the Slovak National Theatre after thirty years. Ashton’s production, with musical arrangements by John Lanchbery and the original sets by Osbert Lancaster, is one of the most frequently performed productions and is the centrepiece of the repertoire of many of the world’s leading ballet companies.   Frederick Ashton’s choreography is performed courtesy of Jean-Pierre Gasquet. This work is presented with the permission of Boosey & Hawkes Music Publishers Limited on behalf of Oxford University Press.   Running time is indicative, as the dress rehearsal is still due for the production.   Do you also wish to be among the first to know what is going on at the SND?

Signatures of the Masters
Ballet
The new SND building, Opera and Ballet hall

The medley Signatures 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.
