In the 2024/25 season, the SND Opera will continue its celebrations of the Year of Czech Music 2024 - the first première will be a new production of Leoš Janáček The Cunning Little Vixen. The operatic fairy tale for adults will be performed in a musical staging by the world-renowned conductor Juraj Valčuha and directed by the internationally acclaimed Slovak director Sláva Daubnerová. The second novelty of the SND Opera will also be a fairy tale, but this time, it will be conceived as a narrative family performance. Engelbert Humperdinck's most famous opera fairy tale The Gingerbread House (Hänsel und Gretel in the original) will be performed in a new Slovak translation by Ján Štrasser. It will be set to music by the young Slovak conductor Maroš Potokár and directed with imagination by Dana Dinková. The third première will be dedicated to an opera classic, Giuseppe Verdi's popular work Un Ballo in Maschera (A Masked Ball). The new production will be set to music by the new chief conductor, Tomáš Brauner, and directed by the world-famous Polish director Karolina Sofulak. After the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen and the Norwegian Opera in Oslo, this traditionally conceived production will be staged in Bratislava.
In the 2024/25 season, the SND Ballet will present the première of a contemporary dance opus Bolero +, by the sought-after Israeli choreographer Shahar Binyamin. He created a hypnotising movement abstraction on Maurice Ravel's iconic composition for a large dance ensemble. Bolero + will conclude the programme of neoclassical works - It will be preceded by Edwaard Liang's Murmuration and Craig Davidson's Entropy, which we have reintroduced to the repertoire thanks to the great success after the Signatures of the Masters. The showcase of top choreographies will meet the expectations of even the most demanding admirers of ballet art. The second première will be a dance rendition of Pushkin's verse novel Onegin. One of the most beautiful dramatic titles of ballet literature comes to the stage of the Slovak National Theatre, choreographed by the legendary John Cranko. The story of unrequited love retold in beautiful duets and spectacular choral dances, was choreographed to the melodies of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's compositions, which were arranged for the needs of the work by Kurt-Heinz Stolze.
