About event

Why should you go to the ballet "Viy" by Radu Poklitaru?

1. Each statement of the troupe is an event in the cultural world of Ukraine.
2. New rethinking of the familiar story.
3. A stylish mix of choreography and music by Ukrainian composer Alexander Rodin.

We invite you to the ballet “Viy” staged by the unsurpassed Rada Poklitaru! Come to enjoy the mystical story based on the story of the great writer Nikolai Gogol.

This parable is about the testing of the human soul, the strength of the spirit, faith and unbelief. You will see a crazy story that happened to a simple student, Thomas Brutus. Serious emotions, despair, passions and struggle with their own internal demons will be played on the stage.

What happens when a dream is harder to distinguish from reality? And the belief in their capabilities is not strong enough? How to recognize evil, because sometimes it is able to put on the face of a beautiful and innocent creation? How to resist Viy and who is he: a dream or an evil force?

The new ballet from Radu Poklitaru is an amazing combination of unique decorations, unique costumes and the first time used by the team of ultramodern visual special effects!

In the production, all the characters retain their names, but one should not expect an illustration of a familiar plot. Author's reading Radu Poklitaru, as always, will be a creative rethinking of the scene of action, the actions of the heroes and the proposed circumstances.

Waiting for you!
