And so, the favorite prima ballerina of the Zurich ballet of the last 2 decades, Yen Han, creates her own ballet company, where she is also a leading dancer. After a sensationally successful debut at the Shanghai Festival in the fall of 2019, the new project is gaining momentum, and an evening of 3 ballets is created, going to the piano solo music performed by Alexey Botvinov. Along with the famous masterpiece of Heinz Sperli- “Nocturnes” to Chopin’s music, Filipe Portugal and Ken Ossola, who came from Jiri Killian’s NDT company will present their new creations.

An evening of modern choreography in the neoclassical style - combining the special sincerity of emotional vigor based on the technical excellence of classical ballet - combined with live music - will bring unforgettable emotions to the Ukrainian audience and a new cultural experience.
