Ballets by Radu Poklitaru in Kyiv
“Жінки у ре мінорі” (eng "Women in D Minor”) is a one-act ballet set to music by Johann Sebastian Bach. It tells the tragic story of a female friendship.
“Довгий різдвяний обід” (eng "The Long Christmas Lunch") is a ballet-reflection based on the play by the prominent American playwright Thornton Wilder with music by Antonio Vivaldi. The story of the Bayard family over 90 years is presented in the form of life scenes. They all take place in the dining room during Christmas dinners. You can see the traditions in the United States and in a particular family change before your eyes. Some family members leave and new ones appear. This is called life.
