The Polish National Ballet is six years old. This time translates into dozens of excellent productions, collaborations with great personalities from the world of dance, an ambitious company of young dancers with brilliant choreographer Krzysztof Pastor at the helm. There is plenty to boast about, which is why we have put together a ballet evening presenting the gems of our repertoire. These are the greatest works of the famous four: Balanchine, Bejart, Kylian and Forsythe, whose oeuvre defined contemporary ballet’s development. It is a rare opportunity to see such a series of outstanding choreographies in one show, and at the same time the toughest test of the Polish National Ballet company’s quality. It’s a must watch.
