Ballet lovers love international ballet galas. That is why they are often programmed by the world’s leading venues. They are a wonderful opportunity to feast your eyes on virtuoso performances of the most precious fragments of classical ballets and gems of contemporary choreography.
Warsaw has not seen a gala like that for years. To cater for the audience’s needs, the Polish National Ballet led by Krzysztof Pastor is now mounting one for the first time in its history. It will take place on 23 February 2018 on the opera house’s main stage and will feature the star of the Royal Ballet, Marianela Núñez; first soloist of the Bayerische Staatsballett, Osiel Gouneo; first soloists of the La Scala Theatre Ballet, Nicoletta Manni and Claudio Coviello; and the hugely talented winner of the Gold Medal in the last Moscow International Ballet Competition, Evelina Godunova with her partner Yevgeniy Khissamutdinov.
Naturally, the gala is also going to welcome the audience’s favourite artists of the Polish National Ballet, who are going to perform the best of their classical and contemporary repertoire, including Krzysztof Pastor’s Bolero danced to Maurice Ravel’s sensational music. Taking to the stage will be our first soloists: Chinara Alizade, Yuka Ebihara, Mai Kageyama, Maria Żuk, Paweł Koncewoj, Dawid Trzensimiech, Maksim Woitiul, along with many more dancers of our company.
