e are proud to announce that Nikola Márová and Ondřej Vinklát, our first soloists, have received the Thalia Prize for extraordinary artistic performance in 2017.
Nikola Márová has been awarded the accolade for her portrayal of the role of the Mother and Ondřej Vinklát for his interpretation of the Chosen One in the production of Glen Tetley’s choreography Le sacre du printemps.
