THE CZECH NATIONAL BALLET ON TOUR – SPAIN 2019
The Czech National Ballet is leaving for Spanish Andalusia today. Destination: Seville, production: La Byadère.
On the second Sunday of the Advent last year the lush classical ballet La Byadère was performed in the National Theatre in Prague. The house was full to the last seat and it was the last time the audience had the opportunity to see the production in the 2018/2019 season.
Prague will not see it any more this season but the beautiful fairy tale about Nikia, the temple dancer, and Solor, the noble prince, will come alive in Spain in January. Our dancers will travel to the south of the country and perform in the city of Seville in Andalusia. The favourite and successful Javier Torres version of La Byadère will be staged four times from January 9 to January 12 in the local Teatro de la Maestranza and accompanied by the Real Orquesta Sinfónica de Sevilla.
Spanish ballet lovers will get the chance to see three different casts of the main roles and will admire six Czech first soloists: Nikola Márová, Alina Nanu, Miho Ogimoto, Nikita Chetverikov, Giovanni Rotolo and Adam Zvonař and four soloists: Sophie Benoit, Magdaléna Matějková, Kristýna Němečková, and Aya Watanabe.
