Velvet Ballet Gala


Truth and love must prevail over lies and hatred!

The Czech National Ballet will present a Gala celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Velvet Revolution in 1989. It is, above all, a feast of freedom and love.

“The Czech National Ballet is looking forward to a very special gala evening, especially to unique choreographies that have never been shown to the audience before. Are you curious?”
Filip Barankiewicz, the artistic director of The Czech National Ballet

Various ballet personalities connected to the National Theatre, an important symbol of Czech culture, will present themselves. The evening will bring new choreographies created especially for this occasion but also already existing Czech and foreign ballet works. Great stars, passion for dance rooted in breathtaking physicality, true emotions, brilliant technique, “velvet elegance”, magic and energy – an unforgettable artistic experience for everyone!

On November 16, a day before the great anniversary, in the Estates Theatre.
