Theatre (May – June)

15 May 2018

Dreams That Last For Centuries
Sleeping Beauty (UA, premiere, modern ballet)
23 May at 19.00
Ivan Franko Ukrainian Drama Theatre (Ivana Franka 3)
Enjoy another audacious take on a classic tale staged by Kyiv Modern Ballet. Sleeping Beauty, a joint Ukrainian-Swiss project, will add to their repertoire of Swan Lake and Nutcracker. Both Tchaikovsky’s music and the earlier version of the story penned by Neapolitan Giambattista Basile in 1634 inspired charismatic choreographer Radu Poklitaru to create something outstanding. A smooth blend of reality and magic unravels an inspiring legend to remind spectators of the true values of life. Of course, the plot is slightly changed – a young king finds his sleeping sweetheart not in 100 years, but in 800 years. You’ll have to get a ticket to find out the rest.
Tickets: 90-1 200 UAH

Leading Ladies (UA, play)

House of Officers (M Hrushevskoho 30/1)
What does it take for a man to pretend to be a woman? Is it enough to learn how to strut in high heels, apply makeup, or wear a women’s dress? This is what two hapless Shakespearean actors Leo and Jack have to check out. Desperate for money, they decide to pass themselves off as nieces of an old millionairess who have come into an inheritance. However, it is not that easy to nab the jackpot as there are too many rivals contending for the big bucks. Faced with numerous challenges on their path, the main protagonists plot every step of their risky journey until love accidentally strikes and thwarts all their plans.
