Theatre (September – October)

Burning Love
The Witch Trial (IT, play)
1 October at 19.00
International Centre of Culture and Arts (Nebesnoi Sotni 1)
Starring well-known Italian actors Ornella Muti and Michele Placido, this play tells the true story of a darker time when any woman’s attempt to prove her right to love and be loved led to grave consequences. In 1428, Matteuccia di Francesco, an alleged nun, was put on trial in the medieval city of Todi. The tribunal, headed by the Inquisitor, found her guilty of practising sorcery and condemned her to be burned at the stake. Her case is one of Europe’s earliest complete accounts of witchcraft to survive until now. The performance is presented in its original language with simultaneous interpretation.

Music and Movement
Paquita and Scheherazade (two one-act ballets)
7 October at 19.00
National Opera of Ukraine (Volodymyrska 50)
The new season promises to be eventful and entertaining for theatregoers. Katja Khaniukova, a highly acclaimed Kyiv-born soloist of the English National Ballet, is equally brilliant at dancing classical and contemporary performances staged by European and American choreographers. She is coming to her native town to treat us to a sophisticated night filled with music and movement – Petipa’s Paquita and Fokin’s Scheherazade. François Alu, a well-known French first soloist from the Paris Opera Ballet, is another star to shine in the show.

Who Lives Forever
The Queen Symphony
30 September at 19.00
National Philharmonic of Ukraine (Volodymyrskiy Descent 2)
One of the greatest vocalists in rock history, Freddie Mercury is widely known for his ostentatious outfits, eccentric manner, incredible artistry and powerful tenor. He remains one of the most recognisable showmen in the world. To pay tribute to Queen and its charismatic frontman, Ukraine’s National Philharmonic invites you to savour hits like Bohemian Rhapsody, Innuendo, and Barcelona performed by the National Academic Symphonic Band and the Khreshchatyk Academic Chamber Choir. The concert includes The Queen Symphony composed by British born Tolga Kashif and based on the everlasting melodies by the legendary group.

Hidden in Darkness
Blindness (UA, play, site specific)
17, 18 September at 20.00
Port Creative Hub (Naberezhno Khreshchatytska 10A)
A joint project of the independent Misanthrope Theatre and Port Creative Hub, Blindness represents a new format for Ukraine – a ‘site specific’ genre. Based on the novel by José Saramago, the winner of the 1998 Nobel Prize in Literature, the performance will have audiences fully concentrating on their perception. Immersed in darkness, both actors and viewers – or rather non-viewers – will share the experience of taking in the action beyond the stage and making it a reality using their imagination. It promises to be tough, uncomfortable, and provocative. NB: no mobile phones allowed.
