Ballettissimo — Taste It!


The Czech National Ballet promises to serve a tasty evening of dance by European choreographers at Ballettissimo.

The National Theatre Ballet presents Ballettissimo, its second premiere of the season, Mar 5 and 6.

Ballettissimo is designed to replace Americana III, three pieces by American choreographers which enjoyed a successful run.

This new production looks at how to apply conventional ballet techniques of today, in both traditional and very non-conforming, ultramodern senses of the word, according to the dance company.

The performance begins with Symphony No. 1 in D Major, by Gustav Mahler, choreographed by the artistic director of the National Theatre Ballet, Petr Zuska. Next comes a new opus by Italian choreographer Jacopo Godani, titled Reflections on the Fate of Human Forms.

The evening concludes with work by German choreographer Uwe Scholz’s Symphony No. 7 in A Major, by Beethoven.
