Many tourists in Ukraine include in their must see list Opera and Ballet House which here is really cool and cheap. However I recommend you not only traditional classic performances but as well modern one.
Rado Poklitaru is a fashion, modern choreographer. Many Ukrainian know Rado Poklitaru as extraordinary choreographer of “Everybody dance!” TV show. His life credo is” In your life you should make something that is easy for you. But make this job the best”. For his theater he takes young sometimes not professional classic dancers such as modern dancers. His main requirement is ability to show emotions and be artistic on the stage as well as be good dancer.
About 10 years Kyiv businessman Vladimir Filippov invited young choreographer to Kyiv with offering to establish Kyiv modern ballet. Since that time Rado Poclitaru created such great stagings as “The Long Christmas Dinner”. “Women in D minor”, “Giselle”, “Carmen.TV” and many others.
I visited three of his stagings. And I absolutely can guarantee you that you never get bored there.
