In February last year, the celebrated Kyiv City Ballet left Ukraine’s capital for a much anticipated tour of France. Just a day later Russia invaded, leaving the company stranded and unable to return home. Over a year on, the war still rages and these exceptional dancers remain in exile. But with extraordinary resilience, the company has gone from strength to strength, training daily, devising new programmes, reprising classic works and thrilling those able to see them.
We are privileged to be welcoming this incredible group of artists to Mayflower Theatre for an amazing performance on their first ever tour of the UK. A varied programme of excerpts from some of their favourite pieces, this promises to be a unique occasion and a chance to show your support for the people of Ukraine.
We are offering tickets to refugee families through local Ukrainian organisations. If you would like to donate a seat to a refugee family, there is an option to gift any seat in the auditorium when booking your own seat. We will organise these for the families to give them an inspiring experience.
