Mackay and Whitsunday Life
Prepare to be amazed by the performance of the year, with the Grand Kyiv Ballet of Ukraine taking over the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre this June.
This internationally touring performance will keep audiences hooked, encompassing two magical stories that will be sure to keep audiences enraptured in the touching choreography and fantastic cinematography.
The first act follows the Ukrainian story, Forest Song, and reflects Ukrainian culture and heritage. Forest Song follows Lukash, a human man, and a mystical creature, named Mavka. Mavka wishes for peace and tranquillity in her world, drawing parallels to Ukraine and its political unease.
The second act is Don Quixote, an energetic Spanish ballet following the romance of a courageous young man and his search for love.
Both acts include extravagant and lavish choreography and costuming, with intimately and honestly intricate songs, duets, and breathtaking music.
The Grand Kyiv Ballet of Ukraine was formed by National Opera of Ukraine dancer Alexander Stoyanov in 2014 and has been touring the globe brining the Ukrainian ballet to the likes of New Zealand, China, America, and South America.
