The Lady of the Camellias

On April 20th, 21st, 22nd 24th and 25th, 2018 I will be performing F. Chopin's music for "The Lady of the Camellias" ballet spectacle by John Neumeier at the National Opera in Warsaw, Poland.
I am very much looking forward to be part of this beautiful production of the Polish National Ballet.

This isn't the first time I have an opportunity to collaborate with the Polish National Ballet. The very first time it was "Fortepianissimo" choreographed by Lorca Massine. The second spectacle "Chopin The Romantic Artist" choreographed by Patrice Bart was the production taken abroad. At the invitation of Valery Gergiev, the Polish National Ballet presented this production twice at the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg as part of the Stars of the White Nights Music Festival. We also performed this spectacle at the SHOAC Centre in Shanghai, China.
In 2010 I was honoured to perform Chopin's music at the Wiener Opernball. This was another touching moment for me to collaborate with the Polish National Ballet and Wiener Staatsballett dancers during the presentation choreographed by Giorgio Madia. Watch it here.

"The Lady of the Camellias" will be presented later on during current and 2018/2019 season with four more spectacles coming already in June, 2018 (21, 22, 23, 24).

Stay tuned for future dates.
