The Kiev Ballet or Kiev Modern Ballet was founded in 2006 by multi-award winning choreographer Radu Poklitaru. The company is internationally appreciated for its original, surprising and distinctly modern choreographies made with a sense of humor, great dancers and compelling theatricality. Young and old everywhere love this young company, as evidenced by standing ovations and critical acclaim. Poklitaru is one of the greatest modern choreographers outside Western Europe who shows that, in addition to perfect classics, there is also high-quality modern dance of international class in cities such as Kiev.

Radu Poklitaru’s Carmen

New ballet interpretation of a classic love drama about a passionate, free-spirited and flirtatious gypsy girl from a cigar factory in Seville. Not all men in Seville are charmed by her fluctuating affections. Jealous officer Don Jose can't contain himself when he sees his love at the side of a toreador. Beautiful duets, group dances and virtuoso solos in an extremely surprising and musical choreography. A fascinating dance performance for the whole family to Bizet's enchanting music.

The still young Kiev Ballet visits our country every year for enthusiastic, well-filled halls. “The rousing energy of the group is heart-conquering,” wrote de Volkskrant.
