Forest Song & Don Quixote at QPAC

Forest Song & Don Quixote at QPAC

By popular demand, The Grand Kyiv Ballet of Ukraine will return to Australia. They will present again their double bill of Forest Song & Don Quixote. The audience response to their performances in 2023 was amazing with standing ovations following every performance.

Act One will feature the Ukrainian showpiece, Forest Song. This legendary ballet, which for over 75 years remains the pride of Ukraine, is a magical love story, full of mysticism alongside the conflict between the human world and nature. It tells a tale of love and the fearless and brave Mavka, who longs for peace in her world, just as Ukraine longs for peace in her country today. Forest Song is performed for the first time ever in Australia.

Act Two will showcase Don Quixote. This flamboyant and festive Spanish ballet is a much-loved romantic comedy. It tells the story of a courageous but troubled man’s quest for love. Gypsies, bullfighters, lavish costumes, breathtaking dancers and an inspiring music score ensures that Don Quixote is a not-to-be-missed experience.

This double-feature performance takes place 6-7 May in QPAC’s Concert Hall. Tickets begin at $95.05 and can be purchased here.

Two sensational performances. One magnificent evening of ballet!
