 “When the music and dance create with accord… their magic captivates both the heart and the mind,” we read in Letters on Dance and Ballet by Jean-Georges Noverre, the 18th-century reformer of the art of dance and founder of European ballet theatre. It’s no wonder, then, that he is the patron of International Day of Dance, celebrated on his birthday on 29 April The occasion is marked by the Kraków Opera on 27 and 28 April during the ballet evening Révérence. We start with Invitation to Dance with Zofia Rudnicka’s choreography set to Fryderyk Chopin’s Waltz E flat major op. 18 No. 1. Dancers also present Emil Wesołowski’s arrangements to excerpts from Carl Orff’s stage cantata Carmina Burana, and the evening closes with a performance of Katarzyna Aleksander-Kmieć’s choreography to Maurice Ravel’s Bolero. Dancers include the ballet ensemble of the Kraków Opera as well as guests from St. Petersburg and Moscow, with soloists Julia Galambos, Gabriela Kubacka, Mizuki Kurosawa, Mariana Morfin-Sanchez, Malika Tokkozhina, Maciej Pluskowski, Dzmitry Prokharau and Yauheni Yatskevich.
