21st Century Ballet

Wednesday was another night to get dressed up and go out. Claudia’s parents and sister are down from Berlin, so I went out with them, plus Helena and Fero, to the ballet.

Janáčkovo divadlo put on a modern ballet called "Balet 21 Století". The performance was amazing!!
This ballet is in 3 acts with contemporary cheoreography set to the music of Antonín Dvořák, Bohuslav Martinů, and Leoš Janáček.

The ballet builds on the work of Polish artist Jack Barocco Przybylowicze to the music of Bach with solo cello performances. The evening ends with "Strawberry Mouth" by German choreographer Mario Schroeder.

After the ballet we went across the street for drinks and Rob joined us there. Thanks to Helena's many connections we even got to meet a few of the principle dancers. Pictures are already posted on Flickr.
