– The topics of the events will focus on the beginnings of ballet in Poland. The presented shows and performances will refer both to the repertoire of court ballets staged in Poland and Europe from the 15th to 18th centuries, and to the establishment of the first professional ballet schools and dance groups in the Republic of Poland – says Romana Agnel, artistic director of the festival. – Organized in a hybrid formula, the festival assumes both staging performances on the Main Market Square and presenting short dance programs in the city space, which are also film sets – he adds.

In the performance, we will see, among other ballet programs, a reconstruction of a dance lesson, a student gala – a ballet performance, masters’ performances or a great court ball. Through the presentation of original choreographies from the first half of the 18th century, as well as the appropriate selection of music and dances, the performance shows what repertoire could be performed in the court theater, the so-called opera house, supervised by Izabela Branicka, the castellan of Krakow. On Sunday, however, also on the Main Square we will see a new production of the Cracovia Danza Ballet ๐™รช๐™ Bal, referring to garden games from the French Rococo era. The sophisticated dance images were inspired by the baroque gardens. The weekend performances, apart from the dancers of the Cracovia Danza Ballet, will also be attended by invited guests, including dance masters from Germany and France – ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ-๐—–๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—•รค๐—ฟ ๐—Ÿ๐—ฒ ๐—–๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ ๐—ฃ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ-๐—™๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ปรง๐—ผ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐——๐—ผ๐—น๐—นรฉ.
