About the performance

The story of childhood, adolescence and love of Daphnis and Chloé, inspired by one of the prettiest preserved ancient myths is brought by the author to the present era. The characters are the children of our times with all its benefits, though strangers at the same time. We follow their common path through the world of childhood, the challenges of the adolescence, successes and disenchantments of adulthood. The production by member of the youngest generation of choreographs is a dance probe into the mind of contemporary young adults and into their uneasy quest for finding their place in the society.

The première is held in collaboration with the Department of Dance of the Academy of Musical and Performing Arts within the framework of the opera and ballet night (together with the opera The Spanish Hour directed by Pavol Smolík). Maurice Ravel, as the lead representative of musical impressionism shall be the common denominator of the evening.

Running time: 2 hrs with one interval
