Kyiv National Ballet to perform in Barcelona from July 6 to 17
Two euro per ticket will be donated to Red Cross to help welcome Ukrainian refugees
Kyiv National Ballet will perform in Barcelona from July 6 to July 17 as part of its European tour that will see the artistic group visit countries such as Italy, Spain and Portugal.
They will perform in Teatre Tívoli theater, at the heart of the Catalan capital, from Wednesday to Sunday with tickets ranging between €25 and €46.
Indeed, two euro from every ticket for their interpretation will be sent to Ukrainian refugees through Red Cross.
Kyiv Ballet will perform Swan Lake with the artistic direction of the Argentinian dancer Ana Sophia Scheller, who will act as the show's principal dancer in some interpretations. She is considered one of the world's top ballet dancers, since she has performed as solo artist in New York City Ballet, San Francisco Ballet or Kyiv's Opera Theater.
Teatre Tívoli will host performances from Wednesdays to Fridays at 8pm, on Saturdays at 5.30pm and on Sundays at 6pm.
Red Cross in Catalonia has been a key organization to welcome 5,500 people in 34 Catalan municipalities ever since Russia began its invasion on Ukraine on February 24.
Ever since the conflict in Eastern Europe broke out, 20,000 refugees have arrived in Catalonia, including 7,000 children, according to the Catalan foreign affairs minister, Victòria Alsina, on Friday in Sant Gregori, near Girona.
