The National Ballet of Ukraine

This once-in-a-lifetime performance, Nadiya Ukraine, by the world-renowned National Ballet of Ukraine from the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House features excerpts from some of the world’s greatest ballets such as Le Corsaire and Don Quixote, while highlighting Ukrainian culture through traditional dance.

The National Ballet of Ukraine, comprised of 150 dancers, 23 of whom will be part of the Canadian tour, is considered one of the world’s top-ranked ballet companies. Before the outbreak of war in February 2022, the company staged 16 productions a month at the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House in Kyiv, Ukraine. Today, the number of productions depends on the circumstances of the conflict. This company has danced all over the world and is responsible for keeping the national and classical repertoire standards for the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House.

The word Nadiya in Ukrainian means “hope,” uniting these two great nations while affirming the power of art and beauty over tyranny and destruction. This tour has the endorsement of the Ukrainian government, bringing the rich culture and history of Ukraine to the city of Montreal. This tour also supports Ukrainians in need by providing audiences the opportunity to help through the First Lady’s Olena Zelenska Foundation as well as additional beneficiaries providing critical human services in Ukraine.

The First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, will address audiences prior to the intermission via video and speak to the current humanitarian situation on the ground, along with specific projects the funds raised will support. Every audience member will be given an opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution based on what they deem appropriate.

Purchasing a ticket to this world-class performance supports these amazing artists and tour costs. The producers of the tour sought to keep tickets accessible to all Canadians, which is why ticket prices are not inflated to force a contribution percentage. The purchase of a ticket is not a tax-deductible contribution.
