This ballet by Krzysztof Pastor is a result of cooperation of the Polish National Ballet and Het Nationale Ballet in Amsterdam. It was created in 2014 and will be performed by our national group during the current season. The multifaceted masterpiece by Shakespeare serves as Pastor’s source of inspiration. The choreographer uses the motifs and characters from the drama, but most importantly strives to expose the magic hidden in the text.
