* Divine Dancers is an exclucive dance event with some of the leading ballet stars of our time including Charles Jude, Daniil Simkin and the exceptional young Russian dancer Polina Semyonova (acclaimed principal soloist of the Berlin State Ballet).
* Recorded at the sumptuous ambience of the Prague State Opera, the event, combined classical ballet pieces with modern and contemporary choreography.
* The Dancers present their favorite classical and modern pieces from choreographers like George Balanchine, Marius Petipa, Jose Limón, Kenneth MacMillan up to John Neumeier.
* Including music by Tchaikovsky, Glazunov, Purcell, Gershwin, Weill and Jacques Brel.
* One highlight of the gala is The Moor’s Pavane (1949), music by Henry Purcell, which lasts a good 20 minutes: it is the most important and also the most successful ballet by Jose Limón. This expressive one-act ballet is one of the best known works of American modern dance.
