I am of the opinion, that, like Shakespeare, Tchaikovsky belongs to all mankind. Ballet is a universal language. It does not feel boundaries, says Alexander Stoyanov, founder and artistic director of the Kiev Grand Ballet. Since 2014, Kiev Grand Ballet has delighted audiences in the USA, Canada, Australia, all over Europe and Scandinavia. Most of the dancers are Ukrainians, only some of the dancers come Japan, USA, Italy and Spain. In Finland, the Kiev Grand Ballet was last seen in early 2024.
