Established in 1962, Korean National Ballet has been leading ballet in Korea through its wide repertories. It has successfully spread an incredible reputation worldwide, and is proactively reaching out to the public and putting on more regional performances.
Korean National Ballet prepared Spartacus, which is based on the true story of the Roman Empire. Yuri Grigorovich’s special version of Spartacus was created in ‘Bolshoi’ in 1968, where Pas de Deux of Phrygia and Spartacus were presented through spectacular movements of the male group dancers. This year, his production of Spartacus reached its 50th birthday.
Spartacus is brought to Hong Kong as a special event of Festive Korea, annual cultural programme now running its 8th year. The festival is organized by the Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong in collaboration with the Consulate General, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea and the Home Affairs Bureau of the Government of Hong Kong SAR.
