Performance is conceived by the famous ballet artists, the brothers Jiři and Oto Bubeniček, who completed their careers with the John Neumeier’s Hamburg Ballet and the Semperopera Ballet, respectively, and have been since authoring successful productions on reputable dance stages around the world.
Performance is staged on the music by Dmitri Shostakovich, a famous Russian composer and pianist, and a great figure of the music world of the 20th century. The composer, who marked the period in music, following that of Prokofiev and Stravinsky, is known for his subtle amalgamation of music styles (Neoclassical and Post-Romantic). His magnificent music that encouraged the mankind to meditate on the questions of humanism is complemented by some other, equally exciting music pieces, conceived by such extraordinary composers as Rachmaninov, Myaskovsky, Vasks and Schnitke. All this resulted into a fusion of music, which is full of sharp contrasts and grotesque.
