There have been numerous examples in history where ballets were inspired and created for prominent dancers. “Cleopatra” by world renowned choreographer Vasily Medvedev is a spectacular work which in many aspects goes beyond the frames of classical ballet. Inspired by the Macedonian primadona Aleksandra Mijalkova, “Cleopatra” is a work about the last queen of Egypt, the successor of Alexandar the Great, the legendary conqueror of hearts, who has for centuries inspired poets, composers, artists and directors. “Cleopatra” represents a reflection of Mijalkova’s individual artistic “charge”, a role that marks a new page in the history of Macedonian ballet art, a history that speaks of her numerous successes, colorful and impressive performances and emotional and spiritual commitment to the audience. The Macedonian audience has an unique opportunity to see a ballet which has not yet been staged in any theatre of the world, be delighted by the artistry and talent of Aleksandra Mijalkova and spend a memorable evening in the magic world of the Roman Empire and the dance wonders of Ancient Egypt.
