One of the most famous dance ensembles in the world, the Georgian National Ballet Sukhishvili, returns to Lisinski!

After the sold-out performance in May 2023, the Georgian National Ballet will once again bring the Zagreb audience a spectacular performance accompanied by an orchestra with unique instruments whose sounds tell the musical history and tradition of authentic Georgian dance for more than 75 years. With their amazing skills on stage and exciting choreographies that defy gravity, they have earned names such as "flying Georgians", "eighth wonder of the world", "hurricane on stage", "miracle from Georgia", "poetry in motion", "best dancers in the world". etc., and several times they were declared "the best show on Broadway".

Sukhishvili was founded in 1945 and quickly gained a reputation that spread around the world. In over 75 years of existence, they have performed in more than 100 countries on all continents, on the most famous and largest stages in London, New York, Paris and Milan. On more than 300 regional and world tours with around 20,000 performances, they delighted over 90 million people and positioned Georgian dance on the world map. The ballet ensemble always performs accompanied by its own orchestra composed of musicians who have been trained to play traditional Georgian musical instruments for generations.

The complex and demanding choreography combines the perfectly synchronized movements of the troupe with the amazing technical skill of the individual performers: energetic male dancers deftly fly through the air clashing with swords and daggers, competing in the dynamics of movement and the height of the jump to win the favor of elegant female dancers who float gracefully across the stage with minute steps. The trademark of the Sukhishvili ensemble is the "toe dance", a demanding choreographic movement that is learned from the age of 5 and constantly perfected throughout life. The Georgian National Ballet is a unique phenomenon that everyone should see at least once in their life!
