This once-in-a-lifetime performance, Nadiya Ukraine, by the world-renowned National Ballet of Ukraine from the Taras Shevchenko National Opera House features excerpts from some of the world’s greatest ballets such as “Le Corsaire”, and “Don Quixote”, while highlighting Ukrainian culture through traditional dance.
The word Nadiya in Ukrainian means “hope,” uniting these two great nations while affirming the power of art and beauty over tyranny and destruction. This tour has the endorsement of the Ukrainian government, bringing the rich culture and history of Ukraine to Toronto. This tour also supports Ukrainians in need by providing audiences the opportunity to help through the First Lady’s Olena Zelenska Foundation as well as additional beneficiaries providing critical human services in Ukraine.
The First Lady of Ukraine, Olena Zelenska, will address audiences prior to the intermission via video and speak to the current humanitarian situation on the ground, along with specific projects the funds raised will support. Every audience member will be given an opportunity to make a tax-deductible contribution based on what they deem appropriate.

Enjoy a pre-performance reception with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Attendees will meet dancers from the National Ballet of Ukraine and hear directly from diplomatic leaders about the situation on the ground in Ukraine. Hosted in the Ed & Anne Mirvish Suite (stair access only). Available only as an add-on with a show ticket.
Purchasing a ticket to this world-class performance supports these amazing artists and tour costs. The producers of the tour sought to keep tickets accessible to all Canadians, which is why ticket prices are not inflated to force a contribution percentage. The purchase of a ticket is not a tax-deductible contribution.
