The Kyiv City Ballet has been offered a residency at Paris’s Châtelet Theatre. The troupe of 30 dancers were already on tour in France with “The Nutcracker” but found themselves stranded due to the war in Ukraine. They are putting on a special performance this Tuesday. We also hear from members of the Kyiv Grand Ballet, who are also in France and now face a highly uncertain future. 

Meanwhile, a charity concert is taking place this Tuesday evening in Paris in support of the Ukrainian people. Two of France’s big broadcasters are hosting the event called “Unite for Ukraine”, with proceeds going towards humanitarian efforts. Among the performers are Carla Bruni, Indochine, Jane Birkin and Angélique Kidjo.
