The first and most frequently performed Slovenian ballet Možiček is on stage again this time in a contemporay version.


Overture RESTART by choreographer Gjergj Prevazi, which is an intertwining of classical and modern dance expression on three of Ipavec's compositions (Scherzo, Triglavska koračnica, Ave Maria), introduces us to the world of  Možiček. In a warm, homey, comic, almost archetypal love affair between young lovers, with the thought that a happy ending is not necessarily a wedding celebration. In Ipavec's Možiček, this time choreographed by Aleksandar Ilić, where we remain faithful to his musical proposals, we preserve love as the central motif, but we expand it into many possible expressions.
