You made it happen – The Humpbacked Horse, an innovative ballet by Ekaterinburg-based Ural Opera Ballet, premiered at the beginning of July. This is a phenomenal collaboration between the theatre company and EK-Playaz, a legendary Ural rap band.
It would not be possible if it weren’t for the support of those who love ballet art. We developed the crowdfunding campaign’s website and mechanics. All the money was channeled to costumes and stage props production — as UOB found themselves crushed after the pandemic-entailed crisis.
Jaws, a popular local brewery, joined us and created a limited collection of The Humpbacked Horse branded beer. 28K bottles sold like hot cakes.
Voskhod visited the premiere performance and left the theatre deeply thrilled. Next time you’ll be able to see the ballet in autumn. Be sure not to miss it!
