The ballet "Fates"

The idea was created by the general director of Odessa National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet, Honoured Culture Worker of Ukraine Nadezhda Babich.

The ballet "Fates" is the author's project of Odessa Opera House, it is an example of the unique experience of creating a performance that can be called by all means a documentary or publicistic ballet - a new genre in contemporary ballet art and truly national work, born by the Ukrainian composer, the Ukrainian choreographer and performed by the Ukrainian artists.

As for the content of the ballet, the author of the libretto and choreographer Sergey Kon answered :  "I am sure that there is nobody in the world, who at least once in the life wondered what is fate? Is this anything that is destined, predetermined from birth or is it a sequence of everyday events from which we have to choose? Is this inevitability of fate, doom or do we still have the freedom of choice? The ballet "Fortunes" does not give a definite answer to these questions. It is rather a reflection on the theme of human lives, meetings and losses. A peculiarity of the ballet storyline is that these stories are based on real events. These are stories of the lives of real people - our contemporaries, whose house Fate knocked at. And there is no advice, no despair but there is a search for solution. So, the question remains open –  can we influence upon our own destiny? ".

Author's choreography is based on modern polystylistic manner using a variety of dance techniques and elements of pantomime.

The premiere of the ballet was held in February 2017 and opened a new page in the history of modern Ukrainian ballet.
