Tryzub Dancers at the CPO - September 14, 2013

Collaborations of the finest artistic talents take the stage again in Calgary this September! The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra has a sensational program of Gliere, Smetana, Prokofiev, Mussorgsky and of course a Hopak to salute the music and culture of Ukraine. And Calgary's Tryzub Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is exuberantly sharing the color, enthusiasm, and Canada's favorite dance form - the Ukranian Hopak! 

Hopak! A Ukrainian Spectacular is part of the Destination Series of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra's offerings in fall of 2013. Put Saturday, Septmber 14, 2013 at 8 PM on the calendar!

It seems a lot of Canadians have enjoyed the traditional Hopak of Ukrainian dance ensembles across the prairies and beyond.  But did you know that recently there has been an upsurgence in recognition that the powerful Hopak contains remnants of an ancient Cossack martial art?  Powerful, contained in a public dance form, Tryzub's Hopak is a celebration of potential, kinetic energy and oh, so fun to watch!

Here you can enjoy an excerpt from a famous movie about Ukraine's Virsky Ukrainian Dance company, filmed in 1975 during Pavlo Virsky's.
