NEWSLETTER: White Stork and Kyiv City Ballet

Updated: Oct 2

Dear Friends and Colleagues,


We have some exciting news! We’re honored to announce that we have been named as the beneficiary charity for the Kyiv City Ballet’s North American Tour. Our work remains vital, and the support of this incredible ballet company will aid our continued fight to provide meaningful on-the-ground support where it is needed most.

Ukraine Kiev City Ballet | Operation White Stork

Purchase your tickets online!


This is the Kviv City Ballet’s first tour in the United States. Their performances are deeply entwined with the long artistic history of Ukraine. This spring, the company performed in France to help raise funds for Ukrainian civilians following the Russian invasion. The U.S. tour features several performances of “Swan Lake” alongside their repertory program. Beginning September 16th, the tour will have stops at cities throughout the United States.


Special thanks to the Polsky Foundation for their support for the Kyiv City Ballet and Operation White Stork.
