The Slovak National Folklore Ballet Lú?nica, famous from its many successful international tours, known as ?The Rolling Stones of Folklore?, is proudly presenting its premiere ?Beautiful and Young - Australia Tour 2010?.

?nica, inspired by national

traditions, will ?whip? the audience into a frenzy. It?s a creation of mastery

and fantasy combined with a unique dance and music show based on Slovak folklore which has triumphed around the world for more than 60 years.

Skilful young dancers accompanied by the professional

orchestra, dressed in many different colorful handmade 

costumes with marvelous

embroidery, present dynamic and poetic dances, virtuoso folk tunes and songs

from different regions of Slovakia.

?I have never seen such beauty and

richness of traditional national culture, like the one in Slovakia, in any of

the numerous countries I have visited throughout my career,? said Dominik Hrbatý, the famous Slovak tennis player, two times Perth Hopman Cup winner and two times Australian Open singles quarter-finalist.

The ballet includes; the highest level of professional artistic performance, world unique instruments ?Cimbal?

and ?Fujara? under the UN Heritage; specially selected young girls, some of whom contested Miss Slovakia, the talent of the soccer nation (conqueror of Italy at FIFA World Cup), tennis nation (Fed Cup winner, Davis Cup finalist) and ice-hockey nation (World Champion).

There is a hidden power that

catches your eye and resonates with senses. The only Folklore Ballet ever

allowed to perform at The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden London which sold out on three consecutive nights!


Enjoy ?Beautiful and Young ? Australia Tour 2010?, straight from the heart of Europe, an original world class experience not to be missed.
