The Polish National Ballet is heir to a tradition dating back to the 18th century, when King Stanisław August set up Poland’s first professional ballet company, known as the His Majesty’s National Dancers. Today, 250 years after the birth of Public Theatre in Poland, the Polish National Ballet performs productions of the highest quality, drawing from the classical repertoire, 20th century works, and new pieces, commissioned by the Ballet. The ballet of the Teatr Wielki ? Polish National Opera has toured extensively, visiting most countries in Europe, as well as the USA and Canada, Argentina and Brazil, Israel, China, and Taiwan.
