fedraTIRANA, June 1 – Two of Albania’s best ballet dancers, husband and wife Gerd and Enada Vaso, are celebrating marking two decades of performances at the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet with the premiere of Fedra, a ballet performance based on a play by ancient Rome philosopher and dramatist Seneca.

The most famous couple on the Albanian ballet stage is coming on this 20th anniversary as producers and lead performers in cooperation with Italy’s “Balletto del Sud” dance company.

“This is a powerful piece re-brought in the early 20th century with stage and costume design which preserves from the mythology the drama, the character, the concept of behaviour in a couple, the passion, the transgression and the madness resulting from the predetermined fate of which characters have no escape,” the couple says.

“This work contains a very powerful drama and requires great stage experience as a dancer. The great wish by Italian choreographer Fredy Franzuti pushed us to be protagonists by becoming the show’s producers,” says Enada.

The prima ballerina was only 18 when she performed her first role in the Giselle ballet.

The ballet is scheduled to premiere this weekend on June 5 and 6 at the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet in Tirana.
