Midsummer Night

Midsummer Night was a special moment of spring and summer solstice, a feast of four elements: water, fire, darkness and light, taking place on St. John’s Eve. In order to make this great Slavic tradition closer, about 30 dancers of the Folk Song and Dance Ensemble „Częstochowa” perform a show containing customs connected with the magic Midsummer Night.

Jumping over a fire, dancing around the fireplace with a torch, letting go of wreaths on the water are just few of the attractions you will be able to admire during the show. A unique atmosphere of mysteriousness during an evening concert, accompanied by selected music pieces, has a form of a Slavic love feast and may be a great alternative for American Valentine’s Day.

Midsummer Night is a full-length ceremonial performance, prepared by Jarosław Świątek, who is the ballet manager of the Polish National Song and Dance Ensemble “Sląsk” and the artistic manager and choreographer of Ensemble “Częstochowa”.

Duration: about 40 minutes
