Taipei, June 4 (CNA) The National Opera of Ukraine -- Kiev Ballet will perform for the first time in Taiwan at the National Theater in Taipei from Wednesday to Friday, the event organizer said Monday.

According to the Management of New Arts (MNA), the troupe will stage the full edition of two popular pieces in Taipei -- Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty.

"Local audiences will be able to fully relish the troupe's sophisticated stage props, costumes and settings during its first-ever performance in Taiwan," MNA said.

The two works have been presented to more than 14 million people around the world by Kiev Ballet, which has conquered the hearts of ballet lovers with its astonishing skills, it said.

Art Director Aniko Rekhviashvili said they hope to present the two works with perfection to Taiwanese audiences and have transported the most beautiful stage scenery and props to Taiwan to that end.

The group's 72 members will cooperate with Taiwan's National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Chief Conductor Mykola Diadiura.
