"Love theme is only one of the layers in this remarcable production.

Here we talk about an epic work where music indicates the pathos and generalisation of XXth century in socio-historical plan. The ballet sounds quite revolutionary and large-scaled. Like a collage of echoes of many social concussions that have caused huge displacements in the past. Migrations, emigrations, evictions, escapes and other transpositions of man in time and space. A journey of the human spirit in search of happiness and love.

"DELIGHT AND COLLAPSE OF LOVE"  is deep and serious  in its dramaturgy.It concerns our parting with the past and our pursuit of harmony and beauty. The ballet shapes a profound existential and metaphysical portrait of all survivors of the revolutions and social jolts of the last century - generations who have experienced communism, fascism and horror of totalitarian systems in general..."

 Zafer Galibov, culturologist and photographer - text for the opening of the photo exhibition, dedicated to the project, constituting documentary photos of its rehearsal process. Cinema House-Sofia, 10.2013.
