The ballet THE FEAST OF LOVE is inspired by the novel CAPSELLA BURSA PASTORIS by Teodora Sujic which, after long choreographic research, emerged as an inevitable and eternal love poem. Spring, love, two young people, the topic is of infinite possibilities.
It is in the nature of every human being to love, suffer and seek his or her own way. When the past is not forgotten, when the past becomes a memory, whatever happened gets its full value. Anger becomes forgiveness, suffering becomes quiet longing, fondness becomes gratitude, and love becomes friendship.
The production of this ballet is fully financed by the City of Belgrade and this is the first time that the City of Belgrade finances production of a performance on the stage of Madlenianum.
