Director and choreographer The Storm Alena Pešková succeeded in her intention. She was able to present Ostrovsky's demanding work in a well-chosen length and dramatic integrity, with individual scenes appearing compact, clear and distinct. In addition to the dancers of the Liberec company, she cast a guest ballerina in the lead role of Katerina Ivona Jelicova (soloist of the National Theatre Ballet Brno), with whom she had previously collaborated on Marisha, for which Jeličová won the Thalia Award in 2009.
