In the darkness of primordial chaos angels are flying among the clouds waiting for God. Devil is loafing about. The Creator appears.
Eden has been created but it is still uninhabited. God creates man in His image and likeness.
Adam is innocent and helpless like a child. Devil tries to entrap him in Hell but God stands up for His creature. There is a struggle between God and Devil and God is victorious.
Adam is bored. Devil offers him a pretty Devil Lady but God saves the man from the temptation. Adam complains of loneliness and God creates a friend for him. Eve drives away his boredom. They are playing and enjoying themselves. But Devil puts Adam and Eve on the new trials because he wants to have power over the people entrapping them with temptations.
Adam and Eve embrace each other and the unknown feeling of excitement seize them. They fall in love.
Devil follows Adam and Eve wishing to draw them in Hell. He causes a great disaster that destroys every living thing on the Earth. Mankind is threatened with death. But Adam and Eve gather their last strength and save the humankind by sacrificing their lives. Evil retreats. Earth awakes and flourishes. Mankind strides confidently into the future.
The ballet “The Creation of the World” created by Andrii Petrov is a cheerful choreographic performance. The story tells us how God created the Earth, and how bored Devil prevented Him; how Adam and Eve were created and how they fell in love with each other and left the Paradise; how Devil and the Devil Lady raised a storm that they could not stop, and perished in its eye; how Adam and Eve survived the global cataclysm and started a large population of the Earth.
