The Bolshoi Ballet 2017-2018

The 2017-2018 season presents the greatest classics restaged by today’s most celebrated choreographers, for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet. Three historical ballets reimagined by Alexei Ratmansky (le Corsaire, Romeo and Juliet, and The Flames of Paris) will be presented along with John Neumeier’s Lady of the Camellias and Jean-Christophe Maillot’s Taming of the Shrew. Three timeless classics of the Moscow stage will complete the season: Giselle, the Nutcracker and Coppélia. As classical as it may be, the Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.
