Bolshoi Ballet 2018-2019
This season presents the greatest classics for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet. Four classical ballets (La Sylphide, Don Quixote, La Bayadère and The sleeping Beauty) will be presented along with the beloved Christmas tale The Nutcracker and the jazzy ballet The Golden Age, that can be seen only at the Bolshoi. Carmen Suite-Petruska, Edward Clug’s new creation will close the season, with two very popular characters. The Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.
In the 1920’s, The Golden Age cabaret is a favorite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot,” but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka…BOOKING

Petruska: At Saint-Petersburg’s carnival, three puppets are playing the same role over and over: the unhappy lover Petrushka, the coquette and a Moor.
