March 15, 2018

If your child LOVES Ballet then this might be an exciting and interesting watch. These performances will be screened live, so it'll be as if they're right there in the auditorium in Moscow.

 

Upcoming local screenings of the Bolshoi Ballet:

 

GISELLE (Live from Moscow)

8 APRIL

On screen on 8 April 2018 is classic romantic ballet Giselle choreographed by Yuri Grigorovich. When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies of a broken heart in his arms. While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a ven

geful spirit meant to make unfaithful men dance until death. Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova personifies the title role alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht, it also stars Ekaterina Shipulina (Myrtha), Denis Savin (Hans) and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet. With music by Adolphe Adam this chilling, yet luminous ballet has continued to captivate audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi.

 

 

COPPÉLIA (Live from Moscow)

10 JUNE

The final screening is of Coppélia on 10 June. The Bolshoi’s unique version of this ebullient comedy by Sergei Vikharev exhibits a fascinating reconstruction of the original 19th century choreography, featuring feisty heroine Swanhilda, her boyish fiancee Franz with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker.  Swanhilda notices her fiancee Franz is infatuated with the beautiful Coppélia who sits reading on her balcony each day. Nearly breaking up the two sweethearts, Coppelia is not what she seems and Swanhilda decides to teach Franz a lesson. The company’s stunning Corps de Ballet shines in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its Principal dancers abound in youthful energy and irresistible humour in this effervescent production, live from Moscow.
