THE BOLSHOI BALLET LIVE FROM MOSCOW

The greatest ballet company in the world offers a spectacular new 2014/15 season on the big screen featuring 5 magnificent classics including The Nutcracker and Swan Lake and 2 unrealeased ballets, The Legend of Love and Ivan the Terrible. Distributed by BY Experience, the series is presented in North America in association with the Metropolitan Opera. Audiences across the globe will be able to enjoy these outstanding performances with the Bolshoi principals, soloists, and corps de ballet, in cinemas only.

THE NUTCRACKER - SUNDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2014

On Christmas Eve, Marie’s godfather, Drosselmeyer, gives her a strange toy: a wooden nutcracker carved in the shape of a little man. At midnight, when the celebrations are over, all the toys magically come to life. The nutcracker grows to human size and takes charge of the tin soldiers, flying to the rescue of Marie, who is threatened by the Mouse King and his mouse army.

Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story, The Nutcracker is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, and enchanting sets and costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil.

This choreographic version, created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich, is full of romanticism and philosophical reflections on ideal love. Masterfully interpreted by the Bolshoi dancers, it will enchant the whole family for the festive season, proving that one is never too young or too old to be swept away by The Nutcracker.

SWAN LAKE - SUNDAY, JANUARY 25, 2015

Running time 2hr, 40
Music Piotr Tchaikovsky
Libretto Yuri Grigorovich
Choreography Yuri Grigorovich
Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

At the palace, the royal family and their guests are gathered for Prince Siegfried’s birthday celebrations. In a majestic ceremony, Siegfried is made a knight; young girls try to attract his attention, as he must choose a wife during the ball. Overcome by the sudden awareness of his future responsibilities, he escapes into the night and meets a strange flock of swans by a magical lake.

White swan by day, human by night, the beautiful Odette awaits an oath of true love to break the curse. The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony.

With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet. This universal and enchanting masterpiece of love, deception and drama is a must.

ROMEO & JULIET - SUNDAY, MARCH 8, 2015 AT 1PM

Running time 2hr, 15

Music Sergei Prokofiev
Libretto Sergei Prokofiev, Sergei Radlov and Adrian Piotrovsky
Choreography Yuri Grigorovich

Cast Alexander Volchkov (Romeo), Anna Nikulina (Juliet)

In Verona, the rivalry between the Capulets and the Montagues brings bloodshed to the city. When the Capulets organise a masked ball in honour of their daughter Juliet, Romeo Montague and his friend Mercutio attend incognito because of the hatred that tears the two houses apart. Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love, and are distraught when they realise they belong to rival families.

William Shakespeare’s timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. With its famous melodies, rhythmic variety and universal theme, this story of impossible love remains an all-time favourite, and is one of the world’s most popular ballets.

Stellar performances by Alexander Volchkov and Anna Nikulina illuminate this masterpiece, making the immortal tale of the lovers of Verona an unforgettable experience.

(Ballet recorded live on May 12th, 2013)
