GISELLE – Sun 11 October
This gem of Romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in the classical repertoire, touching upon the great Romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy, and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.
THE LADY OF THE CAMELLIAS – Sun 6 December
The Bolshoi breathes new life into John Neumeier‘s tragic masterpiece, inspired by Alexandre Dumas‘ novel and accompanied by Chopin‘s exquisite score. This production assumes a new emotional and dramatic texture that only the Bolshoi’s dancers can deliver. “Neumeier’s character-rich ballet has found a company that is equal to its challenges.” – Financial Times.
THE TAMING OF THE SHREW – Sun 24 January
French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare‘s comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, non-stop dance unlike any other, revealing the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way. This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else!
DON QUIXOTE – Sun 10 April
The Bolshoi’s panache and excellence are combined in Fadeyechev’s critically acclaimed staging of this exhilarating performance with Leon Minkus’ famous score. Featuring brand new sets and costumes to accompany this colourful and technically challenging production, Don Quixote is quintessential Bolshoi, abounding with life and not to be missed!
