AT A CINEMA NEAR YOU
The 2019 Bolshoi Ballet in cinema season showcases some of ballet’s greatest classical works performed by the world’s finest dancers creating a unique cinematic experience.
Yuri Gregorovich’s celebration of the 1920’s The Golden Age can be seen on 7 May 2019. A young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to The Golden Age cabaret, a favorite nightly haunt and realises that not only is she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot”, but also the love interest of local gangster Yashka. It stars Nina Kaptsova (Rita), Ruslan Skvortsov (Boris), Mikhail Lobukhin (Yashka) and Ekaterina Krysanova (Lyuska). With its jazzy score by Shostakovich and beautiful tangos, The Golden Age is a refreshing and colourful dive into the roaring 20’s.
The final screening is a double bill of Carmen Suite/Petrushka live from Moscow on 19 May 2019. Carmen Suite is a passionate one act ballet by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, originally conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Pliesetskaya. Set to music by Georges Bizet and Rodion Shchedrin it centres on the free spirited Carmen who finds herself caught in a love triangle. This is followed by a new contemporary work Petrushka by Edward Clug set to music by Stravinsky.
