A Play for Him is the benefit of the Bolshoi Ballet’s wonderful male dancers, who are quite unique in their own way.

NB! The program for A Play for Him   

Will be performed on April, 25th & 26th.

A well-known opera by Giuseppe Verdi – Un Ballo in Maschera – returns to the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre. This is a typical Verdi’s case: great music (some arias and ensembles have become world famous hits), increased passions, breathtaking plot which should be followed closely to keep up with. And a distinguishing mark (which appeared due to the censorship) – is a wandering place of action, which affects the spelling of the main character’s name and title.

* Dial M for Murder is iconic film directed by Alfred Hitchcock (1954).

A Beauty with enameled eyes is back with us again!
main-page_Коппелия-hp.jpg

In the year of Marius Petipa (March 11 marked the 200th anniversary of his birth) after a four and a half-year nap, Coppelia returned to the repertoire of the Bolshoi Theatre, a true masterpiece brilliantly choreographed by Petipa to the gorgeous music by Leo Delibes. Although the libretto is based on the well-known dark short story by Hoffman, in fact, this ballet is one of the most fun in the entire classical heritage.

Unfortunately, the life of Sergei Vikharev – the author of the new version of the Mariinsky theatre production of 1894, which was shown at the Bolshoi in 2009 – was cut short by an unhappy coincidence, so he could not take part in the revival of his performance. The Bolshoi ballet pays tribute to a colleague – a wonderful choreographer, teacher and a true Master.

NB! The cast for the first run of the shows (which will be held on the New Stage 20, 21 (beginning at 12 and 19 hours) and 22 April) is announced.

The Bolshoi cooperates again with acknowledged choreographer, director of the Hamburg Ballet John Neumeier. We used to show his famous Midsummer Night’s Dream, we perform his glorious Lady of the Camellias (both ballets born in the mid-1970s are among the masterpieces of the world ballet theatre). Still the third work gets out even from this series. For this time John Neumeier displays Anna Karenina (the title speaks for itself). This is the new production, a co-production with Hamburg ballet – which showed the world premiere of this piece last summer.
