La Fille du Pharaon hasn't stepped foot on the Bolshoi’s stage for six years, but remains embedded in our minds. It goes without saying that on the 200th anniversary of ever-living Marius Petipa we can’t help but wake up the famous mummy.

A Beauty with enameled eyes is back with us again!

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.

Whatever she thought up, however many remarkable artists she managed to gather round her, the main treat of every Maya Plisetskaya Gala Evening was always Maya Plisetskaya herself in person. Her look, walk, dance, hint at dancing, the way she took a curtain call, the light flowing from her eyes, her formidable energy fueled by the rapturous reception she aroused in the auditorium – this was what was important and riveted the audience’s attention…
