New Stage

18 December, 19:00
Last year was launched the Bolshoi Theatre Youth Ballet Program, cheerfully presented with a concert Faces. Our current artists, former artists who became master teachers and young guest choreographers demonstrated their skills in creating mini ballets and choreographic numbers. The lion's share of the performers represented our ballet company, which just basked in offered material. It was a warm "non-academic" evening on which the artists and the public seemed to reach absolute unity.

It is now up to the second entrance. Everyone liked the title so much that it was decided to keep it for the second concert. We represent Faces -2017: not only the new ones, but also familiar from the last year’s concert (passion for creating choreography, once mastered a person, does not pass).

"Opportunity is the main word that determines the idea of our program. The theatre's mission is to provide the participants of the program with the opportunity to adopt experience of the leading choreographers of the world, who stage at the Bolshoi, to work with the Bolshoi artists, to draw inspiration from their talent and professionalism, to use the technical resources of the Bolshoi, and finally to demonstrate their works on the stage of the Russia's main national theatre.

We are not looking for another Petipa or another Grigorovich - we are interested in new creative individuals. In new Faces, " defined the goals of the Bolshoi Theatre Youth Ballet Program its director Sergei Filin.
