Bolshoi Ballet: Carmen Suite/ Petrushka
Captured live the same day from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, this double-bill event for cinemas encapsulates and showcases the soul of Russian Ballet.
Carmen is as sensual and free-spirited as ever as she finds herself caught in a love triangle. The passionate one act ballet by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, originally conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, will captivate audiences alongside Petrushka, a new creation for the Bolshoi by contemporary choreographer Edward Clug.
The Bolshoi Theatre of Russia, was founded in 1776 and to this day remains a spearhead of Russian culture as one of the largest and most celebrated ballet companies in the world. For the 8th consecutive season, the Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to viewers across the world to attend their outstanding performances in more than 1,700 cinemas internationally.
