Bolshoi Ballet at the Lark

Live on screen from Moscow!

Founded in 1776, the Bolshoi is among the world’s oldest ballet companies, and is currently recognized as one of the foremost ballet companies in the world.

 

The Sleeping Beauty
Sun, Mar 10, (Encore) – 1:00 pm

Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

On her sixteenth birthday, Princess Aurora falls under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse and into a deep slumber lasting one hundred years. Only the kiss of a prince can break the spell.

A resplendent fairytale ballet, The Sleeping Beauty features scores of magical characters including fairies, the Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a “truly extraordinary talent” (The Telegraph). This is classical ballet at its finest.

 

The Golden Age
Sun, Apr 7 – 1:00 pm

Music: Dmitri Shostakovich
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

In the 1920’s, The Golden Age cabaret is a favorite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot,” but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka…

With its jazzy score by Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, The Golden Age is a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring 20’s. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi!

 

Carmen Suite / Petrushkaz
Sun, May 26 – 1:00 pm

Music: Georges Bizet, Rodion Shchedrin and Igor Stravinsky
Choreography: Alberto Alonso and Edward Clug

Carmen: Impetuous Carmen seduces Don José in order to convince him to let her out of jail. Once outside, she thinks she’s finally free before realizing that she’s in fact prisoner of a love triangle: she wants to be with the famous Torero Escamillo, but she can’t make Don José go away.

Petruska: At Saint-Petersburg’s carnival, three puppets are playing the same role over and over: the unhappy lover Petrushka, the coquette and a Moor. Fed up with this endless part that never goes well for him, Petrushka attacks his rival and flees from the puppets theater.
