The tenth, jubilee season of the transmissions and retransmissions "Bolshoi Ballet Live" from the Moscow scene will begin on October 27, 2019 with the HD LIVE performance of Raymonda – a great classical ballet to the music of Alexander Glazunov, rarely performed on western stages due to the extremely high demands placed on dancers.
Traditionally, among the seven presented titles, there will be stagings of great nineteenth-century classical ballets, awaited by ballet lovers all over the world. We will see Piotr Czajkowski's Swan Lake in the new cast of soloists and The Nutcracker around Christmas. Both ballets were choreographed by Yuri Grigorovich, a long-time director of the Bolshoi Theater ballet company. After a huge turnout success and repeated retransmissions, a beautiful romantic ballet Giselle will re-appear on the screens, but in a completely new choreography by Alexei Ratmański. We will also watch a colorful, oriental Le Corsaire – an adventurous story about the pirate Conrad and his beloved Medora abducted to the harem of a sultan.
Following the previous seasons, the programme will also feature 20th-century masterpieces. At the end of the season, the new version of Romeo and Juliet, prepared for the Bolshoi Theater by Alexei Ratmański and broadcast live in 2017, will be screened again. In April, the Jewels – a ballet evening in three parts in George Balanchine's choreography – will shine on the screens. This beautiful spectacle honors three styles of dance, compared to precious stones: emeralds, rubies and diamonds. For over two centuries, the Bolshoi Theater ballet company (the State Academic Grand Theater of Russia) has made a name for itself not only among the dance lovers. The Bolshoi Theater rarely performs outside its headquarters, which is why the annual cycle of transmissions and retransmissions of the most beautiful ballet performances from Moscow has become a real treat for the audiences around the world.
