Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema: THE FLAMES OF PARIS
For the 2017-18 season, the Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to North American audiences in cinemas for the 4th consecutive season, presented by BY Experience and Pathe Live. The robust new season will feature awe-inspiring reconstructions of historical ballets.
In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way…
Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi’s overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky’s captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen’s The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.
Music Boris Asafiev
Choreography Alexei Ratmansky, after Vasily Vainonen
Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
Each program will be preceded by a 20 minute “pre-show” which takes place before each ballet. It includes views of Moscow, the Bolshoi Theatre, interviews with dancers, and the season trailer.
Tickets are $15 for general admission; $10 for military and seniors; $5 for SCAD Card holders, non-SCAD students and children under 15.
