The Bolshoi Ballet returns to Riverside’s Big Screen with a new season


For its sixth consecutive year, the Bolshoi Ballet returns to Riverside with four stunning ballets. Captured live in high definition, direct from Moscow and screened on our Big Screen, this is your opportunity to enjoy these outstanding performances with the Bolshoi principals, soloists and corps de ballet from the comfort of our theatre.

Founded in 1776, the legendary Bolshoi Ballet is one of the most celebrated ballet companies in the world. The company is made up of more than 250 dancers including some of the world’s most celebrated artists today.

Tickets range from $15 – $25. Check out the exquisite line up and reasons why you can’t miss each screening:

Giselle
5 March
This treasure of a romantic ballet is one of the oldest and greatest in classical repertoire, touching upon the great romantic themes: a doomed love affair ending in tragedy, a dive into fantasy and ultimate redemption through the power of love. The Bolshoi is renowned for its intimate and emotionally intense interpretation of this beloved drama.

The Lady of the Camellias
12 March
The Bolshoi breathes new life into John Neumeier’s tragic masterpiece, inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ novel and accompanied by Chopin’s exquisite score. This production assumes a new emotional and dramatic texture that only the Bolshoi’s dancers can deliver. “Neumeier’s character-rich ballet has found a company that is equal to its challenges” – Financial Times.

The Taming of the Shrew
16 April
French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers. He achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, nonstop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way. This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else! Now is your chance to see it on the Big Screen.

Don Quixote
7 May

The Bolshoi’s panache and excellence are combined in Fadeyechev’s critically acclaimed staging of this exalting performance with Leon Minkus’ famous score. Featuring brand new sets and costumes to accompany this colourful and technically challenging production, Don Quixote is quintessential Bolshoi, abounding with life and not to be missed!
