Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema Performances – Last Two Shows!

It is rare to make a live performance of professional ballet, but watching world-class ballet in cinema makes it convenient and captivating.  I am going to try and take my daughter to at least one of these last two performances of the Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema for the 2016-2017 season.  There is one THIS weekend, and another next month.

Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema Performances - Last Two Shows

To watch these gorgeous masterpieces is easy.  There are participating movie theaters all over the United States partnering with Fathom Events.  To search for your closest venue and to pick up your tickets, visit Bolshoi Ballet: A Contemporary Evening and Bolshoi Ballet: A Hero of Our Time.

I’m thrilled to have received complimentary tickets in return for sharing this with you.  I can only imagine how breath-taking it will be to watch the performances in such detail and feeling like we’re even closer than front row!  They’re direct from Moscow and would be a terrific date idea or a good time to go out with your girlfriends.


Bolshoi Ballet: A Contemporary Evening

Music: Igor Stravinsky, Carl Czerny, Leonid Desyatnikov

Choreography: Jerome Robbins, Harald Lander, Alexei Ratmansky

Program: The Cage, Études, Russian Seasons

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists, and Corps de Ballet

Together with Harald Lander’s homage to classical ballet in Études and Alexei Ratmansky’s colorful folklore-inspired Russian Seasons, A Contemporary Evening brings some of the best dancers in the world together with masters of contemporary choreography. The result promises to be an outstanding synthesis of Robbins’s energy, Lander’s virtuosity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance in a programming first.

The run time for this show is 2 hours and 40 minutes.  Tickets can be purchased here:



Bolshoi Ballet: A Hero of Our Time

Music: Ilya Demutsky

Choreography: Yuri Possokhov

Libretto: Kirill Serebrennikov

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists, and Corps de Ballet

“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” The story based on the larger-than-life hero Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece in three separate stories recounting his heartbreaking betrayals. Is Pechorin a real hero? Or is he a man like any other? This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.

The run time for this show is 2 hours and 45 minutes.
