Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema 2016/2017 – A Contemporary Evening

7 April 2017 @ 7:30 pm

€5 – €15

from the Moscow stage

‘The old idea of a composer suddenly having a terrific idea and sitting up all night to write it is nonsense. Night-time is for sleeping.’
Benjamin Britten

Encore: Friday 7 April 2017, 7.30PM
Venue: Cinema (St James Cavalier)

In this bold new production, the Bolshoi takes on a daunting challenge in Hans Van Manen’s Frank Bridge Variations, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot’s Short Time Together as well as Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons.

This encounter between some of the best dancers the Bolshoi has to offer and internationally-renown masters of contemporary choreography results in an outstanding synthesis, bringing Van Manen’s formal beauty, León and Lightfoot’s intensity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance to a new level.
