Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema 2016/2017 – A Hero of Our Time

‘Whether I am a fool or a villain I know not; but this is certain, I am also most deserving of pity.”
Mikhail Lermontov

Live: Sunday 9 April 2017, 5.00PM
Encore: Friday 5 May 2017, 7.30PM
Venue: Cinema (St James Cavalier)

Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the Caucasus, on a path set by his passionate encounters. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts pain upon himself and the women around him…

“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” Based on the larger-than-life hero, Pechorin, and adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece, the Bolshoi production takes us on three separate narratives 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 sets out on a tragic poetic journey to unmask the hero in Pechorin.
