This season presents the greatest classics for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet.

Four classical ballets (La Sylphide, Don Quixote, La Bayadère and The sleeping Beauty) will be presented along with the beloved Christmas tale The Nutcracker and the jazzy ballet The Golden Age, that can be seen only at the Bolshoi. Carmen Suite-Petruska, Edward Clug’s new creation will close the season, with two very popular characters.

The Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.
