At moonlight on the banks of a mysterious lake, Prince Siegfried meets the bewitched swan-­‐ woman
Odette. Completely spellbound by her beauty, he swears his faithfulness to her. However, the Prince
realizes too late that Fate has another plan for him….
A ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection born at the Bolshoi in 1877. In
the dual role of white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana
Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery,  alongside the
powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin. Including breathtaking scenes with the Bolshoi’s
corps de ballet, this is classical ballet at its finest.

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

The Bolshoi boldly takes on a new challenge in a triptych of works by three masters of modern and contemporary choreography.  For the first time, the company performs The Cage by legendary Academy Award-winning choreographer Jerome Robbins, a master of visualizing and translating music to movement.  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.

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.” 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.
