The Bolshoi have released their cinema screening programme for the next season. Four are live broadcasts and four have already been transmitted. This is the 5th year that the Bolshoi has been broadcasting to cinemas.
The season’s main event is the Russian premiere of Alexei Ratmansky’s Romeo and Juliet. His Flames of Paris is also in the line-up.
Repertoire pieces are Le Corsaire, Coppélia and Giselle; Jean-Christophe Maillot’s The Taming of the Shrew and John Neumeier’s Lady of the Camellias are more modern fare, and, of course, the Bolshoi’s (dreadful) production of The Nutcracker will be rolled out at Christmas.
