Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema
In 2014, the illustrious French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot created a ballet (The Taming of the Shrew) to music by Shostakovich specially for the Bolshoi Theatre – it was the first time in twenty years that he had produced a ballet for a company other than his own (Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo). Given a tremendous reception on its first night, the Bolshoi’s The Taming of the Shrew also carried off three Golden Masks (Russia’s leading performing arts award): best ballet, and best male and female role (Vladislav Lantratov as Petruccio and Yekaterina Krysanova as Katarina). The live relay will give ballet lovers across the world a chance to see this marvelous production, while Russian viewers will have access to it too via YouTube which is also going to relay it live from the Bolshoi New Stage.
