Bolshoi Theatre Opens 235th Season with World Premiere of Angelin Preljocaj Ballet

The Bolshoi Theatre starts off its 235th season with the world premiere of the ballet "And then, One Thousand Years Peace".Creation 2010 by the outstanding contemporary French choreographer Angelin Preljocaj. The project forms part of the Year of France in Russia and of Russia in France.

The 'prehistory' to the ballet began back in 2007 when Angelin Preljocaj came to Moscow in order to select several soloists to take part in one of his productions. The Bolshoi theatre dancers made such a strong impression on him that he suggested he create a new ballet for them. And in 2009 the choreographer returned to Moscow – this time to chose dancers for this new ballet.
