THE SLEEPING BEAUTY
The choreographer, Yuri Grigorovich presents a new version of one of his most famous choreography for a breathtaking experience in splendid sets designed by Ezio Frigerio and more than 400 new costumes designed by Franca Squarciapino.
Choreography : Yuri Grigorovich • Recorded in 2011
Re-created specifically for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, “Marco Spada, or the Bandit’s Daughter” is a grandiose and unique ballet both on a technical and dramatic level: complex choreography, five lead roles created for five principals, several changes in scenery, the participation of nearly all the Corps de ballet, and even the presence of animals on stage…
With its scenes of pantomime, devilish intrigue, rejected suitors, kidnapping heroines, rebellion, and lovers misunderstandings, Marco Spada is a fresh and joyful ballet to discover. The american soloist David Hallberg stars as Marco Spada with Evguenia Obraztsova, Olga Smirnova, Semion Chudin and the Corps de ballet of the Bolshoi Ballet.
Choreography : Pierre Lacotte • Recorded in 2013
