Live Broadcast: The Lady of The Camellias
An exquisitely beautiful ballet, set to the music of Frederic Chopin.
Conductor: Pavel Sorokin
Choreography: John Neumeier
Starring: Svetlana Zakharova, Vladislav Lantratov, Bolshoi Corps de Ballet
A young bourgeois, Armand Duval, falls madly in love with Marguerite Gautier, a gorgeous courtesan celebrated by Parisian high society. Despite her infidelity, Armand will do all he can to win the beautiful woman’s heart and convince her to leave her indulgent life. Taking place over three acts with a prologue, the ballet evolves as a series of memories from three distinct points of view, and is an unmissable experience.
The Bolshoi breathed new life into John Neumeier’s tragic masterpiece, inspired by Alexandre Dumas’ novel and accompanied by Chopin’s exquisite score. This production assumes a new emotional and dramatic texture that only the Bolshoi’s dancers can deliver.
