The entire programme is outlined below.
The Rite of Spring Stravinsky/Nijinsky
Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is widely loved as one of the greatest pieces of music of the 20th century. The savage beauty of the music, the depiction of pagan fertility rituals and human sacrifice caused riots at the Ballet’s premiere in Paris in 1913. This performance commemorates the 100th anniversary of that memorable and ground-breaking occasion. This performance screening has been cancelled.
Romeo & Juliet Prokofiev/Radlov/Piotrovsky
Prokofiev’s great ballet based on Shakespeare’s timeless love story of two young lovers from feuding families is one of the most popular ballets in the world. In his new (2010) Bolshoi choreography, the character of Juliet has been developed by the great Yuri Grigorovitch from his personal meories of Natalia Bessmertnova – his first Juliet, and main inspiration.
