Presented by BY Experience and Pathe Live, Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to North American audiences in cinemas only for a 2016-2017 season boasting impeccable classicism and daring performances. With timeless story-ballet classics, such as The Nutcracker, The Sleeping Beauty, and Swan Lake, productions signature to the Bolshoi including The Golden Age, The Bright Stream, and A Hero Of Our Time, and an evening dedicated to modern choreography, A Contemporary Evening, the Bolshoi proves it is the world’s preeminent ballet company.
On Christmas Eve, Marie’s wooden nutcracker doll transforms into a beautiful prince who takes her on a magical journey. Before they leave, they must confront the Mouse King whose army is threatening Marie… Christmas would not be complete without the enchanting tale of young Marie and her Nutcracker prince! Danced by the Bolshoi’s principals, E.T.A. Hoffmann’s fairytale staged by Russian ballet master Yuri Grigorovich will transport children and adults alike to a world of magic and wonder for the holiday season.
