5 posts in this topic

Hello:

A few months ago, we went on a vacation to England. I saw a ballet called "The Bolshoi Ballet" I belive it was Russian. Has anyone else heard of it? It was a goregous ballet.

The Bolshoi Ballet is one of the largest most important ballet companies in the world, dance4life! How lovely that you had the privilege of seeing this company perform! Can you tell us what ballet or ballets they did on the performance you saw? Was it one ballet with 3 or 4 acts, which is called a "full length" ballet, or was it several shorter ballets, which would be called a "mixed program"? Do you have your program so you can tell us what ballets and performers you saw in the principal roles?

Unfourtunetly, I cannot find my program, (but if it happens to pop up, I will tell you) but I remeber it was called Chippiana (spelling?)

I believe that would be "Chopiniana", ballet4life, also known here as "Les Sylphides". The music is by Chopin! :) The other pieces that you saw are selections from other ballets, most likely several of them just the pas de deux. Sounds like a very fine program!
