2016/2017 season plans

Recommended Posts

A PDF of plans for the new season is here:
http://www.bolshoi.ru/upload/medialibrary/20c/20c115ae3172aeea15884a1c15359cbc.pdf

What will be on the program with Etudes has not yet been specified. (It had been announced previously that Wheeldon's Strapless would be a co-production with the Royal Ballet, but perhaps that has been put on hold--perhaps owing to a same-sex kiss on stage.) Nureyev will feature the same team that put together A Hero of Our Time: Yuri Possokhov, Ilya Demutsky, Kirill Serebrennikov, Elena Zaitseva.

The Grigovorich festival in January and February will include The Nutcracker, Spartacus, Giselle, Sleeping Beauty, Legend of Love, The Golden Age, Raymonda, Romeo and Juliet, La Bayadère and Ivan the Terrible, but not a revival of The Stone Flower.

There will be a 75th-birthday gala for Mikhail Lavrovsky in November and another to commemorate what would have been Maris Liepa's 80th birthday, about a half year late in December.

There will be a tour to Japan in May-June 2017 (Swan Lake, Giselle, Flames of Paris) and another to New York in July 2017 (Jewels, Taming of the Shrew).

The cinema season had been announced previously.

Yes, thanks for the news. Hope I will be able to see Taming of the Shrew. (A little sorry New York can't get the kind of Bolshoi seasons London gets.)

I find the lack of Stone Flower sad -- we can see Bayadere and Raymonda and the other heritage works in multiple productions, but if they're going to recognize his work, why not bring back the specific stuff?

I think it's so sad they're not bringing any Grigorovich ballets to NY. I'd love to see any of them, but especially Ivan the Terrible and Legend of Love.
