Overview


DANCE AT MEGARON – THE BOLSHOI BALLET LIVE FROM MOSCOW

In collaboration with the Pathé Live

Live broadcast

Amidst a bustling market, the pirate Conrad falls in love at first sight with the beautiful Medora, the ward of the slave merchant Lankedem’s bazaar. Conrad kidnaps Medora when Lanquedem decides to sell her to the Pasha.

Inspired by Lord Byron’s epic poem and reworked by Alexei Ratmansky from Petipa’s exotic 19th century classic, this miracle of the repertoire is one of the Bolshoi’s most lavish productions. Complete with a magnificent awe-inspring shipwreck and dramatic scenery, this grand romance allows enough dancing for nearly the entire company and made especially for those who seek miracles in theatre.

Music: Adolphe Adam
Choreography: Alexei Ratmansky
Libretto: Jules-Henri Vernoy de Saint-Georges and Joseph Mazilier
