The Bolshoi Ballet Live:
DANCE AT MEGARON – THE BOLSHOI BALLET LIVE FROM MOSCOW
One of great choreographer Marius Petipa’s final masterpieces, in the version by Bolshoi legend Yuri Grigorovich.
Raymonda is betrothed to Jean de Brienne, a gallant knight in the service of the King of Hungary. While she is waiting for his return from the Crusade, a Saracen knight mysteriously appears and makes a bid for her hand. Raymonda recognizes in him the ominous stranger that had haunted her dreams…
Beautiful court scenes, romantic corps de ballet dances, Hungarian czardas, and a challenging title role, written for first-rate ballerinas.
