Coppelia
When: April 20, 2018
The eclectics of Coppelia seem to appear from a magic jewel box with a secret. Libretto by Charles Nuitter and Arthur Saint-Leon is based on the novelettes by Ernst Theodor Amadeus Hoffmann. The choreography was reconstructed on the basis of the materials stored in the Harvard Theatre Collection.
On the stage of the Bolshoi Theater, the fairy tale based on Hoffmann’s novelettes has become true rejoicing of the spirit. When writing about this theatre, only superlative adjectives come up in your head. This country’s best opera and ballet house brings its performances to perfection, and its stage costumes are no less than works of art. Thus, in the restored ballet “Coppelia" (its first stage production dates back to 1870), costumes and stage settings were designed after the sketches provided by the State Museum of Theater and Music Art and the State Library of St. Petersburg. The choreographic production was performed by Sergei Vikharev. The reconstruction of the antiquarian performance with the choreography by legendary Marius Petipa immediately created an intrigue around this production.
The ballet attracts with its riot of character dances and graceful coquetry of classics, mystical riddles and boisterous fun, entertaining extravaganzas and morality allegories. Action libretto and exquisite dances take the viewers on a thrilling adventure. Comedy, pastoral and a horror tale are intertwined in a bizarre combination in this performance.
The eclecticism of the ballet was enthusiastically welcomed by the troupe. There are no clearly defined heroes and heroines, so there is freedom of expression for all. The profuseness of every party has benefited the overall development of the troupe as a whole.

La Bayadere
When: April 30, 2018
"La Bayadere" (1877) is the last tragic ballet by Marius Petipa and the first one in the range of his masterpieces. This is a colorful, slightly nostalgic farewell of the 58-year-old grand master of the St. Petersburg ballet to the romantic illusions and melodrama that are so close to his heart.
Till the age of old, Marius Petipa remained a gallant admirer of the fair sex. For him, a woman was the symbol of ballet. Petipa's man was assigned the modest role of a beautiful lady’s gallant gentleman. Here lies the basis of his ballet aesthetics and the core of La Bayadere.
In the first La Bayadere production, simply everything is there! A melodramatic plot about the love of two perjurers, the classical conflict of love and duty, as well as a class conflict - the rivalry of a poor bayadere and rajah’s daughter. Even its final is sacrilegious for the imperial stage: the death of rulers and courtiers under the temple ruins during the wedding of Solor and Gamzatti ... At the same time there is a huge amount of solo and ensemble, classical and character dances, majestic processions and pantomime episodes, including the famous "scene of jealousy of two rivals"- Nikia and Gamzatti. Moreover, La Bayadere is not lacking in mysticism and symbolism.
In 1904, choreographer Alexander Gorsky shifted La Bayadere to the stage of the Bolshoi Theater. Subsequently, the original was repeatedly changed. It was not before 1991 that Yuri Grigorovich returned the full-length version by Marius Petipa to the Bolshoi Theatre, having revived the original initially staged at the Mariinsky Theatre.

Where: the Main Stage of the Bolshoi Theater at the address 1, Teatralnaya Square, next to Okhotny Ryad metro station, Moscow.
