Bolshoi Ballet: Carmen Suite and Petrushka

August 5, 2019 @ 6:30 pm

Carmen Suite by Georges Bizet-Rodion Shchedrin:

Impetuous Carmen seduces Don José in order to convince him to let her out of jail. Once outside, she thinks she’s finally free before realizing that she is, in fact, a prisoner of a love triangle. She wants to be with the famous Torero Escamillo, but she cannot make Don José go away. Carmen is as passionate and free-spirited as ever, but she finds herself caught in a conundrum. The passionate one-act ballet by Cuban choreographer Alberto Alonso, originally conceived for legendary Bolshoi prima ballerina Maya Plisetskaya, will captivate audiences. Carmen Suite along with Petrushka, a new creation for the Bolshoi by contemporary choreographer Edward Clug, will make for an evening that will encapsulate the soul of Russian ballet.

Music Director: Pavel Sorokin

Petrushka by Igor Stravinsky:

At Saint-Petersburg’s carnival, three puppets are playing the same role over and over: the unhappy lover Petrushka, the coquette and a Moor. Fed up with this endless part that never goes well for him, Petrushka attacks his rival and flees from the puppet theatre.
