Live Broadcasts in the 2013/14 season


For the past three years the Bolshoi Theatre, together with Pathe Live and Bel Air Media, have presented live transmissions of their ballet performances in cinemas worldwide. This makes Bolshoi Ballet Company performances accessible to viewers in cities and countries around the world. Last season, these live transmissions were made available to Russian audiences too. CoolConnections, the Film Distributing Company, is now a Bolshoi Theatre partner.

In its 238th season the Bolshoi Theatre will present live transmissions:
