Наш гость – Гийом Коте
December, 15 (evening performance) the title role in Romeo and Juliet will be performed by an amazing Canadian dancer Guillaume Côté – creator of Romeo’s part in Alexei Ratmansky’s production, commissioned by the National ballet of Canada (NBC).


About two years ago a concert version of fascinating Il Viaggio a Reims by Rossini was performed on the Bolshoi’s Historical stage. After several performances it became clear that we should include this opera in our repertoire. This idea came from the Music Director of the Bolshoi: Tugan Sokhiev conducted it in 2017, and now he also serves as a conductor.


December 11, 2018 the Bolshoi will conduct a unique broadcast from behind the scenes: one day before the premiere of Il Viaggio a Reims by Rossini we will show how this production is created. Starting at 11 a.m.!

Promotion in the Bolshoi Ballet
Georgy Gusev is promoted to the Soloist.


The Bolshoi presents the premiere of two one-act ballets – a famous work by William Forsythe (the first) and exclusive ballet by Edward Clug (the second). There is no need to explain, that's good news.


Il Barbiere di Siviglia — the most popular opera buffa by Gioacchino Rossini — returns to the Bolshoi. The new production of this piece will be staged on the New Stage by maestro Pierre Giorgio Morandi, a famous Italian conductor invited for the first time to the Bolshoi, and the director of our beloved Le Nozze di Figaro (to music by Mozart, 2015) Evgeny Pisarev, so this is the second time he’s turned to the story of the restless Figaro.
