Новый лондонский сезон Большого балета
For the sixth time this century our Ballet Company is going to perform in London. It has become a great tradition that the Bolshoi Ballet opens a season at the Royal Opera House at the turn of July and August (let not every year but every second or third year).


Six years have passed since the Bolshoi Ballet’s triumphant performance in Brisbane. That's probably not so much time for such an active touring company. However, this summer the Bolshoi returns to the capital of Queensland. It will present two ballets – George Balanchine’s Jewels and Yuri Grigorovich’s Spartacus – at the same place as last time, the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC).


Bolshoi’s Opera soloists, Choir and Orchestra, led by maestro Tugan Sokhiev, appear again in France, performing Russian music at the most prestigious (and already very familiar) concert halls – Halle aux Grains in Toulouse and the Grande Salle Pierre Boulez of the Philharmonie de Paris.

Шанхай и Пекин в ожидании Большого
Bolshoi goes on tour in China. This is a large-scale project: among participants are opera, ballet and orchestra soloists. The performances will take place at the biggest venues of the country – at the Shanghai Grand Theatre and National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing.

NB! Cast changes.


Bolshoi Theatre will again take part in the Savonlinna Opera Festival. The first tour of the opera company took place in the summer of 2007, when two productions, Boris Godunov by M. Mussorgsky and The Children of Rosenthal by L. Desyatnikov, were recognized as the best of the Festival’s season. Ten years later, The Bolshoi will again perform in Savonlinna, the largest in Finland and one of the most prestigious opera venues in Europe. Tour’s program is composed of the works by P. Tchaikovsky and included opera Iolanta with the symphonic suite Nutcracker performed as part of production and opera in concert performance Eugene Onegin.


XXII Lincoln Center Festival in in New York combines three world’s most celebrated ballet companies in one presentation and also features the U.S. premiere of one of the most famous Bolshoi Ballet’s performances.


The choir, orchestra and soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre, performing under their musical director and chief conductor Tugan Sokhiev, will perform for the first time at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence (France). They will give a concert performance of Tchaikovsky’s opera Eugene Onegin.

Большой балет вновь отправляется в страну восходящего солнца
The upcoming tour is special in all senses: firstly, it is timed to the 60th anniversary of the first Bolshoi ballet tour to Japan, and secondly, it will be held within the framework of the "Russian Seasons" in Japan - a large-scale festival of Russian culture, which includes, all types and genres of arts.

NB! On 18 June Denis Rodkin will perform the part of Prince Siegfried, replacing Semyon Chudin.

Opera Company, Chorus and Orchestra of the Bolshoi go on tour in France and Switzerland. The program of concerts is almost entirely made up of works by Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The leading Russian theatre will perform the music of the major Russian composer at the best concert halls of Zurich, Geneva, Toulouse and Paris.


Before the Bolshoi opens its own 241st season, the Teatro alla Scala Opera Company will be making a guest appearance on its historic stage. One might describe this as “yet another” Moscow tour by this illustrious Italian Company were it not for the fact that each La Scala visit is a major, unforgettable event in our cultural life.

The tour opened on July 25 with Don Quixote – known as the most ‘Muscovite’ of all the classical ballets. It was first produced by Marius Petipa at the Bolshoi in 1869 since when, it has occupied pride of place in the Bolshoi repertoire. Don Quixote is one of the most popular items in the Theatre’s touring programs.
NB! Cast is object to change.

The Bolshoi Theatre’s only school abroad is in Brazil. It was opened in 2000, in the city of Joinville (State of Santa Catarina) with the noble aim of providing a profession to Brazilian children who are cut out by nature for dance and lack the wherewithal to obtain a good education, ballet training included (incidentally, there is no particular tradition of ballet training in Brazil). The education given at the Bolshoi Theatre Joinville school is really good — three of its graduates are already dancing with success as members of the Bolshoi Ballet Company itself. This year the Bolshoi Theatre Joinville School is celebrating its 15th anniversary and at long last the Bolshoi Ballet Company is off on tour to Brazil where it has not been seen for all of sixteen years.


In its short performance history (less than ten months), The Bolshoi’s version of the ballet The Taming of the Shrew is off on its second tour. In December of last year it created a furore at one of the most famous European ballet festivals — The Forum of Dance in Monaco (Monte Carlo), organized by the choreographer of our ‘hit’ Jean Christophe Maillot.
This time round our The Taming of the Shrew will adorn the programme of another well-known festival — the St. Petersburg Dance Open.

Alexandrinsky Theatre.


It will give a concert performance of The Marriage of Figaro at The Northern Lights Festival.


Onegin, one of the most popular John Cranko creations thanks to which made by John Cranko owing to whom the thanks Stuttgart Ballet acquired world fame, entered the Bolshoi Theatre repertoire in 2013. Then came a performance in Moscow’s Onegin by Stuttgart Ballet soloists. And, finally, on the eve of Orthodox Christmas the Bolshoi Ballet Onegin soloists were invited to Stuttgart for a return visit: they danced the leads in Onegin with the Stuttgart Company and enjoyed a great success. One can find the evidence on Facebook: “WOW! What a great Onegin performance we were able to enjoy last night at the Opera House!!! Thanks again to the five wonderful dancers from Moscow: Vlasdislav Lantratov, Evgenia Obraztsova, Semyon Chudin, Anna Tikhomirova and Vitaly Biktimirov. You certainly deserved you standing ovations!”
