IVAN THE TERRIBLE     

IVAN THE TERRIBLE


A rare opportunity to see this dazzling and dramatic ballet which is unique to the Bolshoi, coming live from their Moscow theatre.

Drawing on the music composed by Sergei Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film of the same name, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. The artistic director’s powerful and fascinating epic dramatises Ivan the Terrible’s controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigour, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colours of medieval Russia.

Recently revived, Ivan the Terrible is an essential part of the company’s repertoire, a 20th-century classic and a wonderful theatrical experience.

This will be the last live screening from the Bolshoi of the 2014-15 season.. the next ballet from the Bolshoi will be in the Autumn.
