An evening of brilliant Russian choreographers from the Bolshoi Ballet.

In Russian Seasons, the Bolshoi presents Ratmansky’s dazzling and spirited celebration of Russian folk dance.

Inspired by Sergei Diaghilev, Petrushka is the tale of the comi-tragic puppet with a human soul. Fokine’s choreography, Benois’s designs and Stravinsky’s strikingly original music combine to create this work of genius.

Yuri Burlaka’s revival of the famous Grand Pas from Petipa’s masterpiece, Paquita, presents the Bolshoi’s greatest ballerinas in a glittering display of spectacular virtuosity.
