Two great ballets display the elegance and beauty of the Bolshoi Ballet’s dancers.

Serenade is a magical fusion of Balanchine’s choreographic genius with Tchaikovsky’s poetry and drama.

Giselle, the story of the betrayed peasant girl whose love transcends even death, has captivated audiences for over 160 years. Yuri Grigorovich’s acclaimed version embodies all the lyricism and purity of the Romantic style as well as its charm and pathos.
