Bolshoi Ballet Only in Cinemas production A Contemporary Evening will be shown at 7 p.m. Monday, May 15, 2017 at San Juan Community Theatre in Friday Harbor.
For one evening, the Bolshoi takes on a new challenge in Van Manen’s Frank Bridge’s Variations, León’s and Lightfoot’s Short Time Together and Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons. This encounter between some of the best dancers in the world and masters of contemporary choreography results in an outstanding synthesis of bringing formal beauty, intensity and witty brilliance to a new level.
Music: Benjamin Britten, Max Richter, Ludwig van Beethoven, Leonid Desyatnikov Choreography: Hans Van Manen, Sol León, Paul Lightfoot, Alexei Ratmansky Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
The presentation of our HD productions—including from the most renowned ballet company in the world: Russia’s Bolshoi Ballet! — is made possible through a generous bequest from the late Dodie Gann and underwriting by the McGee Foundation.
