With an impressive new season, the Bolshoi continues to prove that it is one of the world’s foremost ballet companies.

“”It is absolutely wonderful that Bolshoi Ballet lovers in North America have the unique chance to see our productions through direct transmissions to cinemas, said Makhar Vaziev, Artistic Director of Bolshoi Ballet. “With our performances beamed live to the viewers in cinemas, audiences are able to experience a truly genuine feeling of ‘being in the moment’ with the Bolshoi dancers and inside our auditorium, and I am thrilled that our work and our artists will be seen thousands of miles from Moscow to North American cinemas for the 2016-17 Season.”

“The productions of the Bolshoi Ballet, an admired and lauded company globally, belong on the big screen,” said Julie Borchard-Young Co-President BY Experience. “We are thrilled to distribute the Bolshoi Ballet to hundreds of cinemas across North America, so ballet fans can experience their inspirational performances, up close on the big screen, right in their own communities.”
