The Bolshoi Ballet’s ‘Coppelia’ Coming to Theaters June 10

The incomparable Bolshoi Ballet brings its production of the classic comedic ballet “Coppelia” to cinemas nationwide on Sunday, June 10, for one day only. Captured live from Moscow’s legendary Bolshoi Theatre earlier that same day, the performance marks the final production of the 2017-18 Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema Series, presented by Fathom Events in partnership with BY Experience and Pathé Live. Details regarding the 2018-19 series will be announced soon.

The Bolshoi’s unique version of “Coppelia” exhibits a fascinating reconstruction by Russian ballet-master Sergei Vikharev in 2009 based on legendary choreographer Marius Petipa’s original 19th century choreographic notations currently archived at Harvard University Theatre Collection. The cheerful comedy features a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancé with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. Also not-to-be-missed is the company’s stunning corps de ballet in the divertissements and famous “dance of the hours,” and its principals abounding in youthful energy and irresistible humor.
