Bolshoi Ballet – Onegin – Moscow

★★★✰✰   Nina Kaptsova and Ruslan Skvortsov reviewed – There were few dry eyes in the auditorium as the opulent gold and red curtains of the Bolshoi Theatre closed on the petite distraught figure of Pushkin’s heroine, Tatiana.

Bolshoi Ballet – The Flames of Paris – London

★★★★✰   The great pleasure of Alexei Ratmansky’s version of Vasily Vainonen’s 1932 ballet is the cornucopia of steps to which both choreographers had access: danse d’école, folk and character dances, as well as expressive acting.

Bolshoi Ballet – Coppelia – Washington

The Bolshoi’s new Coppelia was heavenly fun. Vikharev’s production brought to the fore the Russian ballet tradition of expressive pantomime and spirited ensemble dances.
