Bolshoi Ballet: Lady of Camellias


Bolshoi Ballet: Lady of Camellias

Sunday 8 November 2020 | 2:00 pm


Captured live in Moscow in 2015.

Choreographer John Neumeier adapts Alexandre Dumas Fils’s timeless novel The Lady of the Camellias for the stage with great sensitivity and emotional depth in his work of rare beauty.

Armand Duval finds himself at the auction of the famous courtesan Marguerite Gautier’s possessions after she passed away. She was Armand’s true love, and the vision of her belongings awakens vivid memories of their turbulent love story.

As the troubled courtesan Marguerite, superstar prima Svetlana Zakharova and Hamburg Ballet’s guest star Edvin Revazov as Armand bring the passionate drama to new emotional heights accompanied by Chopin’s fantastic score.
