Afternoon at The Bolshoi at Merlin Theatre

The Bolshoi Ballet presents ‘A Contemporary Evening’ in a filmed theatre screening from Moscow, at the Merlin on Sunday 19th March at 3pm.

With music by Benjamin Britten, Max Richter, Ludvig van Beethoven and Leonid Desyatnikov and choreography by Hans Van Manen, Sol León, Paul Lightfoot, Alexei Ratmansky, the Bolshoi principals, soloists and Corps De Ballet take on a bold new challenge in Hans Van Manen’s Frank Bridge’s Variations, Sol León and Paul Lightfoot’s Short Time Together and Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons.

This encounter between some of the best dancers in the world and the masters of contemporary choreography results in an outstanding synthesis, raising Van Manen’s formal beauty, León and Lightfoot’s intensity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance to a new level.

Tickets £16.00, concessions £10.50. Running time 2 hours 40 minutes.
