Bolshoi Ballet production from Moscow debuts on the big screen at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (February 5, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival presents Ballet in Cinema on Monday, Feb. 12 when it hosts the big screen encore of “The Lady of the Camellias” from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. There will be one show at 3:00 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“The Lady of the Camellias” features music by Frederic Chopin and choreography by John Neumeier. Principal dancers include Svetlana Zakharova (Margeurite), Edvin Revazov (Armand), Andrei Merkuriev (Monsieur Duval), Anna Tikhomirova (Manon Lescaut), Semyon Chudin (Des Grieux).
At a theatre performance of ‘Manon Lescaut’, the young and naive Armand is utterly captivated after meeting the ravishing and most desirable courtesan Marguerite Gautier. Their encounter gives birth to a passionate yet doomed love.
Alexandre Dumas’ novel comes to life on the Bolshoi stage, with prima Svetlana Zakharova as the ailing Marguerite seeking love and redemption from her life as a courtesan. The Bolshoi brings choreographer John Neumeier’s work of rare beauty and tragic depth to new emotional heights, accompanied by Chopin’s romantic piano score.
“The Lady of the Camellias” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Monday, Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
