The Legend of Love – Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 11:55 a.m. CT / 10:55 a.m. MT and 12:55 p.m. PT/AK/HI
Music: Arif Melikov
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a 10-year absence. “The Legend of Love” is one of Russian ballet master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and one that gave rise to his illustrious career at the Bolshoi.

The Pharaoh’s Daughter (recorded) – Sunday, Nov. 23, 2014
Music: Cesare Pugni
Choreography: Pierre Lacotte

French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.  Starring Svetlana Zakharova, Ruslan Skvortsov and Nina Kaptsova.

La Bayadere (recorded) – Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014
Music: Ludwig Minkus
Choreography: Marius Petipa with new version by Yuri Grigorovich

The story of impossible love between Nikiya and Solor is set against the backdrop of a lush, mysterious India. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite. Bolshoi prima ballerinas Svetlana Zakharova and Maria Alexandrova star opposite Bolshoi premier Vladislav Lantratov.

The Nutcracker – Sunday, Dec. 21, 2014 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 11:55 a.m. CT / 10:55 a.m. MT and tape-delayed to 12:55 p.m. PT/AK/HI
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography:  Yuri Grigorovich

Based on E. T. A. Hoffmann’s story, “The Nutcracker” is one of the greatest classics in the world. With iconic music by Tchaikovsky, and enchanting sets and costumes, this beautiful tale explores the universal themes of love, power and evil.

Swan Lake – Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 11:55 a.m. CT / 10:55 a.m. MT and tape-delayed to 12:55 p.m. PT/AK/HI
Music: Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

The great legend of the enigmatic swan/woman is one of the most romantic classical ballets, appropriately set in the era of courtly romance and characterized by elegance, style and harmony. With Tchaikovsky’s famous, lyrical score, Swan Lake depicts the tragic love between Princess Odette and Prince Siegfried, and will no doubt be performed to perfection by the unparalleled virtuosity of Russia’s great Bolshoi Ballet.

Romeo and Juliet (recorded) – Sunday, March. 8, 2015 at 12:55 p.m. local time
Music:  Sergei Prokofiev
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

William Shakespeare’s timeless story, written in 1595, is brought to the stage through breathtaking choreography and Sergei Prokofiev’s much-loved score. This story of impossible love remains an all-time favorite, and is one of the world’s most popular ballets. Starring Anna Nikulina as Juliet and Alexander Volchkov as Romeo.

Ivan the Terrible – Sunday, April 19, 2015 at 12:55 p.m. ET / 11:55 a.m. CT / 10:55 a.m. MT and tape-delayed to 12:55 p.m. PT/AK/HI
Music: Sergei Prokofiev
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich

Drawing on the music composed by Prokofiev for the 1944 Eisenstein film, Ivan the Terrible is a work in the true Bolshoi style. Yuri Grigorovich’s powerful and fascinating epic dramatizes Ivan the Terrible’s controversial reign, and portrays events in 16th-century Russia in visually stunning scenes. His choreography, full of vigor, strength and wild jumps, also includes great grace and fragility in the female roles. Sensitive classical and powerful character dance blend to create a lyrical epic, rich in the colors of medieval Russia.
