Special Fathom Features: A special production captured live from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.
Experience the excitement and the beauty of world-class performances from the Bolshoi Ballet at your neighborhood cinema with the Bolshoi Ballet 2014-15 Season. The production of The Legend of Love will be broadcast to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, October 26.
The royal apartments of Queen Mekhmene Banu are plunged into mourning – her younger sister, Princess Shyrin, is dying. The Princess will only be saved if the Queen gives Shyrin her beauty. The Queen decides to sacrifice herself, but later regrets her action when she is disfigured and Shyrin falls in love with the Queen’s own lover, the painter Ferkhad.
This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.
Featuring dances, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.
