Bolshoi Ballet HD Broadcast For Belfast

A flavour of Russia is to dance into Belfast with the Bolshoi Ballet Live in HD at the city's iconic Queen's Film Theatre, (QFT).
From October, audiences in Northern Ireland will be able to see a full season of live performances by the legendary Bolshoi Ballet transmitted live in HD by satellite from the stage of the great Bolshoi Theatre in the heart of Moscow.
The season opens on Sunday 9 October with Esmeralda by Cesare Pugni and closes on Sunday 24 June with Raymonda by Glazunov. Further programme highlights include The Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky on Sunday 20 November and The Nutcracker on Sunday 18 December.
Susan Picken, Head of QFT said: "At QFT we don't just bring you the best in new and classic world film, but theatre with NT Live, opera with the Glyndebourne Festival, visual art with Leonardo Live in November and now ballet with the legendary Bolshoi Ballet live by satellite from the heart of Moscow."
Arguably the world's greatest and most famous ballet company, this new departure by the Bolshoi Ballet will bring thrilling live performances of the greatest of world class ballet productions to audiences all around Ireland and throughout the world.
There is all the thrill and excitement of a real live performance, fabulous sound and pictures, along with the feeling that you have the best seats in the house and are part of audience in the theatre.
The 2011-12 season offers six great ballets, ranging from the great popular romantic fairytale classics such as Sleeping Beauty, to the hilarious Stalinist era satirical comedy The Bright Stream that so outraged the state censors they had its author sent to the Gulag for cultural subversion.
Along the way are dramatic tales of love and adventure in exotic lands and times of chivalry such as Le Corsaire (The Pirate) and Raymonda, the tale familiar to modern era as the Hunchback of Notre Dame in Esmeralda, and of course a Christmas performance of the perennial children's favourite The Nutcracker.
