From the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow comes resplendent fairytale ballet, The Sleeping Beauty, in cinemas nationwide. On her sixteenth birthday, Princess Aurora falls under the curse of the Evil Fairy Carabosse and into a deep slumber lasting one hundred years. Only the kiss of a prince can break the spell. Classical ballet at its finest, The Sleeping Beauty features scores of magical characters including fairies, the Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and a beautiful young Princess Aurora performed by Olga Smirnova, a "truly extraordinary talent" (The Telegraph).
With its jazzy score by Dmitri Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, The Golden Age is a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring 20's. From the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, The Golden Age comes to cinemas nationwide. In the 1920's, The Golden Age cabaret is a favorite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer "Mademoiselle Margot," but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi!
