Boris Pokrovsky's acclaimed production of Mlada, a story of early Slavs prior to Christian conversion, captures the essence of the Bolshoi's traditions of drama and realism. It is complemented by Andrei Petrov's inspired choreography, with its amazing variety of ritual dances.
Dancing is indeed the crux of Mlada, which can be best described more as a ballet with a vocal score rather than an opera with dancing. World renowned star of the Bolshoi Ballet, Nina Ananiashvili, exquisitely dances the double role of Mlada/Cleopatra. Designer Valéry Levental has created breathtaking fantasy effects, immersed in the traditions of Slavonic art, transforming the stage into a panorama of stunning, bizarre and ever-changing delights.
A Fantasy Opera-Ballet in four acts.
