The Sleeping Beauty | Marco Spada

The Art of David Hallberg at the Bolshoi

A tribute to the art of David Hallberg, the first main American soloist ever to be hired by the Bolshoi Ballet, featuring The Sleeping Beauty (where he performs alongside Sveltana Zakharova & Maria Allash) and Marco Spada (with Evguenia Obtraztsova)

All performances were recorded at the State Academic Bolshoi Theater of Moscow.

THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

The choreographer, Yuri Grigorovich presents a new version of one of his most famous choreography for a breath taking experience in splendid sets designed by Ezio Frigerio and more than 400 new costumes designed by Franca Squarciapino. The American superstar dancer David Hallberg is Prince Désiré. Princess Aurora is danced by the principal Svetlana Zakharova. They are joined by a great cast : Maria Allash (Lilac Fairy), Artem Ovcharenko (Bluebird) and Nina Kaptsova (Princess Florine).

MARCO SPADA

Re-created specifically for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, “Marco Spada, or the Bandit’s Daughter” is a grandiose and unique ballet both on a technical and dramatic level: complex choreography, five lead roles created for five principals, several changes in scenery, the participation of nearly all the Corps de ballet, and even the presence of animals on stage… With its scenes of pantomime, devilish intrigue, rejected suitors, kidnapping heroines, rebellion, and lovers misunderstandings, Marco Spada is a fresh and joyful ballet to discover. The american soloist David Hallberg stars as Marco Spada with Evguenia Obraztsova, Olga Smirnova, Semion Chudin and the Corps de ballet of the Bolshoi Ballet.
