WATCH THE BOLSCHOI BALLET ON MARQUEE.TV

Coppelia Premiering Saturday May 30th

While I am dearly missing live ballet and dance performances in these times of corona, fortunately there are plenty of streaming offers around. Now I discovered Marquee.TV where you can get a 14-day free trial! https://www.marquee.tv

Don’t miss COPPELIA – one of the most popular classical ballets. An ebullient comedy involving a feisty heroine, a boyish fiancee with a wandering eye, and an old dollmaker. COPPELIA is a true classic, performed by companies around the world and enjoyed by audiences for its abrasive and sardonic comedy. This most recent staging from the Bolshoi Ballet features Margarita Shrayner as the witty Swanilda, and Artem Ovcharenko as the love-sick Frantz as well as the company’s always-stunning corps de ballet in the famous “dance of the hours”.
