Special Fathom Features: A special production captured from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, Russia.
Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live are thrilled to present an event dedicated to modern choreography, A Contemporary Evening, broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, March 19.
The Bolshoi boldly takes on a new challenge in a triptych of works by three masters of modern and contemporary choreography. For the first time, the company performs The Cage by legendary Academy Award-winning choreographer Jerome Robbins, a master of visualizing and translating music to movement. Together with Harald Lander’s homage to classical ballet in Études and Alexei Ratmansky’s colorful folklore-inspired Russian Seasons, A Contemporary Evening brings some of the best dancers in the world together with masters of contemporary choreography. The result promises to be an outstanding synthesis of Robbins’s energy, Lander’s virtuosity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance in a programming first.
