Bolshoi Ballet Summer Encore Series in Grass Valley

Submitted to Prospector

For ballet-lovers, there is nothing like the impeccable classicism and daring performances of the Bolshoi Ballet. This summer, audiences will have the opportunity to see three of the most beloved ballets in encore screenings at Sutton Cinemas in Grass Valley. "Giselle," "Romeo & Juliet," and "Swan Lake" will be presented in stunning, cinematic excitement on Monday evenings, beginning July 23.

Guests will be immersed in the chilling, yet luminous ballet that has captivated audiences for over 150 years at the Bolshoi, "Giselle," Monday, July 23.

When Giselle learns that her beloved Albrecht is promised to another woman, she dies of a broken heart in his arms. While Albrecht grieves, she returns from the dead as a Wili, a vengeful spirit meant to make unfaithful men dance until death. Prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova personifies this ultimate ballerina role in the classical repertoire, alongside the sensational Sergei Polunin as Albrecht.

On Monday, July 30, comes Alexei Ratmansky's "poetic" production (The New York Times) of "Romeo and Juliet," a fresh re-telling of Shakespeare's beloved classic, presented with a dramatic urgency and set to Prokofiev's romantic score.

Finally, on Aug. 6, comes a ballet of ultimate beauty and a score of unparalleled perfection, "Swan Lake," born at the Bolshoi in 1877.

In the dual role of white swan Odette and her rival black swan Odile, prima ballerina Svetlana Zakharova exudes both vulnerability and cunning through superb technical mastery, alongside the powerful and emotional Siegfried, Denis Rodkin.
