Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema

For the 8th consecutive year, the 2018-19 Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema season presents the greatest classics re-staged by today’s most celebrated choreographers for a cinema- exclusive experience featuring some of the best dancers in the world.

Each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and cameras are carefully positioned throughout the theater to ensure the cinema audiences get the “best seat in the house” view of each production. OLLI at Eckerd College will broadcast Encore (recorded) presentations of the original live performances, scheduled at convenient dates and times for OLLI audiences. All performances are held in the comfortable Dan and Mary Miller Auditorium on the Eckerd College campus.

The Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema is generously sponsored by Westminster Communities and WUSF.
