Esmeralda at the Bolshoi


This evening my flatmate and I went to the local cinema to watch a live telecast of the Bolshoi Ballet Company's Esmeralda. Bolshoi is one of the leading ballet and opera companies in the world and is located in Moscow, Russia.

I was surprise to pay 15 quid for the tickets and find myself sitting in an assigned seat in the movie theatre - Apparently the Ballet is a serious cinema event. I then watched a romantic version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame performed before me. The intermissions (there were 2 of them) were long and drawn out - but that dancing was spectacular! Too bad I will be out of town when Sleeping Beauty hits the cinema.
