A HERO OF OUR TIME-Ballet 2017

This year, the Bolshoi Ballet closes its season with the première of A Hero of Our Time, a unique collaboration between choreographer Yuri Possokhov and theatre director Kirill Serebrennikov. The Bolshoi’s artistic director Sergei Filin suggested the two work together on a new ballet, and Serebennikov suggested Mikhail Lermontov’s novel as the subject. They adapted three out of the five short stories in the book for the Bolshoi’s new stage. The result of this collaboration is an interesting and innovative ballet, but also one that is beset by the complexity of the story.
