Bolshoi Ballet Live: A Hero of Our Time

Music: Ilya Demutsky

Choreography: Youri Possokhov

Libretto: Kirill Serebrennikov

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the

Caucasus, on a path set by his passionate encounters. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts

pain upon himself and the women around him…

“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” The story based on the larger-than-life hero

Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece in three separate stories

recounting his heartbreaking betrayals. Is Pechorin a real hero? Or is he a man like any other?

This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that

can only be seen at the Bolshoi.
