The Flames of Paris

Пламя Парижа

Alexei Ratmansky revived Vasily Vainonen’s revolutionary ballet, The Flames of Paris, which brings overflowing energy and fiery passion to the Bolshoi stage. The fight for freedom in revolutionary fervour and sweeping romance makes for a lively and exuberant ballet, well loved by the audience. The significance of The Flames of Paris, with a synthesis of dance and theatrical skill, needs no further explanation.
