About

THE BOLSHOI BALLET
Vladimir Vasiliev, Artistic Director

The mighty Bolshoi Ballet has captured the imaginations of ballet lovers and defined the concept of spectacle since its creation more than two centuries ago. Under the direction of Vladimir Vasiliev, and powered by the energy, grace, and astonishing precision of a new generation of star dancers, this fabled company is once again commanding audiences around the world--and regaining its reputation as one of the world's finest. In its first U.S. tour in more than a decade, organized by the Kennedy Center, the company will dance its glorious staging of ROMEO AND JULIET and DON QUIXOTE--just the kind of romantic classic for which it earned its noble reputation.
