THE ROYAL OPERA HOUSE MUSCAT
IS DELIGHTED TO PRESENT
PERFORMED BY THE BOLSHOI BALLET OF RUSSIA
The Royal Opera House Muscat is delighted to present the classical ballet Raymonda which will be performed at the opera house over two nights and one matinee show. Raymonda will be performed by the world-renowned Bolshoi Ballet Company of the Bolshoi Theatre of Russia, a company whose name has long been known to be synonymous with excellence.
The ballet is a classical production, performed with stunning costumes and a striking backdrop, and tells the love story based on an ancient mediaeval knight’s tale. Raymonda is a beautiful young aristocrat engaged to marry the brave warrior, Jean de Brienne, who is away fighting. As Raymonda waits for his return, she meets a stranger in a dream, who then materialises at court and makes it clear that he would like to marry her. Just as the stranger attempts to kidnap Raymonda, her betrothed returns to challenge him. He is successful in fighting him off and is reunited with his love. The pair then marry at court.
With choreography by Yuri Grigorovich, and scenes from the original choreography by Marius Petipa and Alexander Gorsky, the Orchestra of the Bolshoi will be conducted by Pavel Sorokin. The Bolshoi is newly under the direction of the charismatic Russian conductor Valery Gergiev. Raymonda will take place on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 January at 7pm and Saturday 27 January at 4pm.
