Bolshoi Babylon (PG) 87mins

Cinema |
29th January 2016 – 4th February 2016

The Bolshoi. Symbol of Russia, a national treasure – mystical and intriguing. Recently, however, the theatre has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons: intrigue, personal attacks and management changes have created lurid headlines.

Now, for the first time, the theatre directors are allowing a film crew access backstage. They see the coming months as a new chapter, and are ready to allow the 2013 -14 season to be recorded as a unique cinematic experience.

From the two-time Academy Award-winning Producer of Man on Wire and Searching for Sugar Man, BOLSHOI BABYLON will give a voice to artists and company members who are not usually in the limelight in irreverent and candid terms.

Combining epic themes with intimate portraits, historical dramas will be counterpointed with the untold personal stories of agony and ecstasy that lie behind every acclaimed performance. With unparalleled behind the scenes access, the film will pay tribute to the dancers’ extraordinary artistic and athletic talents, their abiding fear of injury and the ruthless ambition needed to survive in the world’s most famous ballet company.
