Bolshoi Ballet: A Hero of Our Time
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 with music by Ilya Demutsky is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.
Recorded live April 9, 2017 on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow.
