  • Waterville Opera House 1 Common Street Waterville, ME, 04901 United States (map)

THIS IS A LIVE BROADCAST FROM THE BOLSHOI BALLET IN MOSCOW.

Written by: Alexander Glazunov
Choreography by: Marius Petipa
Approximate Running Time: 3 hours (intermissions TBA)

Raymonda is betrothed to Jean de Brienne, a gallant knight who pledged to go on a crusade led by the King of Hungary. When her beloved leaves, Abderakhman, a foreign knight, makes a bid for the hand of Raymonda and threatens her fate when she rejects him.

Raymonda is a must-see of the Bolshoi, a work of living dance history showcasing the ballerina as the ultimate virtuoso. Being one of legendary choreographer Marius Petipa’s final works, he fully armed this ballet with beautiful court scenes, romantic corps de ballet dances, Hungarian czardas and a title role suited for the most outstanding ballerina.
