Photo Coverage: Bolshoi Ballet Triumphantly Returns to Toronto

The world-renowned Russian ballet company Bolshoi Ballet returned to Toronto last week for the first time in 33 years to perform the classic Swan Lake. It has been 135 years since the show had its world premiere, and it appears to be as gorgeous and timeless as ever before.

The Bolshoi Ballet was founded in 1776 and is one of the world's oldest ballet companies, and is known around the world for its bold style that combines classical ballet with expressive and modern elements to create a feast for the senses. BWW was on hand at The Sony Centre for the Performing Arts to capture photographs of the production, and we are thrilled to share them with our readers. The Bolshoi Ballet heads off to Ottawa next, where they will perform Don Quixote later this month.

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
