Sergei Polunin Dances for American Audiences in Bolshoi Ballet's GISELLE April 8
After years performing with famed ballet companies around the world, ballet's bad boy is crossing over into Hollywood -- as only Baryshnikov has done -- with appearances in Jennifer Lawrence's Red Sparrow, the acclaimed Murder on the Orient Express and the in-production film The Nutcracker alongside Keira Knightly and Morgan Freeman. But before he becomes known as an international movie star, Fathom Events is giving American audiences the opportunity to see Sergei do what he does best: dance. On April 8, Fathom will screen the Bolshoi Ballet's production of Giselle straight from Moscow in hundreds of movie theaters nationwide, featuring Sergei as Albrecht.
The world-renowned dance company Bolshoi Ballet shows "dance as a vital force" (The New York Times) in their heart-stopping performance of "Giselle," hitting big screens nationwide on Sunday, April 8 for a one-day event. Captured live from Moscow's legendary Bolshoi Theatre, featuring a rare guest performance from world-renowned superstar Sergei Polunin, the production is part of the 2017-18 Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema Series, presented by Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathe?
