The Bolshoi Ballet—in conjunction with Fathom Events, BY Experience, and Pathe Live—is screening three pieces from the Moscow stage in nearly 300 American movie theatres this July.
The first-ever Summer Encores Series will begin July 9 with a screening of Giselle, featuring Svetlana Zakharova and Sergei Polunin. The series will continue will Romeo and Juliet July 16 and conclude with Swan Lake July 23.
