The Flames Of Paris

135 mins.

In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way.

Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi’s overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky’s captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen’s The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.

New for 2018!

Music by Boris Asafiev and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky, after Vasily Vainonen.

$9 student tickets available only at the Amherst Cinema box office (not online).
