NEW YORK, July 28. /ITAR-TASS/. The 15-day tour of the famed Russia’s Bolshoi Theater in New York concluded on Sunday with up to 40,000 people attending the performances given by the legendary theater over the past two weeks.
“We have brought to the United States our best performances, which make up the core of the Bolshoi Theater’s repertoire,” Bolshoi’s artistic director and performer Sergei Filin said in an interview with Itar-Tass. “The American tour was the first for us in nine years.”
The theater’s tour, held within the frames of New York's 2014 Lincoln Center Festival, presented a program, which included Rimsky-Korsakov's opera “Tsar's Bride,” and three ballets “Swan Lake,” “Don Quixote” and “Spartacus.”
One of the US organizers of the Russian theater’s tour said all tickets for Bolshoi’s performances were sold out in advance. The house was full even in daytime and on work days.
Local critics praised the Bolshoi Theater troupe’s outstanding artistic skills. According to them, the performances were splendid and filled spectators with great emotions.
It was a brilliant repertoire, which the theater brought to New York, one of critics said.
New York first staged the festival in 1996, created to open the theater world of other countries to the US audience. The represented genres range from classical music to circus, ballet to modern art, arriving also from Australia, Japan and Belgium.
Lincoln has served as host to worldwide famous theaters. Covent Garden, La Scala, Comedie Francaise and Russia's Mariinsky and Vakhtangov have all thrilled their audiences.
