Wellfleet, MA – Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater presents the Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema, featuring exceptional productions on screen. Captured live from Moscow’s legendary Bolshoi Theatre, audiences will be captivated by stunning performances on select Sundays at their local theater.

From the oldest surviving ballet in history – the romantic masterpiece La Sylphide, to the full splendor of The Nutcracker and Don Quixote, there is no other company quite like the Bolshoi Ballet to perform these exquisite story ballets.

LA SYLPHIDE – Sunday, November 11, 2018 at 12:55 p.m. 

On his wedding day, the young Scotsman James is awakened with a kiss from an ethereal winged creature, a Sylph. Entranced by her beauty, James risks everything to pursue an unattainable love. “La Sylphide” is one of the world’s oldest surviving ballets, and a treasure in Danish ballet master August Bournonville’s style. Staged for the Bolshoi by Bournonville expert Johan Kobborg, this production is the ultimate romantic masterpiece.

DON QUIXOTE – Sunday, December 2, 2018 at 12:55 p.m. 

Inspired by heroic stories of brave knights, with his faithful servant Sancho Panza at his side, Don Quixote sets out on an adventure to meet his ideal woman, Dulcinea. With panache and sparkling technique, principal dancers Ekaterina Krysanova and Semyon Chudin lead the spectacular cast of toreadors, flamenco dancers, gypsies and dryads in the Bolshoi's critically‐acclaimed staging of this exalted performance.

THE NUTCRACKER – Sunday, December 23, 2018 at 12:55 p.m. 

On Christmas Eve, Marie’s Nutcracker doll magically transforms into a prince and together their wonderful adventure begins. “The Nutcracker” invites audiences of all ages on a magical journey, through a world of enchantment, complete with dancing snowflakes and dolls that have come to life, accompanied by Tchaikovsky’s beloved score. The timeless holiday classic returns to the Bolshoi stage this December for a live broadcast.
