Asafyev: Les Flammes De Paris

In Memoriam of the Great French Revolution.

World Premiere Recording at the Bolshoi Ballet in Blu-ray.
The Flames of Paris belongs to the pearls of the pure classics of classical dance.

Produced in the 30's of the last century The Flames of Paris on a music by Boris Asafiev was presented on the eve of the anniversary of the October Revolution, and later continued to be included in the ranks of works which were always brought out for an airing on anniversaries of this sort. And this is hardly surprising, The Flames of Paris is
Read more about the conflagration of the great French Revolution. And it had a new "hero" type which, up to then, had not been encountered in ballet - one of its main characters was the populace, revolutionary in mood and ready for action.

The choreographer Alexei Ratmanky has attempted to make maximum use of the preserved fragments of Vasily Vainonen in his new ballet. The most talented soloists of the Bolshoi Ballet appear in this production as Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev or Denis Savin and Anna Antonicheva.
