Notes and Editorial Reviews

A film by Denis Sneguirev.

In this remarkable film, Denis Sneguirev invites us to witness the rescue and revival of Moscow’s legendary Bolshoi Theatre. In a mix of 3D images, animation, documentary footage and interviews, he recounts the history of the Bolshoi from its origins to the present day. Hitherto unknown archival material takes viewers back to a time when stars like Ulanova, Maximova, Plisetskaya, Vasiliev or Grigorovich graced the Bolshoi stage. Here we watch the teams of architects, engineers and construction workers labouring day and night to rebuild the theatre in the course of a colossal venture which Russia’s media dubbed the "construction project of the century".
