Bolshoi Confidential: Secrets of the Russian Ballet from the Rule of the Tsars to Today
by Simon Morrison

"Simon Morrison's Bolshoi Confidential lifts the curtain on Russia`s best-known cultural institution. An intoxicating mix of grandeur and gossip, it charts luminous performances on stage and sordid machinations in the wings from the age of Catherine the Great to that of Vladimir Putin... Sweeping and authoritative history" –Guardian

Under Putin in the 21st century, the Bolshoi Theater has been called on to preserve a priceless artistic legacy and mirror Russia's neo-imperial ambitions.

Co-sponsored by: Jacob's Pillow Dance, OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute), The Bookloft

Followed by a 12:40pm talk before Bolshoi Ballet in HD: A Hero of Our Time at 1pm
