Bolshoi principal dancer Svetlana Zakharova in Bolshoi Ballet’s presentation of ‘The Lady of the Camellias’.

Alexandre Dumas's novel comes to life on the Bolshoi stage, with prima Svetlana Zakharova as the ailing Marguerite seeking love and redemption from her life as a courtesan. The Bolshoi brings choreographer John Neumeier's work of rare beauty and tragic depth to new emotional heights, accompanied by Chopin's romantic piano score.

As he arrives in Paris for the first time, the young and naive Armand is utterly captivated after meeting the ravishing and most desirable courtesan Marguerite Gautier. Their encounter gives birth to a passionate yet doomed love.

The Lady of the Camellias can be seen at Palace Cineplex this Sunday, February 25, at 11:30 a.m.
