Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema 2014-2015

The Pharaoh’s Daughter


Length: 180 minutes


Music Arif Melikov

Libretto Nâzım Hikmet
Original choreography Yuri Grigorovich
Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet



The royal apartments of Queen Mekhmene Banu are plunged into mourning – her young sister, Princess Shyrin, is dying. The Princess will only be saved if the Queen gives Shyrin her beauty. The Queen decides to sacrifice herself, but later regrets her action when she is disfigured and Shyrin falls in love with the Queen’s own lover, the painter Ferkhad.


This splendid tale of forbidden love, self-sacrifice, jealousy and suffering returns to the Bolshoi stage after a ten-year absence. The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.


Featuring dance movements, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.
