The tireless work of the Bolshoi Ballet has lead to a well-deserved reputation throughout the worlds of opera and dance. This release forms part of a series, designed to highlight the best productions that have taken place among the walls of the hallowed theater over the years. Ruggiero Leoncavallo's I PAGLIACCI is one such work; beautifully rendered at the Bolshoi, it remains one of the most lauded works in opera history. In keeping with tradition, the stage design and costumes are as close to the original 1892 production as possible, with the cast making sure they pay homage to the theater with some highly reverential performances. Moving and awe-inspiring, this is a wonderful way to witness both a classic opera, and a legendary venue.
