19:00 La Fille du Pharaon
Ballet in three acts to the music by Cesare Pugni. Choreography by Pierre Lacotte (after the ballet of the same name by Marius Petipa). Libretto by Jean-Henry Saint-Georges and Maurice Petipa after the story Le roman de la momie by Theophile Gautier, version by Pierre Lacotte. Author of the score's version - Alexander Sotnikov. Starring: Maria Alexandrova, Sergei Filin, Vyacheslav Lopatin, Natalia Osipova, Andrei Merkuriev. The second birth of La Fille du Pharaon took place in Moscow in the year 2000 - the reconstruction was undertaken by Pierre Lacotte in answer to an exclusive commission from the Bolshoi Theatre. Pierre Lacotte, the famous researcher into our ballet legacy, who has breathed new life into more than one forgotten masterpiece of past centuries, had long ago been fired with enthusiasm by the idea of resurrecting Petipa's mighty, pseudo-Egyptian fresco: ever since, in fact, he had begun to realize the fascinating discoveries to be made by the would-be restorer of ancient ballets, an art genre that one might think did not lend itself to restoration.
