12:55 PM Opera on Film: The Flames of Paris Fathom Events presents The Flames of Paris, choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky, after Vasily Vainonen.

In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris in support of the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way.

Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi's overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Ratmansky's captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen's The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.
