A brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov, ‘A Hero Of Our Time’ is a tragic poetic journey that can only be seen at the Bolshoi.

Choreographer: Yuri Possokhov
Starring: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists, Corps De Ballet

Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the Caucasus, on a path set by his passions. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts pain upon himself and the women around him…

‘A Hero Of Our Time’ is based on the larger-than-life hero Pechorin, adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece, three separate tales recounting Pechorin’s heartbreaking betrayals. Is he a real hero? Or is he just a man like any other?
