Bolshoi: Raymonda

[none]

2012, 250 mins

A ballet in three Acts based on medieval knights' legends.

With a lush, exotic score by Alexander Glazunov, Raymonda tells the tale of a French noblewoman betrothed to a knight of the Crusades, and her attempted abduction by a spurned Saracen rival.

The ballet ends with the famous celebratory Hungarian dance in honour of the Hungarian king.
