A new production from Moscow's Bolshoi Ballet, starring Svetlana Zakharova as the Egyptian princess and Ruslan Skvortsov as the English Lord.

A young English Lord traveling through Egypt takes shelter in a pyramid with a group of Egyptian merchants. After a round of opium, he has a fantastic dream in which he is transported to ancient times and enchanted by a powerful Pharaoh’s daughter. Originally a hit when first staged in 1862, The Pharaoh’s Daughter fell out of favor with the Soviet regime. In 2000, Pierre Lacotte was commissioned to resurrect Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and it became a hit yet again.
