Bolshoi Ballet: Lost Illusions

Rated NR 180 min. 2014

Based on French writer Honoré de Balzac's novel, Lost Illusions is a new ballet created by celebrated

choreographer Alexei Ratmansky set against the backdrop of 19th century Paris. Ratmansky, along with

French dramaturge Guillaume Gallienne, tells the story of a young composer lured away from his friends

and his love by the prospects of fame and money. This stylized adaptation of Balzac's timeless novel

blends ambition, disillusionment and thwarted love, while exploring themes of human nature and restless

youth, set to a spellbinding original score.
