Weber Center Announces the Bolshoi Ballet’s, ‘The Lady of the Camellias’, Recorded Live for Broadcast

La Crosse, WI – 02/05/18 – Weber Center for the Performing Arts announces that tickets are on sale now for the Stage on Screen broadcast of The Lady of the Camellias, which will be shown Sunday, February 25, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. in the Lyche Theatre at the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.

At a theatre performance of ‘Manon Lescaut’, the young and naive Armand is utterly captivated after meeting the ravishing and most desirable courtesan, Marguerite Gautier. Their encounter gives birth to a passionate yet doomed love.

Alexandre Dumas, fils’s novel comes to life on the Bolshoi stage, with prima Svetlana Zakharova as the ailing Marguerite seeking love and redemption from her life as a courtesan. The Bolshoi brings choreographer John Neumeier’s work of rare beauty and tragic death to new emotional heights, accompanied by Chopin’s romantic piano score.

The performers are Svetlana Zakharova as Margeurite, Edvin Revazov as Armand, Andrei Merkuriev as Monsieur Duval, Anna Tikhomirova as Manon Lescaut, and Semyon Chudin as Des Grieux.
