Hello Classical Music lovers!

The Ballet live transmissions from the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow Russia will start next Saturday and Sunday and only a few cinemas from Cinepolis chain will have these live transmissions.

I have purchased already my ticket on line at Protected content + 1.50 for the sms confirming purchase and the day of the event tickets will cost 180, the thing is that I can't assure you that there will be tickets available the same day of the event.... and since only very few cinemas has it I recommend you to buy yours in advance if interested.

I bought it at Interlomas VIP cinema, yes very far away but that was my best option... so I recommend you; if interested to meet in a more centric place, to send me a PM so we can meet closer to Polanco and from there go to the cinema and I will return you to meeting point after the performance. My car can hold Protected content

Here a synopsis of this performance:

The play opens as the student Lucentio arrives in Padua. He hears that the merchant Baptista has two daughters, but the younger, prettier daughter, Bianca, cannot be married before her strong-willed sister, Katherina. On seeing Bianca Lucentio falls in love with her and changes identities with his servant Tranio. Bianca already has two suitors, but doesn’t like either. The elderly Gremio hires Lucentio, disguised as a Latin tutor, to woo Bianca on his behalf, while Hortensio disguises himself as a musician to get access to her. Meanwhile Petruchio, a young adventurer from Verona, arrives to visit hisfriend Hortensio. He learns about Katherina and decides to woo her, aided by both Gremio and Hortensio.

Baptista is enthusiastic about Petruchio’s suit because the feisty Katherina is a burden to him and is continually quarrelling with her sister and with him. Petruchio will not be put off as he woos Kate and he fixes their wedding day. At the church, where Kate unwillingly awaits him, Petruchio arrives in an absurd outfit and after the ceremony he leaves for Verona immediately, with his new wife. On reaching there Kate is mistreated by Petruchio and his servants, and is denied food and sleep. To teach her to obey him Petruchio does not allow her new clothes or a hat. Eventually, worn down by her husband’s relentless eccentricity, Kate submits and accepts all his eccentricities. They set off to visit her father in Padua.

On the journey the couple meet Vincentio, Lucentio’s wealthy father, who is subjected to a strange conversation as Petruchio tests Kate’s obedience. The three reach Padua where Hortensio, rejected by Bianca, has married a widow and Baptista has been tricked into believing a passing stranger is Tranio’s rich father. While Vincentio attempts to unravel the complexities of the situation his son Lucentio returns from a secret wedding with Bianca.

Let me know if interested in coming together and by the way I have J3 seat.

Looking forward to see you
