With more than 250 dancers, the theatre’s equally famous Bolshoi Ballet Company is also one of the world’s largest. Long known for panache and showmanship, soaring leaps and virtuoso technique, it manages to keep the revered tradition of classical ballet through generations of brilliant dancers and outstanding choreographers. A major part of the Bolshoi’s repertoire is given to chef-d’oeuvres of Russian music theatre from 19th and 20th centuries.

In order to be able to present productions to the highest creative performance standards, the world-famous principal dancers and corps de ballet of the Bolshoi theatre always keeps itself in a good trim.
