New Year's ball in Bolshoi Theater
14 Jan 2021

This year the Bolshoi Theater of Belarus has celebrated Old New Year in style for the 12th time! On the night of 13-14 January, the theater hosted a concert of world-famous opera pieces, a ball of old and classical dances and a soirée to the marvelous sounds of the orchestra. A list of dances for the ball included a polonez, a counterdance, three waltzes, a polka, and two quadrilles - French and Virginia ones. The program was unveiled several months before the ball. Participants were pressed for time to polish their skills or learn new moves to dance proud along with Bolshoi Theater artists. The hosts of the evening were Vladimir Gromov and Olga Kazhgaliyeva.

At 20.00 the arriving guests were welcomed to well-known tunes. This year the format of the ball was slightly altered to feature more dancing, in addition to etiquette, dancing, and history workshops. The main theme of the Old New Year's Eve Ball was a magical story of Sleeping Beauty. The main dance program featured Bolshoi artists dancing to the great singing and ballet acts. In the intermission anyone could take to the floor and waltz around to the music played by the orchestra in the foyer of the theater.
