This weekend, the Bolshoi revives the new Angelin Preljocaj ballet it opened this season with – “And then, 1,000 Years Peace – Creation 2010.”

The ballet may have a rather fanciful name, but it takes its theme from the Bible. However, those trying to find some coherent storyline in the dance will be left bemused – there is none, as such. The abstract work was inspired when the French choreographer visited Moscow in 2007 to select several soloists to take part in one of his productions. He was so impressed by the dancers of the Bolshoi that he came back to choreograph a new work for them.

Twenty-one dancers take part in the work, with music by Laurent Garnier and costumes by Igor Chapurin.
