WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From the Bolshoi Ballet Broadcast in HD on our 46' Screen The Pharaoh's Daughter, originally a hit when first staged in 1862, fell out of favor with the Soviet regime. In 2000, Pierre Lacotte was commissioned to resurrect Petipa's mighty Egyptian fresco for the Bolshoi Ballet, and it became a hit yet again. Young Englishman Lord Wilson is traveling through Egypt with his servant, John Bull. At the foot of a pyramid, they meet a caravan of Arab merchants who kindly invite them into their tent. Suddenly, a powerful storm breaks out. Travelers and merchants are forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid. The caretaker requests his uninvited guests to watch the noise they make as Aspicia, the daughter of one of Egypt's most powerful Pharaohs, lies in a tomb nearby. Settling down in a corner, the merchants light up their opium pipes. Lord Wilson also asks for a chibouk...he falls asleep and begins to have fantastic dreams. The Pharaoh's daughter, Aspicia, becomes alive and lays her hand over his heart. Lord Wilson is instantly transported into the past where he becomes Ta-Hor, an ancient Egyptian. Ta-Hor and Aspicia fall in love, but she is betrothed to a Nubian king...
