Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the
Caucasus, on a path set by his passionate encounters. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts
pain upon himself and the women around him…
“Give me everything, it is still not enough.” The story based on the larger-than-life hero
Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov’s literary masterpiece in three separate stories
recounting his heartbreaking betrayals. Is Pechorin a real hero? Or is he a man like any other?
This brand new production by choreographer Yuri Possokhov is a tragic poetic journey that
can only be seen at the Bolshoi.
