In the era of the French Revolution, Jeanne and her brother Jérôme leave Marseille for Paris to support the revolutionary effort that is taking over the capital. While fighting for freedom, they both encounter love along the way. Very few ballets can properly depict the Bolshoi's overflowing energy and fiery passion as can Alexei Ratmansky's captivating revival of Vasily Vainonen's The Flames of Paris. With powerful virtuosity and some of the most stunning pas de deux, the Bolshoi Ballet displays an exuberance almost too enormous for the Moscow stage.
