Bolshoi webcast crashes

An attempt by the Bolshoi Theatre to live-stream Yuri Grigorovich’s ballet Golden Age to music by Shostakovich was hit first by interference, then by total blackout a few minutes into the transmission.

It appears the Bolshoi was avoiding western servers such as Youtube for the streaming service and using an untested Russian technology.

Better luck next time.

  • I watched that ballet broadcast in Columbus, Ohio and do not even remember that short technical problem as music of Shostakovich, dancers and the whole performance were wonderful. I look forward to seeing next Bolshoi ballet in cinema.
