Pechorin, a young officer, embarks on a journey across the majestic mountains of the Caucasus, on a path set by his passions. Disillusioned and careless, he inflicts pain upon himself and the women around him...
"Give me everything, it is still not enough."
This story based on the larger-than-life hero Pechorin is adapted from Mikhail Lermontov's literary masterpiece, three separate tales recounting Pechorin's heartbreaking betrayals. Is he a real hero? Or is he just 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.
