Bolshoi Ballet: A Hero of Our Time

Pathe Live -- Pierce Jackson
Is a man heroic just because others call him a hero? Pechorin is a military man with a good service record, but he's arrogant and sensitive. He's also cynical and capable of keen insights into his own flaws, and he suffers from a self-destructive streak. And yet he still pursues women he knows will soon bore him, ultimately betraying them as he betrays himself with every nihilistic action. Mikhail Lermontov's A Hero of Our Time is the saga of a Byronic hero smart enough to see his flaws, but not smart enough to discern the meaning of his life. The Bolshoi Ballet presents choreographer Yuri Possokhov and librettist Kirill Serebrennikov's adaptation of the novel at 11:55 a.m. today at the AMC Chesterfield 14 (3000 Chesterfield Mall, Chesterfield; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $20.
