About the performance

La Fille du Pharaon was the first large-scale ballet by Marius Petipa. The premiere was given on the 18th of January 1862 at The St Petersburg Bolshoi (Kamenny) Theatre. In 1864 the choreographer transferred the production to Moscow, to the stage of the Bolshoi. The new performance took place on the 17th of September. In 1905, the next production of La Fille du Pharaon was created by Alexander Gorsky. In 2000, Pierre Lacotte referred to La Fille du Pharaon. His version, which is based on the original libretto, is still performed at the Bolshoi.

World premiere took place on May 5, 2000.
