Love is the sacrifice we make for ourselves

By Maria Gregoriou

K-Cineplex screens in all major cities will be sparkling on Wednesday with a screening of the recorded performance of the ballet The Legend of Love from the Bolshoi Ballet is Moscow.

The ballet is considered to be one of the finest works to emerge from the former Soviet Union and is based on the legend of Farhad and Shiron, a story of unrequited love by Turkish poet Nazim Hikmet.

Along with forbidden love comes self-sacrifice, jealousy and a lot of suffering.

Featuring dance movements, sets and costumes inspired by the Middle East, this stunning ballet, which uses pure dance to tell the story, is further enriched by the talent of the Bolshoi troupe.

The Legend of Love is one of Russian master Yuri Grigorovich’s earliest choreographic works, and its storyline explores the conflict between love and duty through its two heroines.
