This Sunday at 10 a.m., be at the Rialto Theatre for a spectacular live performance from the Bolshoi Ballet.

The Bolshoi perform the Pharaoh’s Daughter, an immensely popular and grandiose ’spectacular’ ballet when it was first produced for the Bolshoi in 1862.

The Pharaoh’s Daughter tells an exotic tale of a young Englishman at an Egyptian princess’s tomb. He is transported into the past, meets and falls in love with the princess, but has the dangerous complication of her betrothal to the Nubian king to deal with.

For more information, call the Rialto Theatre at 250-338-5502.
