Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The flag-bearers of classical dance tradition, the Bolshoi Ballet, end their summer season with a reconstruction of a Soviet ballet, 'The Flames of Paris' – which is a bit different to 'Swan Lake' at least. Choreographer Alexei Ratmanksy has revived Vasily Vainonen's 1932 ballet, set during the French Revolution but intended to resonate with revolution-loving audiences in '30s Russia. The opening night leads are Natalia Osipova and Ivan Vasiliev, the ex-Bolshoi couple who have been making a name for themselves as global guest stars.
