Sunday 23 November -- Live @ The Waterfront: Bolshoi Ballet -- The Pharaoh's Daughter -- Screening at 7pm at the Waterfront Cinema, Customhouse Way, Greenock. | Run-time: two hours 30 minutes

Young Englishman Lord Wilson is travelling through Egypt when a powerful storm breaks out. He is forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid, where the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful pharaohs lies entombed. Lord Wilson falls asleep and begins to dream that the princess has come to life. French choreographer Pierre Lacotte was exclusively commissioned in 2000 by the Bolshoi Theatre to resurrect Marius Petipa’s mighty Egyptian fresco, and he succeeded brilliantly in giving new life to this forgotten masterpiece.
