BALLET IN CINEMA PRESENTS THE PHARAOH’S DAUGHTER Ballet from the Bolshoi Ballet, Moscow  Young Englishman Lord Wilson is traveling through Egypt with his servant, John Bull. At the foot of a pyramid, they meet a caravan of Arab merchants who kindly invite them into their tent. Suddenly, a powerful storm breaks out. Travelers and merchants are forced to take shelter in the nearest pyramid. The caretaker requests his uninvited guests to watch the noise they make as Aspicia, the daughter of one of Egypt’s most powerful Pharaohs, lies in a tomb nearby. Settling down in a corner, the merchants light up their opium pipes. Lord Wilson also asks for a chibouk... He falls asleep and begins to have fantastic dreams. The Pharaoh's daughter, Aspicia, becomes alive and lays her hand over his heart. Lord Wilson is instantly transported into the past where he becomes Ta-Hor, an ancient Egyptian. Ta-Hor and Aspicia fall in love, but she is betrothed to a Nubian king... Music  by Cesare Pugni with choreography be Pierre Lacotte (after the ballet of the same name by Marius Petipa)
