The Bolshoi Ballet presents FILMED THEATRE SCREENING FROM MOSCOW The Golden Age

23rd Oct 2016 @ 16:00 - 18:20


A satire of Europe during the Roaring ’20s, with music by Dmitri Shostakovich, choreography by Yuri Grigorovich and libretto by Yuri Grigorovich and Isaak Glikman, The Golden Age is an original and dazzling show with its jazzy score and music-hall atmosphere.

In a seaside town where business and mafia are flourishing, The Golden Age cabaret is the favourite nightly haunt of dancers, bandits and young revellers, where the young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita, a beautiful dancer, but also the friend of a local gangster…

This ballet, which can only be seen at the Bolshoi, has everything to it: mad rhythms, vigorous chase scenes, and decadent cabaret numbers. With its passionate love story featuring beautiful duets between Boris and Rita, the Bolshoi dancers plunge into every stylized step and gesture magnificently.
