With the Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
In 1923, in a seaside town in the south of the Soviet Union, where trade and the mafia are flourishing, Boris falls in love with Rita – a cabaret dancer at The Golden Age, and the girlfriend of the local gangster.
The Golden Age is a refreshing satire created for the Bolshoi by Yuri Grigorovich. Audiences will be fascinated by this original and delightful ballet with its jazz and cabaret musical parodies, frantic pace, passionate intrigue and variety of dance styles (classical, neo-classical, free, grotesque, folk and acrobatic). In the midst of this magical whirlwind, Boris and Rita’s love is drenched in poetic lyricism.
The show time given is the curtain-up time; doors open 15 minutes earlier.
