During harvest festival on a collective farm, a visiting dance troupe reunites a ballerina with her childhood friend, Zina. In order to teach her unfaithful husband a lesson, Zina, the ballerina and the ballerina’s husband decide to swap roles for the evening.
Alexei Ratmansky invokes the genius of Shostakovich’s score, creating a laugh-out-loud masterpiece with slapstick comedy, hilarious deceptions, false identities (including Principal Dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a sylph) and many colourful characters! The Bolshoi bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in Ratmansky’s brilliantly choreographed smash.
