Bolshoi Ballet – The Golden Age (Live)
In a seaside town where business and mafia are flourishing, The Golden Age cabaret is the favourite nightly haunt of dancers, bandits and young revelers, where the young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita, a beautiful dancer, but also the friend of a local gangster. A satire of Europe during the Roaring 20s, The Golden Age makes for an original, colourful, and dazzling show with its jazzy score and music-hall atmosphere. This ballet that can only be seen at the Bolshoi has everything: 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 stylised step and gesture, magnificently.
