The Bolshoi Ballet's THE BRIGHT STREAM

Captured-Live Broadcast from Moscow

During harvest festival at 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 at the Bolshoi, creating a laugh-­‐ out-­‐loud masterpiece with its bits of slapstick comedy, hilarious deceptions, false identities including Principal Dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a Sylph and its many colorful characters! The Bolshoi bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in Ratmansky’s brilliantly choreographed smash.
