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. For the 7th consecutive year, the Bolshoi Ballet opens its doors to global audiences only in cinemas for a 2016-2017 season boasting impeccable classicism and daring performances. With timeless classics (The Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake), productions signature to the Bolshoi (The Golden Age, The Bright Stream, A Hero Of Our Time) and an evening dedicated to modern choreography (A Contemporary Evening): the Bolshoi proves once again that it is one of the world’s foremost ballet companies.
