Bolshoi Ballet 2016-2017 Season: The Golden Age Film Poster


In a seaside town where business and the Mafia are flourishing, the Golden Age cabaret is the favourite nightly haunt of dancers, bandits and young revellers. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita, a beautiful dancer, but she is also the friend of a local gangster… A satire on 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 – which can only be seen at the Bolshoi – has everything: mad rhythms, vigorous chase scenes and decadent cabaret numbers. With this passionate love story featuring beautiful duets between Boris and Rita, the Bolshoi dancers plunge magnificently into every stylised step and gesture. 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.
