Comedy and Dance Strike on the Big Screen with ‘The Bright Stream’, from the ‘2016-17 Bolshoi Ballet Cinema Series’
WHAT: The Bolshoi Ballet is back on the big screen with “The Bright Stream,” Ratmansky’s brilliantly choreographed smash production. The Bolshoi event bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in U.S. cinemas for one day only, Sunday, November 6 at 12:55 p.m. local time, from Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live.
During the harvest festival at a collective farm, a visiting dance troupe reunites a ballerina with her childhood friend Zina. In order to teach Zina’s unfaithful husband a lesson, the ballerina, her husband and Zina decide to swap roles for the evening. Alexei Ratmansky invokes the genius of Shostakovich’s score at the Bolshoi, creating a comedic masterpiece with bits of slapstick, hilarious deceptions, false identities (including Principal Dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a sylph) and its many colorful characters!
