A jazzy ballet with a tango inflected score by Shostakovitch set in the roaring 20’s.
In the 1920’s, The Golden Age cabaret is a favourite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot,” but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka… With its jazzy score by Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, 'The Golden Age' is a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring 20’s. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi! Music Dimitri Shostakovich; Choreography Yuri Grigorovich; Libretto Yuri Grigorovich and Isaak Glikman. Dancers Nina Kaptsova (Rita); Ruslan Skvortsov (Boris); Mikhail Lobukhin (Yashka0 and Ekaterina Krysanova (Lyuska).
