The Bright Stream
Alexei Ratmansky's vibrant staging of The Bright Stream combines acrobatics, disguise and farce, in a kaleidoscopic showcase of the Bolshoi Ballet's spectacular vitality. Set to Shostakovich's colourful score, this celebration of folklore, joy and love, brings the Bolshoi Ballet's heritage to the stage. Ratmansky rediscovered Shostakovich's score in 1995, and brought the ballet to the stage in 2003. This mischievous comedy is a non-stop festival of dance for young and old alike.
