2016-17 sea­son opens at Palace Cine­plex

Jamaica Gleaner - - ENTERTAINMENT -

PRE­SENTED BY by Ex­pe­ri­ence and Pathe Live, Bol­shoi Bal­let opens its doors to au­di­ences in cine­mas for a 2016-2017 sea­son boast­ing im­pec­ca­ble clas­si­cism and dar­ing per­for­mances. With time­less story-bal­let classics such as The Nutcracker, The Sleep­ing Beauty, and Swan Lake, pro­duc­tions sig­na­ture to the Bol­shoi in­clud­ing The Golden Age, The Bright Stream, and A Hero Of Our Time, and an evening dedicated to mod­ern chore­og­ra­phy, A Con­tem­po­rary Evening, the Bol­shoi proves it is the world’s pre-emi­nent bal­let com­pany.

The sea­son opens at Palace Cine­plex on Sun­day, Novem­ber 6, with an en­core per­for­mance of The Golden Age.

In a sea­side town where busi­ness and Mafia are flour­ish­ing, The Golden Age cabaret is the favourite nightly haunt of dancers, ban­dits and young rev­ellers, where the young fish­er­man Boris falls in love with Rita, a beau­ti­ful dancer, but also the friend of a lo­cal gang­ster.

A satire of 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 that can only be seen at the Bol­shoi, has ev­ery­thing to it: mad rhythms, vig­or­ous chase scenes and deca­dent cabaret num­bers. With its pas­sion­ate love story fea­tur­ing beau­ti­ful duets be­tween Boris and Rita, the Bol­shoi dancers plunge into ev­ery stylised step and ges­ture mag­nif­i­cently.
