Event Description

During harvest festival at a collective farm, a visiting dance troupe reunites a ballerina with her childhood friend Zina. In order to teach her unfaithful husband a lesson, Zina, the ballerina and the ballerina's husband decide to swap roles for the evening… Alexei Ratmansky invokes the genius of Shostakovich's score at the Bolshoi, creating a laugh-out-loud masterpiece with its bits of slapstick comedy, hilarious deceptions, false identities including Principal Dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a Sylph and its many colorful characters! The Bolshoi bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in Ratmansky's brilliantly choreographed smash. Running time: 2:30 Captured live on Apr 29, 2012 Music Dmitri Shostakovich Choreography Alexei Ratmansky
