The Bright Stream
From the Bolshoi Ballet
Music by Dmitry Shostakovich
Choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
A laugh-out-loud comical ballet in two acts, The Bright Stream celebrates the maddening, baffling disillusion of love with both hilarious deceptions and joyful resolutions. The libretto, by Adrian Piotrovsky and Fyodor Lopukhov, tells the story of the members of a Russian farm collective in the 1930s and their humorous interactions with a group of visiting performers during the harvest festival. Known for his precise characterization in movement, Ratmansky uses Shostakovich's robust folk music to tell this zany tale, broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow.
