BRATTLEBORO >> The Bolshoi Ballet direct from Moscow presents "The Golden Age" on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the Latchis Theatre, 50 Main St., Brattleboro.
The storyline takes place in a seaside town where business and mafia are flourishing. The Golden Age cabaret is the favorite nightly haunt of dancers, bandits and young revelers, where the young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita, a beautiful dancer, but also the friend of a local gangster.
This satire of Europe during the Roaring '20s, "The Golden Age" makes for an original, colorful, 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 Nina Kaptsova as Rita and Ruslan Skvortsov as Boris, the Bolshoi dancers plunge into every stylized step and gesture magnificently.
