Bolshoi Ballet: A Contemporary Evening
April 5, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Showings at 1 & 7pm
For one evening, the Bolshoi takes on a new challenge with audacity in Hans Van Manen’s Frank Bridge’s Variations, Sol Leon and Paul Lightfoot’s Short Time Together and Alexei Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons. This encounter between some of the best dancers in the world and masters of contemporary choreography results in an outstanding synthesis of bringing Van Manen’s formal beauty, Leon and Lightfoot’s intensity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance to a new level.
Music Benjamin Britten, Max Richter, Ludwig van Beethoven, Leonid Desyatnikov
Choreography Hans Van Manen, Sol Leon, Paul Lightfoot, Alexei Ratmansky
