Bolshoi Ballet production from Moscow debuts on the big screen at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (October 26, 2016) – The Sedona International Film Festival presents Ballet in Cinema on Sunday, Nov. 6 when it hosts the big screen premiere of “The Bright Stream” from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. There will be one show at 4:00 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“The Bright Stream” features music by Dmitri Shostakovich and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky. The cast includes: Svetlana Lunkina (Zina), Mikhail Lobukhin (Pyotr), Maria Alexandrova (the Ballerina), Ruslan Skvortsov (the Ballet Dancer), Denis Savin (the Accordionist), Alexei Loparevich (the Old Dacha Dweller).
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 and 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.
“The Bright Stream” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Sunday, Nov. 6 at 4 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
