In an encore screening event, the venue will be showing the Bolshoi’s performance of Dmitri Shostakovic’s The Bright Stream from Moscow.

During harvest festival on 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, creating a laugh-out-loud masterpiece with slapstick comedy, hilarious deceptions, false identities (including principal dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a sylph) and many colourful characters.

The Bolshoi bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in Ratmansky’s brilliantly choreographed smash.

The event is on Sunday, November 13 at 3pm.

Tickets are £15 and £13 from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at
