A 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 caberat numbers. With its passionate love story featuring beautiful duets between Boris and Rita, the Bolshoi dancers plunge into every styleozed step and gesture magnificently.
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 a friend of a local gangster....
