The Bolshoi Ballet's THE GOLDEN AGE Comes to The Ridgefield Playhouse
The Bolshoi Ballet's production of The Golden Age will delight audiences with a refreshing and colorful dive into the roaring 20's, with a jazzy score by Dmitri Shostakovich and a music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos. See The Golden Age on the big screen in HD on Sunday, April 14 at 2pm at The Ridgefield Playhouse. This encore screening is part of Atria Senior Living Classical Series with support from Whistle Stop Bakery, underwritten by Jeanne Cook, Liz & Steven Goldstone, and Sabina & Walter Slavin.
In the 1920s, The Golden Age cabaret is a favorite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realizes that she is the beautiful dancer "Mademoiselle Margot," but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka.
