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. With its jazzy score by Dmitri Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, "The Golden Age" is a refreshing and colorful dive into the Roaring 20s. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi. The Modlin Center for the Arts, in partnership with Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, will broadcast the fourth consecutive season of Pathe Live’s Bolshoi Ballet, featuring ballet productions direct from the grand Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. Each production will feature behind-the-scenes programming, including interviews with the cast and creative teams, either prior to the start of the production, or during intermission.
