The Bolshoi boldly takes on a new challenge in a triptych of works by three masters of modern and contemporary choreography. For the first time, the company performs
The Cage by legendary Academy Award-winning choreographer Jerome Robbins, a master of visualizing and translating music to movement. Together with Harald Lander’s homage to classical ballet in Études and Alexei Ratmansky’s colorful folklore-inspired Russian Seasons, A Contemporary Evening brings some of the best dancers in the world together with masters of contemporary choreography. The result promises to be an outstanding synthesis of Robbins’s energy, Lander’s virtuosity, and Ratmansky’s witty brilliance in a programming first.
