A Contemporary Evening

Music: Benjamin Britten, Max Richter, Ludwig van Beethoven, Leonid Desyatnikov
Choreography: Hans Van Manen, Sol León, Paul Lightfoot, Alexei Ratmansky

Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet

For one evening, the Bolshoi takes  on a new challenge in Van Manen’s  Frank Bridge’s Variations, León’s and Lightfoot’s  Short Time Together and Ratmansky’s Russian Seasons.  This encounter between some of the best dancers in the world and masters of contemporary choreography results in an outstanding synthesis of bringing formal beauty, intensity and witty brilliance to a new level.
