Fathom Events brings The Bolshoi Ballet’s ‘The Bright Stream’ to theaters in November

The Bolshoi Ballet is back on the big screen with “The Bright Stream,” Ratmansky’s brilliantly choreographed smash production. The Bolshoi event bursts with vivid life and bright spirits in U.S. cinemas for one day only, Sunday, November 6 at 12:55 p.m. local time, from Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live.

During the harvest festival at a collective farm, a visiting dance troupe reunites a ballerina with her childhood friend Zina. In order to teach Zina’s unfaithful husband a lesson, the ballerina, her husband and Zina decide to swap roles for the evening. Alexei Ratmansky invokes the genius of Shostakovich’s score at the Bolshoi, creating a comedic masterpiece with bits of slapstick, hilarious deceptions, false identities (including Principal Dancer Ruslan Skvortsov dressed as a sylph) and its many colorful characters!

From the early presser:

The Bolshoi Ballet is back on the big screen in full splendor with the 2016-17 Bolshoi Ballet Cinema Series in U.S. cinemas nationwide. With seven breathtaking shows between October 2016 and April 2017, audiences will experience timeless classics, productions signature to the Bolshoi and an evening dedicated to modern choreography. With an impressive new season, the Bolshoi continues to prove that it is one of the world’s foremost ballet companies.

“”It is absolutely wonderful that Bolshoi Ballet lovers in North America have the unique chance to see our productions through direct transmissions to cinemas, said Makhar Vaziev, Artistic Director of Bolshoi Ballet. “With our performances beamed live to the viewers in cinemas, audiences are able to experience a truly genuine feeling of ‘being in the moment’ with the Bolshoi dancers and inside our auditorium, and I am thrilled that our work and our artists will be seen thousands of miles from Moscow to North American cinemas for the 2016-17 Season.”

“The productions of the Bolshoi Ballet, an admired and lauded company globally, belong on the big screen,” said Julie Borchard-Young Co-President BY Experience. “We are thrilled to distribute the Bolshoi Ballet to hundreds of cinemas across North America, so ballet fans can experience their inspirational performances, up close on the big screen, right in their own communities.”
