The Bright Stream - American Ballet Theatre
Approximate running time 1 hrs. 51 min.
Zany and laugh-out-loud funny, Alexei Ratmansky's The Bright Stream celebrates the illusory nature of love with mistaken identities, hilarious deceptions and happy resolutions. During a harvest festival on a collective farm in the Russian steppes, a Moscow dance troupe arrives to entertain the workers, upsetting the applecart to humorous effect. Ratmansky plumbs the genius of Shostakovich's vivid folk music with his deft characterization in movement. "This comedy is a hit. Laughter rings out across the theater at this farce and its pranks." - The New York Times
