AD CANCELLED!!!: Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema: The Golden Age

  • The State Theatre 130 West College Avenue State College, PA, 16801 United States (map)

DUE TO LACK OF INTEREST, AUDIO DESCRIPTION FOR THE BOLSHOI BALLET HAS BEEN CANCELLED!!  The State Theatre will feature the Bolshoi Ballet's The Golden Age in Cinema on its elaborate movie screen. In a seaside town where business and mafia are flourishing, The Golden Age cabaret is the favorite nightly haunt of dancers, bandits and young revelers, where the young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita, a beautiful dancer, but also the friend of a local gangster. 

A satire of Europe during the Roaring 20's, The Golden Age makes for an original, colorful and dazzling show with its jazzy score and music-hall atmosphere. This ballet that can only be seen at the Bolshoi has everything to it: mad rhythms, vigorous chase scenes, and decadent cabaret numbers. With its passionate love story featuring beautiful duets between Boris and Rita, the Bolshoi dancers plunge into every stylized step and gesture magnificently.
