Enjoy festive live music to get you in the spirit (band to be announced soon).

This is also the last weekend to ride the Burke Bike Park, so we will be going out in style with a best whip competition at 4pm. Taking place at the bottom of Jester, see how sideways you can get for a chance to win some great prizes!

The Golden Age Bolshoi Ballet





Tickets: Adults - $18, Members - $15, Students - $6
 

Running time: 2:20

Music: Dmitri Shostakovich
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich
Libretto: Yuri Grigorovich and Isaak Glikman
Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
 

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 20s, 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.

This is an on-screen event.

The program will include classic and modern Cuban sounds by an eleven-member band playing various instruments like Spanish and steel guitars, bongos, cowbells, congas, trumpets, slide trombones, and others - plus vocals.
