In the 1920’s, The Golden Age cabaret is a favourite nightly haunt. The young fisherman Boris falls in love with Rita. He follows her to the cabaret and realises that she is the beautiful dancer “Mademoiselle Margot,”, but also the love interest of the local gangster Yashka…
With its jazzy score by Shostakovich and its music-hall atmosphere featuring beautiful tangos, The Golden Age is a refreshing and colourful dive into the roaring 20’s. A historic ballet that can be seen only at the Bolshoi!
