The Bolshoi boldly takes on a new challenge in a triptych of works by three masters of modern and contemporary choreography. For the first time, the company performs The Cage by legendary Academy Award-winning choreographer Jerome Robbins, a master of visualizing and translating music to movement. Together with Harald Landers homage to classical ballet in A?tudes and Alexei Ratmanskya?Ts colorful folklore-inspired Russian Seasons, A Contemporary Evening brings some of the best dancers in the world together with masters of contemporary choreography. The result promises to be an outstanding synthesis of Robbinss energy, Landers virtuosity, and Ratmanskys witty brilliance in a programming first.
