The Bolshoi Ballet...Bright Stream.

The Bright Stream

In 1935, Dmitri Shostakovich, one of the most celebrated composers of the 20th century, wrote an original score for a ballet called The Bright Stream. Set on a farm it delighted audiences but did not find favour with the Soviet authorities, especially with Stalin who thought the subject of collective farming too serious for a light-hearted and joyful ballet. It was banned and not seen again until it was revived by the brilliant young choreographer Alexei Ratmansky, a former leading dancer and artistic director of the Bolshoi.

An overnight smash hit in Moscow and subsequently in London, New York and other capitals to which it has toured, it's a comedic rural romp that incorporates dazzling Cossack and other ethnic dances as well as a side-splitting cross-dressing spoof of classical ballet, The Bright Stream will charm, delight and surprise Australian ballet lovers. And it too will be seen only in Brisbane.

"Alexei Ratmansky has managed to produce a work nothing short of a masterpiece."
