The Bolshoi Ballet live performance of the Bright Stream will play at the Rialto on April 29 at 10 a.m.

The Bright Stream celebrates the illusory nature of love with mistaken identities, hilarious deceptions and happy resolutions. During a harvest festival on a collective farm in the Russian steppes, a Moscow dance troupe arrives to entertain the workers, upsetting the applecart to humorous effect.

Ratmansky plumbs the genius of Dmitri Shostakovich’s vivid folk music to reveal the soul of his actor-dancers with a zest for deft characterization in movement.

Tickets are on sale now at the Rialto box office. For more information, call 250-338-5502.
