The Bright Stream...was first done in 1935, to a brightly appealing score by Shostakovich and choreography by Fyodor Lopukhov, then a famous, progressive figure in Russian ballet. But Pravda, meaning Stalin, hated it; it disappeared from the stage, and it was revived only in 2003 by Alexei Ratmansky, the Bolshoi’s new artistic director. ...it sounds deft and appealing....The plot is a farrago of intrigues among the collective farm workers and a troupe of visiting artists sent to entertain them, complete with disguises in drag and loads of character dances....it’s all affectionately satirical...full of deft subtleties of color and phrasing...
John Rockwell, The New York Times,1/1/0001
