Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

The Golden Cockerel

Jun 1 - Jun 3

“In a flood of blazing color, the stage erupts in a style at once storybook naïve and neoprimitivist-modernist. Alexei Ratmansky’s narration is suspenseful, amusing, energetic,” praised The New York Times at its ABT premiere last season. This fairy tale features tour-de-force theatrical roles, including the doddering Tsar Dodon, the deceptively seductive Queen, and the darkly magical cockerel—all set against a kaleidoscope of vibrant color that evokes a mythical Russia.
