From the far reaches of St. Petersburg, Russia, and Tbilisi, Georgia, Golden Gates tours America performing masterpieces of Russian and Georgian folklore, song, and dance. Contrasting elaborate lyrical suites against pulsating dances, these cultures come to life in a whirlwind of colorful costumes and exotic sounds. This lively program presents an authentic picture of Russian and Georgian folk traditions. The dancers thrill audiences with their syncopated choreography, gymnastic leaping, and explosive foot stomping. The singing includes well-known tunes such as Kalinka, as well as Cossack war dances and Siberian love chants.
