Moscow Nights and Golden Gates Dancers will perform at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 15, in the F.G. Bulber Auditorium as part of the 2018 Banners at McNeese State University season.
Moscow Nights and Golden Gates Dancers tour America together, 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.
Moscow Nights is an exciting, versatile trio of prize-winning musicians from Russia. The ensemble’s repertoire is centered around the masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the full diversity of the culture.
The Golden Gates Dancers offer audiences an entertaining and authentic glimpse into Old Russia through music and dance. Their program is broad and varied and offers opportunities for audience participation.
The dancers will thrill audiences with their syncopated choreography, gymnastic leaping and explosive foot stomping. Meanwhile, the musicians play a range of songs, from gentle and humorous to vigorous and vibrant.
Tickets are $20 for adults, $5 for students under 18 and free for McNeese and Sowela students with current IDs.
Banners is supported by ticket sales, memberships, corporate sponsors and grants. For more information about the program or tickets, visit the Banners website at www.banners.org or call the Banners office at 337-475-5123.
