The Taming Of The Shrew

125 mins.
2016

Baptista struggles to marry off his tempestuous daughter Katharina. However, when she meets Petruchio, who is as ill-tempered as she, the two forces of nature ignite an unexpected and explosive encounter.

Acclaimed choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot brings out the wit, fast-paced athleticism and vibrancy from the Bolshoi Ballet dancers in Shakespeare’s rowdy comedy. Principals Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov clash, challenge and eventually give themselves to one another in a wonderfully entertaining production that can only be seen at the Bolshoi!

Captured live on Jan 24, 2016.

Music by Dmitri Shostakovich and choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot.
