The Taming Of The Shrew
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.
