The Taming of the Shrew

a Bolshoi Ballet Live from Moscow encore broadcast

Baptista struggles to marry off his tempestuous daughter Katharina, a shrew who denies that any man could possibly be her match. 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 dancer's 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!

  • Music: Dmitri Shostakovich
  • Choreography: Jean-Christophe Maillot
  • Cast: Ekaterina Krysanova (Katharina), Vladislav Lantratov (Petruchio), Olga Smirnova (Bianca) and Semyon Chudin (Lucentio)
...dedicated to presenting and fostering quality arts, which inspire, enrich, educate and entertain people of all ages.
