Bolshoi Ballet Captured Live: The Taming of the Shrew

Running time 2:05

 

Music Dmitri Shostakovich

Choreography Jean-Christophe Maillot

After William Shakespeare

 

Cast Ekaterina Krysanova (Katherina), Vladislav Lantratov (Petruchio), Olga Smirnova (Bianca), Semyon Chudin (Lucentio), Anna Tikhomirova (the Housekeeper), Igor Tsvirko (Hortensio), Vyacheslav Lopatin (Gremio), Artemy Belyakov (Baptista)

 

 

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 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!
