Bolshoi: The Taming of The Shrew

To book, click an underlined time above.
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!
