The Bolshoi Ballet’s performance of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’.

The Bolshoi Ballet's The Taming of the Shrew will be showing this Sunday at Palace Cineplex.

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and docile Bianca, including Luciento. However, her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew, Katharina, is herself married.

French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, non-stop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi's audacity and energy in a completely new way. This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else!
