Bolshoi Ballet: The Taming of the Shrew

The Bolshoi Ballet performs The Taming of the Shrew this Sunday 11: 30 a.m. 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, nonstop 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 will be shown this Sunday, 11:30 a.m. at Palace Cineplex.
