OFFICIAL SEASON TRAILER: New 2017-18 Bolshoi Ballet in Cinema Season

A Bolshoi Ballet Encore presentation:
THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
Captured live on Jan 24, 2016

Music Dmitri Shostakovich
Choreography Jean-Christophe Maillot
Cast Ekaterina Krysanova (Katharina), Vladislav Lantratov (Petruchio), Olga Smirnova (Bianca) Semyon Chudin (Lucentio)

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!  Running time approximately 125 minutes.
