Cast The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and sweet-natured Bianca, including Lucentio. However, her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered Katherina, is married herself.
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, revealing 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!
