Encore Showing: Spartacus
Another chance to see Bolshoi Ballet’s signature ballet.
Music: Aram Khachaturyan
Choreography: Yuri Grigorovich
Starring: Mikhail Lobukhin, Svetlana Zakharova, Vladislav Lantratov, Anna Nikulina
Captured by the Roman army, Spartacus and Phrygia are condemned to slavery. After becoming a gladiator, Spartacus foments a legendary rebellion.
Grigorovich’s Spartacus was created at the Bolshoi in 1968, and has since remained the Russian company’s signature ballet. This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the strength for which the Bolshoi’s male dancers are renowned. Principal dancer Mikhail Lobukhin is stunning in the role of the legendary gladiator, alongside Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina and Vladislav Lantratov as Crassus
