The Taming of the Shrew
The Bolshoi’s acclaimed production of Shakespeare’s boisterous comedy, with choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot and music by Shostakovich.
Acclaimed choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot’s fast-paced, athletic production of The Taming of the Shrew is a perfect vehicle for the superb strengths of the Bolshoi. Drawing out all that is witty and light-hearted in Shostakovich’s music, this vibrant production perfectly conveys Shakespeare’s brilliantly entertaining depiction of the clash between two feisty individuals, as independent, tempestuous Katharina is ‘tamed’ by the boorish Petruchio.
