Presented by the Bolshoi Ballet.

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!

Choreography: Jean­‐Christophe Maillot
