Created exclusively for the Bolshoi Ballet comes a brand new work based on William Shakespeare’s comedy, The Taming of the Shrewstaged by one of the world’s most sought-after choreographers, Jean-Christophe Maillot. Broadcast direct from the Moscow stage – “The Taming of the Shrew” boasts two hours of nonstop, breathtaking dance performed by the Bolshoi’s leading dancers to select cinemas nationwide on Sunday, January 24, presented by Fathom Events, BY Experience and Pathé Live.

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and docile Bianca, including Luciento. However her father will not let anyone marry her until her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew Katharina, is married first. 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 performance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way. The production stars the original debut cast: principal dancers Vladislav Lantratov, Ekaterina Krysanova, Olga Smirnova, and Semyon Chudin.

WHEN:                 Sunday, January 24, 2016; Times vary by location. Please check your local listing.
