Bolshoi Encore: The Taming of The Shrew

Sunday 12th Nov 2017, Corn Exchange Auditorium

Full Price £15.50 / Concessions Price £13.50

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!
