The Taming of the Shrew in Monaco
“The legendary Ballet of the Bolshoi Theatre interprets in December ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, choreographed by Jean-Christophe Maillot.Applauded since its première in July 2014 in Moscow, this creation represents an unprecedented event: it’s the first time that the Bolshoi has invited a foreign choreographer to create a full-night’s narrative ballet for its dancers. Over four months, Jean-Christophe Maillot has passed on his sense of narration and style to these great Russian artists, as famous for their acting as their dancing. For this large-scale narrative experience, a powerful work was required. Jean-Christophe Maillot therefore chose The Taming of the Shrew, the famous verbal sparring by William Shakespeare, which sets the flamboyant Petruchio against the cantankerous Katharina”, — we cite the site of Les Ballets de Monte Carlo.
