The Bolshoi Ballet Live from Moscow: Spartacus


The Bolshoi Ballet Live from Moscow

In collaboration with the Pathé Live

Recorded broadcast from the Moscow’s Bolshoi Theatre

Choreography, libretto: Yuri Grigorovich
Music: Aram Kachaturian

Mikhail Lobukhin (Spartacus), Svetlana Zakharova (Aegina),
Vladislav Lantratov (Crassus), Anna Nikulina (Phrygia)
and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet

Grigorovich's Spartacus was created at the Bolshoi in 1968 and has since remained the Russian company’s signature ballet. This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the strengh for which the Bolshoi’s male dancers are renowned. Principal dancer Mikhail Lobukhin is stunning in the role of the legendary gladiator, along with Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina.
