The Taming of the Shrew
About the performance

The world premiere of the ballet The Taming of the Shrew in the production by Jean-Christophe Maillot was held on the 4th of July 2014 at the Bolshoi Theatre.

Jean-Christophe Maillot was not the first to be attracted by the idea of bringing the martial characters from the comedy by Shakespeare onto the ballet stage. Amongst his predecessors were Maurice Béjart (his version almost unnoticeably flashed by in the mid 1950s) and John Cranko, whose production became a classic and was shown in various places including the Bolshoi Theatre and until this day has decorated many stages around the world.

Premiered on July 4, 2014.

Synopsis

Part I

In the spacious house of the wealthy Baptista, the servants are mocking the masters in their absence: they mimic Baptista, the father, who is struggling to marry his elder daughter — Katharina, a fury — and denying the suitors of the younger one — Bianca, a goody two-shoes — who are required to wait. Baptista returns unexpectedly, putting an abrupt end to the servants’ comedy.

We meet his two daughters. The younger one, Bianca, who is the object of everyone’s attention, is as gracious as her sister Katharina is difficult and ill-tempered: nothing and no one seems to find grace in her eyes, except perhaps her father. She is the Shrew.
