On Sunday, February 28, the Fugard Theatre in Cape Town will be screening the Bolshoi Ballet’s Spartacus as part of the Fugard Bioscope World Arts Season. The screening takes place at 11 am.
The Bolshoi’s grandiose epic recounts the story of a Roman slave’s fight for freedom. With its famous Khachaturian score, since the 1960s it has been considered one of the greatest ballets in the Bolshoi repertoire.
The choreography by Yuri Grigorovich fills the Bolshoi stage with dynamic scenes of tension and conflict, and gives full expression to the virility and strength for which Russia’s male dancers are renowned.
