Lincoln Center Festival: Bolshoi Ballet in The Taming of the Shrew

The Bolshoi is “at the top of its game” (Telegraph, U.K.) in acclaimed choreographer Christophe Maillot’s effervescent production of The Taming of the Shrew. Set to a tapestry of Shostakovich’s most colorful music, Shakespeare’s famously chauvinistic comedy is transformed into a battle of wits between two equally feisty individuals: stormy individualist Katherina and smug bad boy Petruchio. With their signature bravura, the Bolshoi’s incomparable dancers bring to hilarious life all of the fawning, preening, and hypocrisy that well-born Kate finds so tiresome — and that ultimately makes the rough-edged outsider Petruchio seem so appealing to her.
