In ancient Rome, Spartacus, a Thracian king, is turned captive by Crassus with his wife Phrygia. Forced to fight as a gladiator and kill one of his friends, Spartacus plots an unprecedented upheaval. Choreographer Yuri Grigorovich’s “Spartacus” was created at the Bolshoi in 1968 and has since remained the company’s signature ballet. This spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the virility and strength for which the Bolshoi’s male dancers are renowned.
