The Bolshoi is “at the top of its game” (Telegraph, U.K.) in acclaimed choreographer Jean-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 Katharina 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.
