RIDGEFIELD, Conn. -- Ballet fans will want to visit the Ridgefield Playhouse when it presents Live in HD, "The Taming of the Shrew," featuring the Bolshoi Ballet on Sunday, Jan. 24.
The all new production, which begins at 12:55 p.m.at the playhouse, tells the story of Bianca, who is is wanted by many, including Luciento. However, her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered shrew Katharina, is herself married.
French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare's comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers, and achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, nonstop dance unlike any other, portraying the Bolshoi's audacity and energy in a completely new way.
This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else.
