The Taming of the Shrew, a pet project of The Bolshoi and Monaco’s choreographer Jean Christophe Maillot, will be shown on one of the biggest stages of Monte Carlo, the Grimaldi Forum Monaco, on December 19.
The premier of the ballet based on William Shakespeare’s comedy to the music of Dmitry Shostakovich, gained a thunder of applauses in Moscow in July.
However, ballet is rightly on top the cultural program to be shown in Monaco. Back at the start of the 20th century, Monaco became a home and rehearsal base for the legendary Russian Seasons of entrepreneur Sergei Diahilev. Ballet ties have continued since then, and teamwork on The Taming of the Shrew is yet another proof.
