Fathom Events, BY Experience and PathÃ© Live are delighted to bring you Yuri Grigorovichâs Spartacus, performed and broadcast from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow, to cinemas nationwide on Sunday, March 13. 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. Grigorovich's Spartacus was created at the Bolshoi in 1968 and has since remained the Russian companyâs signature ballet. This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the virility and strength for which the Bolshoiâs male dancers are renowned. Principal dancer Mikhail Lobukhin is stunning in the role of the legendary gladiator, along with Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina and Vladislav Lantratov as Crassus.
