The Bolshoi Ballet's performance of 'The Taming of the Shrew'

BRATTLEBORO — An encore performance of "The Taming of the Shrew" on Sunday, Jan. 14, at 4 p.m. via The Bolshoi Ballet, Live from Moscow will screen at The Latchis Theatre, 50 Main St., Brattleboro. Music by Dmitri Shostakovich; Choreography by Jean-Christophe Maillot; and cast members Ekaterina Krysanova (Katharina), Vladislav Lantratov (Petruchio), Olga

Smirnova (Bianca) Semyon Chudin (Lucentio).

Baptista struggles to marry off his tempestuous daughter Katharina, a shrew who denies that any man could possibly be her match. However, when she meets Petruchio, who is as ill-

tempered as she, the two forces of nature ignite an unexpected and explosive encounter.

Acclaimed choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot brings out the wit, fast-paced athleticism and vibrancy from the Bolshoi Ballet dancers in Shakespeare's rowdy comedy. Principals

Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov clash, challenge and eventually give themselves to one another in a wonderfully entertaining production that can only be seen at the

Bolshoi! Captured live on Jan 24, 2016

General Admission is $20, students $10. There is a Colleen McCloskey-Meyer scholarship offering free tickets to students. Colleen McCloskey-Meyer was a regular patron of the Bolshoi for years, danced her whole life and will be missed dearly on behalf of Latchis Arts.
