About the Film:

Performed Live October 20, 2013 at the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow

The Bolshoi’s grandiose epic Spartacus recounts the story of a Roman slave’s fight for freedom. With its
famous Khachaturian score, since the 1960s it has been considered one of the greatest ballets in the
Bolshoi repertoire. The choreography by Yuri Grigorovich fills the Bolshoi stage with dynamic scenes of
tension and conflict, and gives full expression to the virility and strength for which Russia’s male dancers
are renowned.
