Bolshoi Ballet Live returns to Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough this weekend with a live screeening from Moscow of Spartacus

In ancient Rome, Spartacus, a Thracian soldier, is captured by Crassus with his wife Phrygia.

Forced to fight as a gladiator and kill one of his friends, Spartacus plots an unprecedented uprising.

Grigorovich’s Spartacus was created at the Bolshoi in 1968, and has since remained the Russian company’s signature ballet.

This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the strength for which the Bolshoi’s male dancers are renowned

Principal dancer Mikhail Lobukhin in particular has won high acclaim in the leading role of the legendary gladiator, alongside Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina

They are joined in the cast by Vladislav Lantratov as Crassus, Anna Nikulina as Phrygia and the Bolshoi Corps de Ballet.

The screening takes place on Sunday, March 13 at 3pm.

Tickets priced £15 and £13 are available now from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at www.trinityarts.co.uk
