The first dose of Bolshoi Ballet Live for 2016 at Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough is on January 24 with a brand production of The Taming of the Shrew.

Screened live from Moscow, this is special event for Trnity Arts as Shakespeare’s classic play is given the full Bolshoi treatment with music from Dmitri Shostakovic.

Many suitors dream of marrying the lovely and sweet-natured Bianca, including Lucentio.

However, her father will not let anyone marry her before her elder sister, the ill-tempered Katherina, is married herself.

French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot lands a coup with his adaptation of Shakespeare’s comedy tailored specifically to the Bolshoi dancers.

In the process, he achieves a magnetic two hours of breathtaking, non-stop dance unlike any other, revealing the Bolshoi’s audacity and energy in a completely new way.

This new production was staged exclusively for the Bolshoi and cannot be seen anywhere else.

The live screening starts at 3pm and tickets are £15 and £13 from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at www.trinityarts.co.uk
