The Taming of the Shrew
June 26, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - June 28, 2019 @ 9:30 pm€12 – €36
From 26 to 28 July 2019, the Compagnie des Ballets de Monte-Carlo will take the Salle des Princes du Grimaldi Forum, for 3 performances of Jean-Christophe Maillot’s “The Taming of the Shrew”, based on the work of William Shakespeare. A large format ballet created in 2014 for the Bolshoi Theater Ballet, “The Taming of the Shrew” received 3 Masques d’Or (best choreographic show, best female role, best male role).
If “The Taming of the Shrew” is full of humor and irony, the theme of the ballet is more serious: the search for the other half. Through the bitter jousting of Katharina and Petruchio, the choreographer focuses on what is vital in the love relationship: “I wanted to convey the idea that everyone can find their half, regardless of their character.
Who can say in love who are the best matched lovers? These things are mysterious and it is not up to us to judge them. “
