MARCO SPADA – Bolshoi Ballet

120 min | NR
With its scenes of devilish intrigue, kidnapping heroines, and lovers’ misunderstandings, MARCO SPADA is a fresh and joyful ballet not to be missed. The misdeeds of the bandit Marco Spada are notorious, but even his daughter has no idea of Spada’s secret double life. This rarely performed “swashbuckling” ballet in three acts has been recreated specially for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte. The production is both technically and dramatically demanding, featuring complex choreography, lead roles created for each of the five principals, several changes in scenery, and the participation of nearly all the Corps de Ballet.
