Baptista struggles to marry off his tempestuous daughter Katharina, a shrew who denies that any man could possibly be her match. However, when she meets Petruchio, who is as ill-tempered as she, the two forces of nature ignite an unexpected and explosive encounter. Acclaimed choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot brings out the wit, fast-paced athleticism and vibrancy from the Bolshoi Ballet dancers in Shakespeare’s rowdy comedy. Principals Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov clash, challenge and eventually give themselves to one another.Bolshoi Ballet premium event. $15, $12 seniors/youth
