One of the best known works of the Russian ballet tradition, Sparatcus by Aram Khachaturian, follows the exploits of the leader of the slave uprising, Spartacus, against the Romans; the ballet first staged in Leningrad 1956. The Roman consul, Crassus, has sent his captive, the Thracian king, Spartacus to the gladiatorial ring. Meanwhile Spartacus’ wife Phrygia is taken to Crassus’ harem. Spartacus incites his fellow captives to rebellion; he and his men rescue the slave women, including Phrygia. This production is staged personally by the legendary Yuri Grigorovich; the Bolshoi Theatre has in its repertoire the exact same version – Grigorovich was for 30 years the choreographer of the Bolshoi Theatre.
Bashkir State Opera and Ballet Theatre is where the all time ballet great Rudolf Nureyev, began his career. The ballet theatre’s creative principles and careful nurturing of traditions found reflection in Nureyev’s art. The same principles and respect for traditions guide the theatre even today.
