In ancient Rome, Spartacus, a Thracian soldier, is captured by Crassus with his wife Phrygia. Forced to fight as a gladiator and kill one of his friends, Spartacus plots an unprecedented uprising.

Grigorovich's Spartacus was created at the Bolshoi in 1968, and has since remained the Russian company's signature ballet. This most spectacular production is an epic tour de force, giving full expression to the strength for which the Bolshoi's male dancers are renowned.

Principal dancer Mikhail Lobukhin is stunning in the role of the legendary gladiator, alongside Svetlana Zakharova as Aegina.
