Stuttgart Ballet, one of the world’s most renowned dance companies, is at the forefront of the international dance scene for more than 50 years. In Bangkok they present their hallmark production The Taming of the Shrew, one of the greatest ballet comedies of the 20th century. Inspired by William Shakespeare’s world famous play, Cranko brings to life the story of the shrewish Katherina whom no one wants to marry and the dashing and clever Petruchio who makes her his wife and “tames” her.
Katherina’s character undergoes a profound change during the course of the ballet as she lets her defences down and realizes that Petruchio loves her for herself. The utterly lovable Petruchio is given two bravoura solos that leave the audience breathless and cheering. Set to cheerful and boisterous music by Domenico Scarlatti, orchestrated by Kurt-Heinz Stolze, and with colourful costumes and a charming set by Elisabeth Dalton, The Taming of the Shrew evokes the sunlit streets and gardens of Italy and is the perfect ballet for the whole family.
