Warsaw/Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera: Polish National Ballet’s “The Taming of the Shrew” – chor. John Cranko

4 February 2018 | 12:00 | Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera | Warsaw

Humorous and graceful, William Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew received a worthy treatment from British choreographer John Cranko (1927-1973). Created in 1969 for the Stuttgart Ballet, the piece is commonly hailed as one of the top 20th century choreographic comedies and a milestone in the world’s ballet canon.

 

The piece draws from the brilliant story of the rebellious Catherine, avoided by all those around her but for the contrary Petrucchio. It is only his perverse stubbornness that helps tame the shrew. The ballet also features a vast collection of characters based on Italian commedia dell’arte, who add to the trials and tribulations of the main characters. Cranko was a master of characterization, and his characters were beloved by audiences and dancers alike, as they create an opportunity for outstanding stage performances. Viewers witness Catherine’s metamorphosis from a dauntless nag to Petrucchio’s humble wife. He, in turn, is able to put on a display of manly cleverness, sense of humour and dancing bravado. Having proven themselves as audience favourites worldwide, the two characters will now take to the stage at the Teatr Wielki – Polish National Opera in what promises to be a colourful and charming family comedy.
