The Bolshoi Ballet opens its summer season at the Royal Opera House with the spectacular staging of Spartacus by Yuri Grigorovich.

This monumental ballet, set to Khachaturian’s exciting music, first took London by storm in 1969 and displays the Bolshoi Ballet at its most powerful. The epic portrayal of the uprising against ancient Rome of the gladiators and slaves, led by Spartacus, is now an established classic of Russian contemporary ballet, epitomising the Bolshoi’s unique style.
