New symposium to highlight the risks human activities expose the oceans to and the threats that those activities pose to human health

Ballet: The Taming of the Shrew

Ballet: The Taming of the Shrew

By Cassandra Tanti - July 10, 2019

The Taming of the Shrew, an epic ballet created by Jean-Christophe Maillot in 2013 for the Bolshoi dancers, will be on show at the Salle des Princes this July.

The ballet has been awarded three Masques d’Ors: best choreographic show, best male dancer and best female dancer, and is currently on a world tour.

Although largely humorous with a healthy sense of irony, the ballet tackles a fundamentally serious theme: the search for one’s better half. In a world where authenticity is eroded by convention, finding the perfect partner is no small feat, and Shakespeare’s play remains as relevant as ever. Rejecting male dominance within the couple unit, Jean-Christophe Maillot chose to focus on what’s vital in a romantic relationship.

The Taming of the Shrew conveys the idea that there’s someone for everyone, irrespective of who or what you are. “Who can judge a relationship with an outside eye? Love works in mysterious ways, and it isn’t for us to question it,” says Jean-Christophe Maillot.

The Taming of the Shrew will be performed on 26th, 27th and 28th July at 8pm at the Salle des Princes.
