WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In February 2011, The Joffrey Ballet revisits the popular The Taming of the Shrew, last performed by The Joffrey in 2002. John Cranko's world-renowned ballet adaptation of William Shakespeare's classic story is a romantic comedy about the trials of finding balance in love. With music by Kurt-Heinz Stolze and Domenico Scarletti, The Taming of the Shrew depicts the boastful Petruchio as he attempts to tame the strong-willed Katherine. When it originally premiered at the Stuttgart Ballet in 1969, Cranko's translation re-defined narrative ballet through witty and subtle choreography that brought the characters and their foils vividly to life.
