The Bolshoi Ballet's MARCO SPADA

Captured LIVE in HD from Moscow
Ballet inBallet in 3 acts 
The bandit Marco Spada cheerfully plunders the surrounding region just under the nose of the Governor. He hides his identity carefully and raises his daughter Angela in a castle. Completely unaware of his double life and his clandestine activities, Angela is concerned about her love situation. She longs for Prince Federici but is shattered when she discovers she may not be able to marry him… 
 
The star of the ballet is DAVID HALLBERG, the first American dancer to ever be invited to join the famed Bolshoi Theatre.
 
Recently added to the Bolshoi’s repertoire in November 2013, this rarely presented "swashbuckling" ballet, now sees its rebirth on the stage of the famed theatre. Re-created specifically for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, "Marco Spada” is a grandiose and unique ballet both on a technical and dramatic level: complex choreography, five lead roles created for five principals, several changes in scenery, the participation of nearly all the Corps de ballet, and even the presence of animals on stage... With its scenes of pantomime, devilish intrigue, rejected suitors, kidnapping heroines, rebellion, and lovers' misunderstandings, Marco Spada is a fresh and joyful ballet not to be missed.
 
Running time: 180 Minutes with intermissions.
 
Music: Daniel-François-Esprit Auber
