An encore HD broadcast from Moscow of Bolshoi Ballet’s “The Taming of the Shrew” will be screened at 12:55 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 7, at the Waterville Opera House, 1 Common St. in Waterville.

The event will be two hours in length and includes a five minute intermission.

Baptista struggles to marry off his tempestuous daughter Katharina, a shrew who denies that any man could possibly be her match. However when she meets Petruchio, who is as ill-tempered as she, the two forces of nature ignite an unexpected and explosive encounter.

Acclaimed choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot brings out the wit, fast-paced athleticism and vibrancy from the Bolshoi Ballet dancers in Shakespeare’s rowdy comedy. Principals Ekaterina Krysanova and Vladislav Lantratov clash, challenge and eventually give themselves to one another in a wonderfully entertaining production that can only be seen at the Bolshoi!

Tickets cost $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, prices do not include handling fees.
