The Australian Ballet: Spartacus
Running time: 155 mins
In 2019, one of The Australian Ballet's most popular works springs to new life. Spartacus tells the story of a gladiator who led a slaves' rebellion against the Roman empire. Universal in its themes, Spartacus is a classic story of an underdog who fights back against all odds. The passionate love between Spartacus and his wife Flavia anchors an urgent rebellion against the Roman Empire and Crassus, a Roman general.
Charting the journey of a man finding passionate love, his mission and freedom, the ballet showcases the company at their spirited and athletic best. Think ballet is all pointe shoes and tutus? Think again.
