Notes & Reviews:

Spartacus is one of Aram Khachaturian’s most popular works. Based on events surrounding the Third Servile War, the scenario follows the exploits of the leader of a slave uprising against the Romans. Although the work was premiered in Leningrad in 1956, it was the 1968 Bolshoi production, choreographed by Yuri Grigorovich and starring Vladimir Vasiliev, that achieved the greatest acclaim for the ballet. This DVD presents a complete live performance of that production, featuring the stars who made it famous.
