DJKT Plzeň

The Taming of the Shrew

'Who better recipe knows how to tame a shrew, they should tell me! I'd be grateful.' This is how Petruccio announces his original plan for how to gain devotion and love of the unmanageable Katherine. The Taming of a Shrew choreographed and directed by Alena Pešková and the young composer Jan Kučera is an original ballet interpretation. The new Czech premiere has all the humorous symbols of Shakespearean comedy, and the poignancy of wit of the dance numbers keeps up with the lyrics of the great playwright.
