Spartacus - The Australian Ballet

Spartacus - The Australian Ballet

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. Charting the journey of a man finding passionate love, his mission and freedom, the ballet showcases the company’s men at their spirited and athletic best.

Lucas Jervies is a choreographer, a NIDA-trained director and a former dancer of The Australian Ballet: Spartacus is his passion project. His brand new production will feature the soaring music of Aram Khachaturian; sets and costumes by Jérôme Kaplan, who created the inventive designs for Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella; and our male dancers in their most powerful moment as the slaves who rise against the tyranny of their rulers.

Think ballet is all pointe shoes and tutus? Think again
