    Performed in 1981 by Rudolf Nureyev and recently added to the Bolshoi’s repertoire, this rarely presented swashbuckling ballet, now sees its rebirth on the stage of the famed theatre. Re-created specifically for the Bolshoi by French choreographer Pierre Lacotte, 'Marco Spada', or 'The Bandit’s Daughter' is a grandiose and unique ballet both on a technical and dramatic level: complex choreography; five lead roles created for five principals; several changes in scenery; the participation
    of nearly all the Corps de ballet; and even the presence of animals on stage…
    With its scenes of pantomime, devilish intrigue, rejected suitors, kidnapping heroines, rebellion and lovers misunderstandings, 'Marco Spada' is a fresh and joyful ballet to discover.
    The American soloist David Hallberg stars as Marco Spada with Evguenia Obraztsova, Olga Smirnova,
    Semion Chudin and the Corps de ballet of the Bolshoi Ballet.
