“Spartacus” enjoyed immediate success and quickly became a flagship Bolshoi production after its premiere in 1968. The ballet displays the four-sided construction, favoured by Grigorovitch – good man, good woman; evil man, evil woman – and his signature themes of power and the necessity of sacrifice. In an unforgettable final tableau – a secular crucifixion – Spartacus is lifted high above his executioners, his body impaled on the points of countless spears.
