Did anyone see the July 8(?) performance of Spartacus w/ the Bolshoi and Acosta?

fandeballet - While I have yet to attend a performance of Spartacus starring Acosta, I got a sampling of his dancing on an amazing 1-minute clip from his July 8 debut performance in Moscow. It's the famous Act II segment of leaps, followed by fuettes and pirouettes, as Spartacus calls his troops to arms.

Go to You Tube. In the search-space, type two words: Acosta Spartacus

The above-described segment should appear, along with an extended pdd with Anna Antonicheva as Phrygia. Enjoy!

It's imprudent to go out on a limb based on a few selected clips, but it looks to me like the Bolshoi at last has a brawny, heroic Spartacus, and Acosta perhaps a new signature role! :)

Thanks for that :)

I saw Mukhamedov dance it when the Bolshoi first toured the UK in the '80s, and now I want to see Carlos Acosta - he looks like he has the same fight in him :jawdrop:
