About

After its 1857 Paris Opera premiere, Joseph Mazilier’s Marco Spada (set to music by Auber with a libretto by Eugène Scribe) disappeared from the ballet repertoire for more than a century.

In 2014, the Bolshoi Theater ballet corps displayed its trademark virtuosity and artistry in this performance telling the tale of the cunning bandit who infiltrates the Italian aristocracy.
