In 2019, 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 at their spirited and athletic best.
Filmed in front of a live audience and shown on the big screen at the Electric Palace.
