The Australian Ballet have unleashed the exciting tale of Spartacus, showcasing the incredible fierceness and agility of Australia’s male ballet dancers. 

Spartacus follows the historic story of an enslaved Thracian gladiator who longed for freedom, leading to him becoming a leader in the slave uprising against the Roman Republic. The tragic story explores the struggles Spartacus encounters during enslavement and war, and the passionate love story with his wife. 

The story has been reimagined by choreographer, director and former dancer with The Australia Ballet, Lucas Hervies. His version is filled with emotional intricacy, audience awareness and high impact ballet choreography. 

Audiences will be captivated by the beauty of ballet, in conjunction with the strength and intensity of the story. 

Nov 9-24. Opera House, Bennelong Point, Sydney. $35-$276+b.f. Tickets & Info:
