Hailed as the world's world's greatest male dancer, Carlos Acosta dances the greatest male ballet lead Spartacus, in Grigorovich's famous Soviet ballet, created for the Bolshoi to Khachaturian's famous score. Following sensational performances in Moscow and London, the Bolshoi's production was re-staged and filmed in January 2008 in the Paris Opera's Palais Garnier, especially for Acosta. The DVD also includes a 30-minute film, featuring interviews with Carlos and choreographer Yuri Grigorovich.
***** "Carlos Acosta IS Spartacus. The identification of role and dancer is absolute and all-encompassing. There is passion, power, subtlety and conviction unmatched elsewhere" Amazon
