The journey of a hero

In 2018, 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’s men at their spirited and athletic best.

Lucas Jervies is a choreographer, a NIDA-trained director and a former dancer of The Australian Ballet. Spartacus is his passion project. His brand new production will feature the soaring music of Aram Khachaturian, sets and costumes by Jérôme Kaplan, who created the inventive designs for Alexei Ratmansky’s Cinderella. Witness our male dancers in their most powerful moment as the slaves who rise against the tyranny of their rulers.

Think ballet is all pointe shoes and tutus? Think again.
