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; and our male dancers in their most powerful moment as the slaves who rise against the tyranny of their rulers.
The partnership connects La Trobe’s world-leading sport and exercise scientists with The Australian Ballet’s internationally respected injury prevention and rehabilitation team, developing innovative and exciting research that supports the elite dancers in their performance, studies and health. La Trobe students gain exclusive access to research projects involving The Australian Ballet’s dancers, providing a real career advantage and valuable industry experience with the best dance company in Australia.
