Notes and Editorial Reviews

"The Australian Ballet production is a Roman epic with many spectacular elements." The Herald

A powerful and moving work, Spartacus shows episodes from an uprising of slaves in ancient Rome. The dramatic effects of this action are played out by those chiefly concerned: Spartacus, leader of the revolt; his wife Flavia; and Crassus, commander of the Roman army.
