The Deal

Tulsa Ballet: “The Taming of the Shrew”

There’s small choice in rotten apples.

The controversial battle of the sexes, Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew treats showgoers to a madcap comedy about men and women’s efforts—and failures—to live together. The wealthy Baptista wants to find matches for his daughters. Suitors swarm around sweet Bianca, but temperamental older sister Katherina spurns any man who darkens her door. Enter the dashing Petruchio, whose wits and determination ignite a comedic battle of the sexes.

Unsurprisingly, this winning combination of humor and—perhaps unintentional—social commentary has resulted in a number of famous adaptations, including Cole Porter’s classic musical Kiss Me, Kate! and the teen comedy 10 Things I Hate About You. Tulsa Ballet’s spirited adaptation features choreography by the acclaimed artist John Cranko, set to Kurt-Heinz Stolze’s freewheeling arrangement of a Domenico Scarlatti score. To accompany the stunning displays of grace and athleticism, viewers can expect plenty of laughter—mixed, of course, with the occasional bout of outrage at the gender imbalance in Shakespeare’s day.
