    ^^^^ Thanks for this. I have never seen the full production. And my sole recording of it is the Ballet Suites 1-3 by Neeme Järvi with the Scottish National Orchestra (Chandos). Listening to ballet music out of context is not the same.

    One of my favorite Ballets. I really enjoy the Australian Ballet's production of Spartacus with Lisa Pavane and Steven Heathcote.

    I had this one.



    That famous theme was also used as the love theme in the movie Mayerling, which starred Catherine Deneuve, Ava Gardner, Omar Sharif and James Mason.

    I have the Naxos recordings of four suites - these form the bulk of the work but obviously the numbers are not in their original running order. I'd be interested to hear from TxllxT and anyone else who knows Spartacus well whether they think it's best heard as a complete entity or whether the suites are sufficient.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).
