Although no one has ever seen him, the misdeeds of bandit Marco Spada are notorious. Even his lovely daughter, Angela, has no idea of Spada's secret double life. He's raised her in his castle lair, while conducting his brazen plundering right under the nose of the Governor. Angela, meanwhile, has become romantically obsessed with Prince Frederici. But she's distraught to learn that he is already betrothed to Marchesa Sampietri - the Governor's daughter! Nineteenth century French composer Daniel François Esprit Auber's rarely performed ballet in three acts has been recreated specially for the Bolshoi by choreographer Pierre Lacotte. This glorious production is both technically and dramatically demanding. It features complex choreography, lead roles created for each of the five principals, several changes in scenery, and the participation of nearly all the Corps de Ballet.
