Romans in Burbank, California? Why not? On December 15-16, 2012, French troupe Histore'Event will present Spartacus and the Roman Legion at the Equestrian Center in Burbank. Burbank Leader reporter L. Thompson has the story.
The show features fighters dressed as gladiators re-enacting the revolt of Spartacus. The second portion of the show allows the audience to participate in the fun.
Olivier Brocard, who plays Spartacus, says, "The second part of the show is our specialty: gladiator fights. It's real fighting, like you can see in the UFC or MMA — that's why we're training every day. There is interaction with the public because we don't know who will win. The public will decide, like 2,000 years ago, if we have to die or live.”
