Bolshoi Live – La Bayadere (12A)
The Temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor fall deeply in love, giving way to heated passions, and murderous intrigues when the Rajah and his daughter Gamzatti discover their forbidden love. La Bayadere is one of the greatest works in classical ballet history – a story of love, death and vengeful judgement set in India. This stunning ballet brings to life the tragic tale of doomed love and ultimate redemption. The dazzling sets and costumes of one of the most iconic scenes in ballet, “The Kingdom of the Shades” make this a must-see.
Choreography by Marius Petipa, Conductor Pavel Sorokin, starring The Bolshoi Principals, Solists and Corps de Ballet.
