The Royal Ballet: La Bayadere (live) 2018

Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdomof the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost lovehaunt his mind.

The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while abronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.
