Royal Ballet - La Bayadere

Royal Ballet - La Bayadere


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 Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind.

The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze 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.
