LA BAYADERE – Bolshoi Ballet

A key work in the classical ballet repertoire, LA BAYADERE is the story of impossible love set against the backdrop of a lush, mysterious India. When a beautiful dancer and a warrior meet in secret, they swear eternal fidelity. However when the High Brahmin, who is also in love with the dancer, overhears them, he rushes to reveal their secret to the Rajah. Marius Petipa’s choreography, here in a new scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, is exquisite. Bolshoi principals Svetlana Zakharova and Maria Alexandrova bring the characters of this romantic ballet to life.
