By Ludwig Minkus
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 Bayadère is one of the greatest works classical ballet history – a story of love, death and vengeful judgement set in India. Dazzling sets and costumes, and one of the most iconic scenes in ballet, the “Kingdom of the Shades,” illuminate the tragic tale of the temple dancer Nikiya’s doomed love for the warrior Solor, and their ultimate redemption. A must-see.
