Royal Ballet Live: La Bayadere (12A)

Royal Ballet Live: La Bayadere

'Delayed Live' screening from The Royal Opera House

Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th-century classic ballet brings an exotic world of  temple dancers and noble warriors to life.


Nikia - Marianela Nuñez

Solor - Vadim Muntagirov

Gamzatti - Natalia Osipova

Choreography: Natalia  Makarova  after  Marius  Petipa

Music:  Ludwig  Minkus 

Orchestrated by:  John  Lanchbery

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.

Approximate running time: 3 hours 5 mins including two intervals.

Tickets: Adult £15.30, Student/Child £12.30

(includes an admin fee of 30p)
