ROH: La Bayadere

12A

Last shown on 13 November 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 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.
