Tuesday November 13th, 7:15pm. ROH: La Bayadere (Live Broadcast).
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.
