About

Journey to India's legendary past, where a dashing young warrior romances a beautiful temple dancer...lush gardens hide dangerous secrets...and shadows from the netherworld cast their spell. St. Petersburg's Kirov Ballet performs the 1941 three-act Soviet version of Marius Petipa's classic La Bayadère. A tale of forbidden love, murder, and a spectral voyage to the afterlife, this eye-popping spectacle radiates with vibrant sets and costumes, a classic score by Ludwig Minkus, and one of ballet's most mesmerizing scenes: the endless line of ethereal maidens floating across the stage in Act III's "Kingdom of the Shades."
 
"Beautiful dancing, perfumed with the delights of 19th-century classicism, and performed as only the Kirov can"

"A truly sumptuous theatrical experience…unmissable!"
