La Bayadère — American Ballet Theatre



Approximate running time 2 hrs. 45 min.

Amid the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India, Natalia Makarova’s staging of this great Russian classic by Marius Petipa is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. La Bayadère offers tour de force performances by ABT Principal Dancers as the tale’s doomed temple dancer, Nikiya, the warrior who betrays her, Solor, and her archrival, Gamzatti. The ballet also features the famed vision of the “Kingdom of the Shades,” showcasing the corps de ballet in gossamer white tutus, who fill the stage in perfect unison sublime as angels arriving from heaven.
