La Bayadère

Amid the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India, this great Russian classic is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. This spring, ABT 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. This 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.
Choreographers: Marius Petipa, Natalia Makarova
