Amid the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India, this Russian classic is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge.  This season, ABT offers tour-de-force performances by  Principal Dancers as the doomed temple dancer, Nikiya, the warrior who betrays her, Solor, and her archrival in love, Gamzatti.  This ballet also features the renowned vision of the "Kingdom of the Shades," showcasing the corps de ballet in gossamer white tutus, filling the stage in sublime unison as heavenly angels.
