From 14 September, Operaen: Passion, rivalry and dance that takes your breath away
Passion, rivalry and dance that takes your breath away – the Norwegian National Ballet is finally performing the entire Russian classic La Bayadère.
Since premiering at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1877, the ballet about the temple dancer (la bayadère) Nikiya has captivated audiences the world over. In an Indian-inspired setting, Nikiya and Princess Gamzatti fight over the warrior prince Solor, putting their heart into brilliant dance. It ends in tragedy: Nikiya loses the battle and dies – until she is reunited with Solor in the next life.
In addition to immortal solos and pas de deux dances, La Bayadère also includes the dreamlike scene in Act 2 called The Kingdom of the Shades. This is one of the most beautiful ballet scenes of all times and a demonstration of the company’s mastery.
La Bayadère is a production from the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in London.
