La Bayadère

La Bayadère weaves a spellbinding tale of palace intrigue and doomed love set in ancient India. Nikiya, the titular bayadère, or temple dancer, is in love with Solor, an aristocratic warrior. Though they have pledged their love to one another, their romantic plans do not align with those of their superiors. The temple's high brahmin conspires to take Nikiya for himself, while the lordly rajah decides to wed his daughter to Solor. Caught up in a web of dastardly plots, the two young lovers face a choice between blossoming passion and matters of duty.

Originally staged by renowned choreographer Marius Petipa to the music of Ludwig Minkus, the ballet is notable for its unique dances. In the famed Kingdom of the Shades, for instance, a distraught Solor smokes opium to take his mind off his misfortunes. Suddenly transported to a magic realm of floating ghosts, Solor does the only rational thing in the situation: attempt to impress the phantoms with his wicked dance moves.
