Amid the sweeping vistas and grand temples of mystical India, Petipa's great Russian classic is a glorious epic of eternal love and godly revenge. La Bayadère offers tour de force performances by the Mariinsky's legendary ballet stars as the tale's doomed temple dancer Nikiya, the warrior who betrays her, Solor, and her archrival, Gamzatti. But nothing will prepare you for the spellbinding "Kingdom of the Shades," a showcase for the corps de ballet in gossamer white tutus, floating in perfect synchronicity across the stage, as sublime as angels arriving from heaven.
