At Pomegranate Theatre
The Pomegranate Theatre is proud to present this satellite broadcast as part of its cinema programme.
Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th-century classic ballet brings an exotic world of temple dancers and noble warriors to life.
An iconic 19th-century Russian ballet, La Bayadère was originally performed at the Bolshoi Theatre in St Petersburg in 1877. It remained unknown in the West until the Kirov Ballet toured with the Kingdom of the Shades scene in 1961.
Natalia Makarova saw La Bayadère as a child in Leningrad and created this production in 1980. It was first performed by The Royal Ballet in 1989.
The Kingdom of the Shades scene in Act III is one of the ballet's highlights, in which a series of arabesques across the moonlit stage demonstrates the strength of the corps de ballet and the beauty of Marius Petipa's choreography. (170min)
