"There is nothing like La Bayadère" - The New York Times
Florence Clerc's spellbinding adaptation of Marius Petipa's passionate tale of love, betrayal, and revenge.
Set against the rich backdrop of ancient India, La Bayadère tells the tragic tale of the love between beautiful temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solar. Lovers torn apart by twists of fate and doomed by uncontrollable vengeance, they are finally reunited for eternity in the Kingdom of the Shades. Florence Clerc's exquisite choreography combined with radiant sets and costumes and a magnificent score by Ludwig Minkus creates a vibrant classic which The Boston Globe hailed as 'breathtaking."
