La Bayadère will be showing Live at the Eden Cinemas on Tuesday 13th November at 8.15pm. Broadcast directly from the Royal Opera House in London, Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th Century ballet brings an exotic world of temple dancers and noble warriors to life. An encore screening will be showing on Sunday 18th November at 3pm.
La Bayadère is a story of love, passion and vengeance. Marius Petipa’s fantasy, set in legendary India, tells the tale of a temple dancer and the prince who loves her but marries another. The famous, moonlit ‘white act’ – The Kingdom of the Shades – is a corps de ballet highlight, as multiple images of the prince’s lost love haunt his mind. The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling.
The cast will feature Royal Ballet Principals Marianela Nuñez as Nikiya, Vadim Muntagirov as Solor and Natalia Osipova as Gamzatti.
Enjoy this staple of the Royal Ballet’s repertory in stunning high definition from the comfort of the Eden Cinemas.
