    La Bayadère

    Presented by at Boston Opera House

    November 4 - November 14, 2010


    La Bayadère

    La Bayadere, a vibrant Petipa classic, takes the stage at The Boston Opera House next. The ballet is an important bridge between the romantic and classical eras of ballet and was first performed at St. Petersburg’s Maryinsky Theater in 1877. A story of betrayal and love set in exotic India, La Bayadere follows the heart-breaking tale of a temple dancer and a young warrior kept apart in life and united only in death. The ballet has rich, lavish set design and production elements which conjure up The Arabian Nights and Bollywood culture and is sure to transport the audience. The ballet contains the monumental Kingdom of Shades scene which traditionally features 32 female dancers entering the stage in single file in a dream-like sequence. Boston Ballet will present the Florence Clerc staging with vivid, new costumes and the absorbing scenery that are cornerstones of this classic.

    Since 1963, Boston Ballet has been one of the leading dance companies in the world on stage, in the studio and in the community. The Company maintains an internationally acclaimed repertoire and the largest ballet school in North America, Boston Ballet School.

    Boston Ballet maintains a repertoire of classical, neo-classical and contemporary works, ranging from full-length story ballets to new works by some of today's finest choreographers

      This was a mixed bag: The choreography for the male temple dancers was silly! And jarring. The Solor was completely lacking in charisma-- no electricity from him. The two female stars were very... Expand
