L A BAYADÈRE
BALLET IN THREE ACTS
LIVE IN CINEMAS TUESDAY 13 NOVEMBER 2018, 7.15PM
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.
APPROXIMATE RUNNING TIME: 3 HOURS 5 MINUTES, INCLUDING TWO INTERVALS.
