Natalia  Makarova’s  production  of  this  19th-century  classic  ballet  brings  an  exotic  world  of  temple  dancers  and  noble  warriors  to  life.

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.
