The powerful story of the noble warrior Solor and the temple dancer Nikia, La Bayadère is one of the great favourites of the ballet repertoire and a touchstone production for the Mariinsky Theatre ballet company. Choreographed by Marius Petipa and first premiered in 1877, it combines the exotic setting of 19th century India with the stunning virtuosity of Russian ballet technique. Featuring the famous 'Kingdom of the Shades' - one of the most celebrated ballet scenes of all time - the Mariinsky Theatre's La Bayadère was filmed live at the annual Stars of the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg and is an unmissable cinema event for ballet fans.
