La Bayadere, a vibrant Petipa classic, takes the stage at The Boston Opera House. 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’s rich, lavish set design and production elements conjure up The Arabian Nights and Bollywood culture. 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.
