The temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor fall deeply in love, giving way to heated passions, and murderous intrigues when the Rajah and his daughter Gamzatti discover their forbidden love.
La Bayadere is one of the greatest works in classical ballet history – a story of love, death and vengeful judgement set in India. Dazzling sets, costumes, and one of the most iconic scenes in ballet, the “Kingdom of the Shades,” illuminate the tragic tale of the temple dancer Nikiya’s doomed love for the warrior Solor, and their ulimate redemption. A must-see!

This season presents the greatest classics for a cinema exclusive experience featuring the Bolshoi principals and corps de ballet.
Four classical ballets (La Sylphide, Don Quixote, La Bayadère and The Sleeping Beauty) will be presented along with the beloved Christmas tale The Nutcracker and the jazzy ballet The Golden Age, that can be seen only at the Bolshoi.
Carmen Suite-Petruska, Edward Clug’s new creation will close the season, with two very popular characters.
The Bolshoi remains the unshakable reference of ballet today.
