THE ROYAL BALLET
BALLET IN THREE ACTS
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.
