Set in India, La Bayadère: The Temple Dancer is the visually stunning
story of a temple dancer, her lover and the vengeance that separates
them. This opulent ballet has live snakes, gorgeous costumes, lavish sets, a passionate love triangle and breathtaking dancing. This is truly one of the greatest 19th century ballets, highlighted by the Kingdom of Shades scene, one of the most mesmerizing classical performances in all of ballet.

“Love is the gateway to eternity. It confronts all notions of time: effacing all memory of our beginnings and all fear of our endings.”
