About the Show/Event
Find the best La Bayadere dance or ballet tickets at Royal Opera House, West End. Set in an Indian temple and originally choreographed by Marius Petipa. The ballet tells the story of the doomed love between Nikiya, a temple dancer, (also known as a bayadere), and Solar - a princely warrior. As the drama unfolds, the ballet features the most spectacular set pieces, including the mesmeric Kingdom of the Shades, which has been called one of the choreographic glories of the world. A ballet of the grandest scale, featuring elephants, tigers, cobras, fakirs and spectacular oriental costumes, La Bayadere tells a magnificent tale of jealousy, murder and above all, eternal love.
