Minkus: La Bayadère (The Royal Ballet)
Tamara Rojo (Nikiya); Carlos Acosta (Solar); Marianela Nuñez (Gamzatti);
Marius Petipa's exotic ballet, set in legendary India, is a story of love, death and vengeful judgement. Natalia Makarova's sumptuous recreation of Petipa's choreography, with atmospheric sets by Pier Luigi Samaritini and beautiful costumes by Yolanda Sonnabend, stars Tamara Rojo as the Bayadère (temple dancer) Nikiya, Carlos Acosta as Solor, and Marianela Nuñez as Gamzatti whose alluring presence challenges Solor's love for Nikiya.
Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
"There wasnt a single physical gesture that didnt mean something, that didnt speak of love trying and failing to blossom." (The Daily Telegraph)
"Overall, this is one of the best productions of a classical ballet that the ROH has ever staged or filmed." (Musicweb International)
