Broadcast as an Encore production from the Royal Opera House, London

Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th century classic ballet brings and 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.

Tickets: Adults £18, Concessions £17. Special Offer £15 (when you buy 4 different ROH or Met Opera tickets together. Available from the Box Office).
