Classical dance with scenic logic

It was Marius Petipa who brought La Bayadère to the stage in St. Petersburg in 1877 with an expansive cast and imaginative scenic ideas. To this day, classical dance owes him an enormous legacy with far-reaching consequences. The choreographer Alexei Ratmansky is interested in what his works might actually have looked like. The intentions of Petipa are immediately comprehensible by means of almost completely handed down notations from Petipa's time that want to be studied and interpreted. In addition to the original movement ideas and step sequences, the sensitive connoisseur will also discover Petipa's congenial scenic logic and the incomparably effective connection to the music of Ludwig Minkus. In order to approach the original as closely as possible, Alexei Ratmansky not only reconstructs La Bayadère, but also dedicates himself to Petipa's taste and instinct in meticulous research. Jérôme Kaplan's stage design and costumes were also newly developed in this spirit.

Experience the exoticism of India with all your senses

An exotic dream world offered Marius Petipa the ideal setting. Against the backdrop of a fantastic India, in temples and palaces, in a sultry atmosphere in which one breathes exquisite sandalwood scents, the story of a forbidden love unfolds: Bayadère Nikia - an Indian temple dancer who has dedicated her life to the gods - loves the warrior Solor, who, however, is promised Gamsatti, the daughter of the mighty Rajah as her husband. Subject to the laws of tradition and exposed to intrigue, this union can only end unhappily. Only in the mysterious Kingdom of Shadows does the love of the two find its exaggerated expression. The eternal validity of the ethereal beauty of this ballet must not be missing in this version either. The dream image is embedded in the no less beguiling world of Indian settings, colours and decorations in which the love drama develops.
