La Bayadèrè:

Kingdom of the Shades + Ballet Vignette

LA BAYADÈRE
Kingdom of the Shades + Ballet Vignettes

May 21st - 23rd, 2015
Manitoba Theatre Centre, Main Stage

"The classically based but decidedly contemporary choreography flows smoothly, creating clever transitions from scene to scene." - Critical Dance

In conjunction with the RWB’s 75th anniversary, the RWB School Professional Division invites audiences to experience the talent and hard work of our student body firsthand. Marius Petipa's exotic La Bayadére was given its premiere at the Bolshoi Kamenny Theatre in St Petersburg in 1877. It was regularly performed within the former Soviet Union throughout the 20th century but was almost unknown in the West until 1961, when the touring Kiov Ballet performed the famous Kingdom of the Shades scene. Legendary India provides the setting for the tale of love, murder, and vengeful judgement by the gods, set to a lyrical score by Ludwig Minkus. La Bayadére's more frequently performed sequence is the dream-like Kingdom of the Shades, when a mesmerizing procession of ballernas dance in unison across a moonlit stage.
