The Royal Ballet | Filmed live at Covent Garden on Tuesday November 13th, 2018 | Choreography by Natalia Makarova, after Marius Petipa | Music by Ludwig Minkus | Ballet in three acts | £17 Full (£15 Concession)
Natalia Makarova’s production of this 19th-century classic ballet brings an 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.
