Breathtaking Story Ballets- La Bayadere

Mystery, fate, vengeance, and justice. The ballet relates the drama of a temple dancer, Nikiya, who is loved by Solor, a noble warrior. Gamzatti, Solor’s betrothed, swears to kill Nikiya in jealousy. Gamzatti presents her with a basket of flowers which contains a deadly snake. Upon her death, Solor, overcome with guilt and under the influence of opium, is reunited with Nikiya in the Kingdom of Shades. The vision of Nikiya remains with Solor as the wedding ceremony begins at the Sacred Temple. As Solor and Gamzatti say their vows and are blessed by the High Brahmin, the vengeance of the gods is unleashed. Nikiya and Solor are once again united in eternal love.
