There was a particularly interesting view in The Independent, I thought. (Thanks to Jane Simpson for mentioning it.) Lots of historical background, about performance tradition as well as steps, and interesting comments about the dancers.

Comments on the review? The production? Did anyone go?

A Russian Masterpiece Full of Eastern Promise


La Bayadère may have kitsch elements, but it's also a superb spectacle. So why, asks Nadine Meisner, does the Royal Ballet's version fall short?
