  1. I think Alexandrova said something like that when she danced Gamzatti at the Bolshoi on 2013. And as Gamzatti she didn't say that Nikiya must die but only that she will marry Solor anyway!
  2. The Brahmin is devoted to God but he has strong feelings for Nikiya, so why not the fakir too? And he tries to save her because he hopes she would come to him! Solor, looks like he fears Rajah more than he loves Nikiya, so maybe he wants to get rid of her. After all Gamzatti is beautiful and rich! He wouldn't be the first nor the last person that betrays for money and power! Well, this is the magic of art. We see the same performance but we have so different thoughts and feelings about it at the end.
  3. As I see the story, at the end everyone has reasons to want Nikiya's death. The Rajah for his daughter, his daughter for Solor, Brahmin becauses she rejects him (his last hope is to save her, but she prefers to die), the fakir because he knows never could have a woman like her, and even Solor too, since he doesn't look too unhappy with this marriage!
  4. I think it makes a lot. After all who could put a snake in a basket if not a fakir? And even if he is not who gives the basket, he looks that he knows what is about! At the Bolshoi the fakir gives the basket and then runs to Brahmin like he asks forgiveness. At the Mariinsky follows the maiden and then returns and gives the antidote to Brahmin. Anyway, if the fakir doesn't gives the antidote to Brahmin where did he find it or why did he carry one?
  5. The fakir looks that he obeys everyone -Solor, Rajah, Brahmin! In some performances the fakir gives the basket with the snake to Nikya and he also gives the antidote to Brahmin!

  10. I see now that your list has all the ballets! Great work!
  11. I hope too. Although with so many ballet broadcastings on tv in Europe, I can't say I miss anything.
  12. Anyone, in Europe, who missed Cranco's Romeo and Juliet on arte.tv, will have another chance next year! https://programm.ard.de/TV/Programm/Suche/?sendung=284861086649051
