La Bayadère, Works & Process at the Guggenheim & PA Ballet


Recommended Posts

A new video from Works & Process at the Guggenheim featuring Pennsylvania Ballet:

Set in the grand temples of mystical India and featuring the doomed temple dancer Nikiya, her rival Gamzatti, and the warrior Solor, "La Bayadère" has been an epic tale of love and godly revenge since 1877. Prior to its world premiere, Pennsylvania Ballet Artistic Director and former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Angel Corella discussed his brand-new restaging of the classic ballet with an eye to changing cultural mores. Company dancers performed selections from the program.

This was an absolutely wonderful program. It made me want to score a ticket on Amtrak and the performance the minute I got home. Mobility issues may prevent me from doing that, but it's still on my radar.
