La Bayadere: Bolshoi Ballet
The Sedona International Film Festival presents Ballet in Cinema on Sunday, Jan. 20 when it hosts the big screen premiere of “La Bayadere” — a brand new production — from the Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow. There will be one show at 3:00 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Sedona audiences get to see the production the same day it premieres in Moscow!
The temple dancer Nikiya and the warrior Solor fall deeply in love, igniting heated passions and murderous intrigues when the Rajah and his daughter Gamzatti discover their forbidden love. La Bayadere is one of the greatest works in classical ballet history – a story of love, death and vengeful judgment, set in India.
Dazzling sets and costumes, with one of the most iconic scenes in ballet, the “Kingdom of the Shades,” illuminate the tragic tale of the temple dancer Nikiya’s doomed love for the warrior Solor, and their ultimate redemption.
With the libretto by Marius Petipa and Sergei Khudekov and choreography by Marius Petipa with the snw scenic version by Yuri Grigorovich, “La Bayadere” is a must-see theatrical event!
“La Bayadere” from the Bolshoi Ballet will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members.
