Presented by West Australian Ballet

A re-imagined, classical ballet full of bold colour, energy and a devastating love triangle.

Solor, son of the Maharajah, has pledged his undying love to the beautiful Nikiya, a bayadère (temple dancer). When he is forced by his father to marry the Governor-General’s daughter, a string of tragic consequences is unleashed.

This sumptuous new production of La Bayadère will sweep you into the exotic world of the 19th century British Raj. Within a cauldron of colonial politics, glittering ballrooms and opium-fuelled dreams, Solor and Nikiya are entwined through life, death and the ghostly Kingdom of the Shades.

A physical challenge for the dancers, this ballet will leave you in awe as they showcase bold jumps, big lifts and precision foot work.

Following his acclaimed productions of The Sleeping Beauty and Coppélia, Greg Horsman’s magnificent re-imagining of a revered classic originally created in 1877, is not to be missed.
