La bayadėre

La bayadėre

Descripción

In this ballet inspired by an idealized Eastern setting, Petipa combined classical pas de deux with Indian exoticism and temple dancers: bayadères. This is the story of an impossible love that, in the kingdom of the shades, wins over the impositions of the earthly world. The 1980 version by the Russian dancer and choreographer Natalia Makarova (based on Petipa’s original ballet) for the American Ballet Theatre was the first in finding a permanent place in the repertoires of ballet companies around the world. Principal dancer at Kirov, ABT and Royal Ballet, she always displayed a brilliant dance technique and dramatic eloquence. Now she comes back to Teatro Colón to be in charge of the revival and to be paid a more-than-deserved homage to her remarkable career.

Stable Ballet

The Stable Ballet of the Teatro Colón was born of the concern that in the nineteenth century arises in Buenos Aires to have national artists who satiate the thirst for ballet awakened by the visit of countless foreign companies. It was in 1925 when the company's debut was realized.
