Lviv National Opera
La Bayadere (Ballet)
By L. Minkus
La Bayadere is one of the most enigmatic and monumental plays of Ludwig Minkus and Marius Petipa. The plot of the ballet seems to be a fascinating oriental fairy tale about love, loyalty and insidiousness.
The action takes place in Ancient India. The love of bayadere Nikiya and warrior Solor causes the rage of High Brahmin, who also loves Nikiya, and his daughter Gamzatti, the bride of Solor.
Nikiya dies from the bite of a venomous snake, which was in a basket of flowers that she was presented during a religious holiday. And now Solor meets the ghost of bayadere in his dreams only. However Solor and Gamzatti were not fated to get married.
The gods take revenge for Nikiya’s murder by destroying the temple and all of its occupants during the earthquake. In an apotheosis, the shades of both Nikiya and Solor are reunited in death and eternal love.
