St Petersburg Ballet Theatre continues its 2015 international tour with its London Coliseum season.
Internationally acclaimed Irina Kolesnikova brings together stars of the Mariinsky Theatre and the Bolshoi Theatre in a spell-binding production of La Bayadère.
La Bayadère is an exotic and mesmerising tale of love, murder and vengeful judgement by the Gods, set in the perfumed gardens and lavish palaces of India. Although the complete ballet is seldom seen in the west, there is hardly a company around that can perform to this degree the mesmerising and revered Kingdom of the Shades sequence.
A powerful and dramatic ballet to the lyrical score by Ludwig Minkus, this full-length ballet is accompanied by The St Petersburg Ballet Orchestra.
With lavish costumes, beautiful sets and a company of 55, this magnificent production is not to be missed.Several performances of Swan Lake will also be given. Image courtesy the ColiseumThe Irina Kolesnikova London Season with*:
