18:00 La Bayadere
Ballet in three acts to Ludwig Minkus' music based on an old Indian legend about God's retribution for betrayed love. Libretto by Marius Petipa and Sergei Khudekov. Choreography: Marius Petipa. New scenic version: Yuri Grigorovich. Scenes from productions by Vakhtang Chabukiani, Nikolai Zubkovsky, Konstantin Sergeyev used. Designer: Nikolai Sharonov. Supervisor of scenery and costumes creation: Valery Levental. Music Director: Pavel Sopylov. "La Bayadère" originally choreographed in 1877 by Marius Petipa for the Mariinsky Ballet of St. Petersburg. The ballet - a tale of a young Indian temple dancer, or bayadère, betrayed by her warrior lover and poisoned by her rival - was an immediate hit. Through various stagings and revisions, it remained a Russian repertory staple over the next century, as familiar to audiences and dancers as "Swan Lake" or "Giselle".
