La Bayadère – The last four performances in the 2018/2019 season



The romantic ballet about a beautiful temple dancer set in exotic India. Don’t miss the last four shows this season! Two lectures for public before performances. Autograph signing of the new Ballet Calendar.

Oriental love story with grand sets a virtuoso dancing accompanied by the State Opera orchestra.

Lectures for public will be held before two of the four performances: On Friday November the 30. at 6.30 pm and Sunday December the 9. at 6.30 pm in the foyer of the first balcony of the National theatre. 

“Kingdom of the Shades, Golden Buddha, dancer Nikia and Radzha’s son Solor. Opulent exotic sets belong to this fairy tale just as much the legendary pas de deux. Get into the mind of Javier Torres, choreographer and director, and see what the connection is of La Bayadère and opium and whether opium plays part in our current version of this famous ballet!”

Learn more about the performance you are going to see and come to the lecture 30 minutes before the show. You will have the opportunity to understand more about the intentions of the choreographer and the dancing itself and will uncover interesting connotations. It is good to know more about what you love! Entrance to the lecture is free (bonus to the ticket), reservation is not needed.

Don’t miss the autograph signing of the new ballet calendar – purchase the calendar on the spot and have it signed by our dancers in costumes. Hang it on the wall at home or give it to your friends for Christmas. The signing takes place in the National Theatre historical building during the performance of La Bayadère on Sunday December the 2. at 4 pm:
