The Australian Ballet presents La Bayadere

Thursday 06 November 2014 to Saturday 22 November 2014


In this epic story of forbidden passion, a beautiful temple dancer and a heroic warrior fight for their love against a backdrop inspired by 19th-century visions of the exotic East.

Every minute on stage is powered by explosive classical technique and fast-moving choreography amongst blazing colours, opulent sets and lavish costumes created by design visionary Peter Farmer.

Stanton Welch, resident choreographer of The Australian Ballet and artistic director of Houston Ballet, brings a masterful dimension to this classic, crafting the story with unrivalled dance technique and a hint of Bollywood sass.

A kaleidoscope of beauty, colour and spell-binding movement, La Bayadère will leave you in awe. Don't miss this spectacular night out at the ballet.
