La Bayadére: Stunning on stage

01 September 2014 | By Behind Ballet

The explosive technique, fever-hot drama and delicate beauty of La Bayadére has wowed the critics. The Australian says that Stanton Welch’s version of the ballet “makes a worthy contribution to The Australian Ballet’s repertoire and reveals a company at the peak of its dance powers.” The Herald Sun says of the Kingdom of the Shades scene, “It is ensemble work of the highest order – a ballerina’s dream and an audience’s delight.” The Age adds, “the corps de ballet handle the challenging parade of arabesques beautifully.”

Don’t miss La Bayadére in Sydney! It opens on 6 November, and  tickets are selling fast.
