Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The Bolshoi Ballet performs Marius Petipa's 'La Bayadère', an unashamedly melodramatic slice of nineteenth-century Orientalism, telling the tale of a temple dancer's doomed love for a noble warrior. The ballet is probably best known for the 'Kingdom of the Shades' scene, a slightly incongruous but totally beautiful 'white act' featuring the whole corps de ballet ethereally descending to the stage in perfect unison.
