Notes and Editorial Reviews

La Bayadere (The Temple Dancer) was filmed live at the Kirov Theater (on the stage where it premiered in 1877) starring Gabriella Komleva as the pathetic temple dancer, Nikia; Tatiana Terekhova as Gamzatti, the Rajah's daughter, and Rejen Abdyev as Prince Solor.

This performance exhibits the perfection achieved by the Kirov corps de ballet. The orchestra, under the baton of Victor Shirokov, plays Minkus' scintillating music. A piece of history, and a work of art, La Bayadere is quite simply a gem to be savored again and again.

“…this historic production is highly recommended.” - Video Librarian
