The choreography allows two opposing ballerinas to shine, while a
bronze idol comes vividly to life in a stunning solo. Throughout, the melody and moods of Minkus’s music perfectly match the fluidity
and precision of the classical choreography and the drama of the storytelling. Continue reading LA BAYADERE STARRING STEVEN McRAE FROM ROYAL OPERA HOUSE LIVE. GIVEAWAY
