Marius Petipa's exotic ballet, set in legendary India, is a story of love, death and vengeful judgement. Natalia Makarova's sumptuous recreation of Petipa's choreography, with atmospheric sets by Pier Luigi Samaritini and beautiful costumes by Yolanda Sonnabend, stars Tamara Rojo as the Bayadère (temple dancer) Nikiya, Carlos Acosta as Solor, and Marianela Nuñez as Gamzatti whose alluring presence challenges Solor's love for Nikiya. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
"There wasn’t a single physical gesture that didn’t mean something, that didn’t speak of love trying and failing to blossom." (The Daily Telegraph)
"Overall, this is one of the best productions of a classical ballet that the ROH has ever staged or filmed." (Musicweb International)

There wasn't a single physical gesture that didn't mean something, that didn't speak of love trying and failing to blossom.' --The Daily Telegraph
The production is dramatic and romantic,and the costumes and sets suitably striking,creating a real visual feast on disc,supported well by a highly detailed,powerful orchestral sound,with just the right amount of audience ambience. It's all exotic and heady stuff and a delight to watch,with performances nicely tempered for the video close-up rather than the furthest row of the theatre. --Gramophone,Apr'11

Tamara Rojo, Carlos Acosta and Marianela Nunez - a dream cast! They are all fabulous including all the supporting artists. They are all so good and I especially enjoyed Jose Martin who gave a stunning performance as the Bronze Idol in the final act - (see Cover picture). This is quite a lavish production and there are impressive set designs and staging in the final act in the Temple. The destruction of the Temple is effectively conveyed by interesting lighting effects - although perhaps a warning should be included for the strobe/flashing lighting!
An interesting booklet accompanies the dvd and the production also includes a number of interesting extras, all of which are presented in high definition. The disc has a user-friendly menu system and there are a total of 52 chapters. Another useful feature is a very helpful précis synopsis that introduces every scene. Altogether, I would thoroughly recommend this disc. Well done to everyone concerned in this glorious production!
The corps de ballet deliver a performance of style and poise which will give considerable pleasure to the majority of viewers
The costuming and staging of the production are both traditional in style and sumptuous in effect.
This actual recording was made over two nights in January 2009 and is a first class example of the benefits of modern HD definition. The quality of the imaging is of consistently high quality with a good blend of close and full stage shots enabling the viewer to enjoy panoramic ensemble dancing as well as detail of the soloists in particular. The resolution of the colour is also excellent and completely capable of displaying the lavish costumes even in reduced lighting. There is no trace of movement blur. The equally excellent sound is presented in both 5.1 DTS and stereo.
The fairly extensive 'bonus' features offer real insights relating to several features of both the ballet generally as well as to this particular production. These bonus items should offer interest to both new comers and to those with greater knowledge and experience.
The first bonus is in the form of a 9 minute interview with Tamara Rojo as regards the particular challenges involved in dancing this role.Read more ›
I purchased this production for rare footage of Altynai Asylmuratova, Darcy Bussel and Irek Mukhamedov and was not disappointed, they are terrific. The picture quality is also excellent. The shades are not quite up to the standard of the other mentioned versions.
